To the people that have kept me sane...



To all the people on who have been keeping me sane during the day, when I would otherwise have no one to talk to but a three-year-old and a 5 month old: thank you. If it weren't for you I would have lost my mind 8 weeks ago. I don't deal well with being a SAHM at all. I need to be around people, need to be talking, need to be socialising, need to be stimulated. From intelligent conversation, to mundane banter, to good laughs, you guys have provided me with almost everything I need to keep sane...minus the face-to-face contact. I just realised today how much I appreciate you all when I saw nasty comments on Mia's blog and just wanted to stick up for you all. It's weird. Not 12 months ago I would have thought someone who made friends online a loser (I'm sorry, I just had that mindframe!) But now I've made friends with a group of people I'd be willing to fly interstate to catch up with- and it's a nice feeling!
Thanks to: bugmum, KerriSackville, Mia Freedman (for your blog, who lead me to these brilliant people!), bellsg, numberchic, redhossy, taraschwarz, angelapinjuh, fender4eva, carly_grace, wite_wickah, Bern_Morely, CraigieMac, emjaystar, kateburge, AussieSoccermum, shonnyk, and overingtonc.

I hear you, sister...it's fantastic knowing that you'll catch up with 'friends' everyday...even when you can't go out for coffee xox

oh thanks Mel!
Right back at you too.
I work from home and deal with all of my clients by email. I consider you guys to be my workmates. You're all here on and off during the day while I should be working. If I need a break I just wander over to the water cooler (twitter or MM) for a chat. My work day would be very boring and lonely without you.

Thanks, wrote you a long winded comment over the weekend which has gone into some non-returnable place in cyberspace so quickly, ditto and thanks. Bern
