A world of change

As always, my posts of late have been lax. The world of Blokeman has changed so much, and my time and desire to be the bloke I once was has slowly whittled away to that of a far more functioning adult.

Of all the biggest change in my life has been the birth of my Daughter, something that has changed my core values, the way I think and all that I live for. Never before has something so strongly shaken the foundations of my life, it is amazing that something so small at birth, can be so big in a more metaphysical sense.

When the news broke, that my wife was pregnant, I had planned on blogging my experience as I knew it would be a roller coaster ride. My wife is not known for her stable moods and these were bound to be made worse by the rush and increase of hormones that were now circulating her system. However life got in the way, and the excitement and drama was something I wanted to live and experience rather than write about and share. To some degree I regret that decision as there were so many opportunities to amuse the world with my simultaneous joy and misery, and there were stories that I would love to have written down fresh to share with my daughter as she ages, before they are lost in the ether and fog of my memory.

As it stands now, my daughter will be turning one in a little over a month and the experience has been golden, it will go down as easily the best thing I have ever experienced in my life, even when you throw in the sleepless nights and utter distress you feel at times, every day brings new joy and new smiles and the bond and love that is there, grows stronger every day, the first 5 days of her life were spent in hospital, and I spent every day of that from, sunrise to late at night holding her in my arms, and they are precious memories that I will never forget.

So with such a massive change to the way i think, feel and do things, it is my hope that I can now retrospectively relate some of the stories and experiences to you, of course with the classic Blokeman comedic style added, where appropriate. Some of the people that read the blog from time to time or stumble across some of my old world of thoughts, may not be interested, some may, but I would dearly like to re-ignite this site as all people should have a place to put their thoughts, even if some of those thoughts are mundane and probably should not have been shared publicly.

I’ll endeavor to start retrospectively chronicling my journey in the next few days so stay tuned.
