#BEDA Days 1&2

Ok,  I realise I am a little late to the party but thats fashionable right?! I was reading my lovely cupcakes blog and saw that she has joined in with this linky for Emma at Outmumbered.  I joined in a few years ago and loved it so thought I would join in again this year. 
As I am starting a bit late I shall combine the first two days posts together to help me catch up. Without further ado...

Day 1: An Introduction and a Recent Photo... 

 I took this photo in my room a couple of weeks ago as I needed a profile pic for something. I don't look anywhere near as tired or worn out as I feel so Im quite happy to share it! 

I am Kat. I started my blog over 2 years ago as a way to offload. I was suffereing with severe post natal depression at the time and needed an outlet and to save bending y husbands ear every night! Hence the name,  Kat Sighs. I sighed a lot back then (and its also a little play on words..  Kats eyes - my view of the world). 

I have been married for 5 years and we have three lovely boys (who are also hard work) Their pictures are at the top of the page,  although I shall be updating it soon as we are expecting a little lady. She will be arriving in october so life is pretty hectic at the moment trying to prepare everything. We moved in January so we still have to decorate... 

I love my blog and the people I have met through writing it. I love to do swaps,  snail mail and attempt the occasional bit of crafting. I loved taking pictures,  especially macro shots but dont seem to have the time any more. In this long hot summer I have taken great pleasure in sorting out our garden and we now have a yurt as a child free haven. 

Ummm... What else...  I love stickers and dancing and music and bright colours and painting and rainbows and summer and animals and making things (even if they arent very good) and reading and buying presents for people and letters and really soft, fluffy things. Oh and the little things like travel toiletries,  just because they are small and cute. 

Oops,  that's quite long isn't it? Sorry! Anyway,  next!
