" The goal towards which the pleasure principle impels us - of becoming happy - is not attainable: yet we may not - nay, cannot - give up the efforts to come nearer to realization of it by some means or other." Sigmund Freud Trying to get into this whole writing thing again so thought I'd start with a new bio! So, if you've found you're way here Hey! I'm Charlotte, a young, married stay at home mum of two (one boy and one girl) living in a smallish part of Northern England. This year for us as a family and I hoping to make some changes (well, it is January after all!) Here's what I hope to do (I guess I might as well share!) > Lose the extra pounds number two has put on me - and by pounds I mean stones (oops) > Eat healthier, move more > Get number two into a bedtime routine > Keep on top of housework (the ironing soon piles up!) > Write for at least an hour a day > Play more with the little ones I like reading a variety of genres although its a lot harder to do with two little ones running around, my favourite genre to write is supernatural verging on romance I guess falling into the 'young adult' category although I hope they're accessible to any age. I like reading pieces which inspire reflective thinking and pushes the boundaries of what is acceptable. Some of my favourite books include: Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte Anything James Patterson The books of Pelinor - Alison Croggon To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee Vampire Academy - Richelle Mead If you've made it this far, why not drop a note to say hi? It'll no doubt remind me I haven't logged on in a while!
