This year I am taking part in Princess Lasertron’s annual writing challenge Radvent to help me kick-start this blog a bit. These aren’t going to huge posts because writing takes practice and it takes me an age to do something like this and I’d rather I got posts published quickly.
Things I know:
I find it terribly difficult to explain myself.
I’m a very ‘gut’ person. I feel very strongly about a lot of things, but it’s incredibly difficult to put these feelings into words. I’d like to elaborate, but I cant.
I want to be the very best role model for my daughter
That’s probably what most mums think, right? But I worry about how some magazines and some people complain non stop about body image and whether this person or that person is too fat and we must all try this latest diet and look at her, she’s far too skinny when we should all be celebrating how we are all unique and brilliant people. I don’t think I’m the prettiest of people, and I could do with losing a few pounds but I do not want Betsy to hear any if that from me as she’s going to hear plenty of that shit from others.
A cuddle on the sofa with a cat makes everything in the world ok.
I am so goddamn lazy
And I hate it, but I’m too lazy to do anything about it.
This has probably been the best year of my life.
It’s also been one of the most difficult, but most definitely one of the most fulfilling.
