I am: a bit lazy, a bit hyperactive, a bit temperamental, a chatterbox, a bit antisocial, a daydreamer, a bit too trusting, a giggler, a bit clingy, a bit mad… I’m a Mummy and, currently, an impatient Mummy-To-Be (Come on BabyBump, get on with it…). I am also Mummy to two twitchy little gerbils, Fuzzball & Fluffpot, and three beautiful guinea-pigs, Spike, Tufty & Gingerbread. I am useless at remembering things and I am useless at housework…
The bravest thing I have ever done: was to learn how to live with my decisions and be strong enough to stand up for myself in the third year of University. A long-term relationship came to an end but we still had to live with each other for a year due to Uni housing contracts and whatnot. I had moved on, I was pregnant and happy but still, I had to live in the same house as my ex which was beyond tough. It was hard and there were times when I just wanted to run away home and give everything up and hide in a hole. I didn’t. I stayed, I built a new relationship with my ex – it was fragile and raw at the edges. It hurt sometimes. I hurt him. He hurt me. But we learned. We were both brave and now we are capable of meeting up and having a catch up in a cafe together, smiling and laughing, which means the world to me. If I’d run away and not been brave we wouldn’t have that and the past would still hurt. As it is, I can look back and smile because we had an amazing time together and for all it changed we still have friendship and can laugh together – we shared too much just to let it all go and never speak again but it took a lot of emotion and bravery to get through everything that went wrong.
I feel prettiest when: someone unexpectedly says something nice. Like last Saturday when Mum’s choir leader said I was ‘very petite’ for someone 38 weeks pregnant. Also when Sy looks at me on days when I feel like rubbish and tells me how pretty I am despite knowing I feel the total opposite. That makes me glow
Something that keeps me awake at night is: currently BabyBump who is clearly going to be a kickboxer or something…
My favourite meal is: Gammon steak with fried eggs, pineapple rings, chunky chips, peas and ketchup!!
The way to my heart is: through anything furry with four legs…
I would like to be: a bit less useless and disorganised. I am trying to get better. I still need a bit of work…
