Ok here goes…
1.My mum left my dad when I was five and took me to live with her and her chap. I wasn’t initially a happy bunny. To get back at her chap I used to occasionally very gently rub his toothbrush over the soap. The bathroom was next to my bedroom and I would delight in hearing him spluttering into the sink! How ingenious was I at five? God knows where on earth that originated.
(I do love him lots now).
2. Whilst visiting my Dad one weekend age about seven-ish, I walked up and down the road with a friend with a knife (as in knife and fork not carving) and scraped chewing gum off the pavement. I then put some of that gum in my mouth!!!! How gross was I and how did I manage to get out of the house with a knife?
3. My Grandad was a comedian called Hal Blue – Blue not as in the colour but as in very rude jokes. He had a small part in a film called “It always rains on Sunday” with Googie Withers (don’t you just love that name?).
5. I suffer from psoriosis. As a child I was in hospital with it a couple of times, but for the past 12 years or so I have been fine, just a little bit in my scalp. I always find it ironic because people will sometimes tell me I have good skin. Ha!
6. I love natural : natural beauty – shells, driftwood, pebbles, stones,wild flowers, the ocean, natural fibres, naturally funny people 🙂
7. As a result of being a member of the fabulous British Mummy Bloggers I am featured in April’s “Woman & Home” Magazine. It is about being positive in your 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. High Chihuahua!!
I went to London for a photo shoot a few weeks ago. It was fantastic – not so natural make-up ( I don’t usually wear too much), not my natural wavy hair (they made it really curly), not my natural choice of clothes ( I am most at home in jeans and very casual).
I completely just went with the flow and felt so pampered and lucky to be there. They also let my daughter come too which was fab – she was enthralled by everything.
Some of the words in the article are not mine – I would never use the word “fancy” as in my husband – even though I do, and I haven’t seen the pictures, so I don’t know what I will look like, but hey what a fab experience. I just hope I don’t come across as a complete numpty.
All lovely inspirational blogs.
