So it has come, after nearly 3 and a half years of blogging. I have been nominated for an awesome blogger award.
I always have loved writing, and I find it so therapeutic. I hid behind this blog for so long, and it became my safe haven where I could rant, scream, be honest and make sense of all the crap going around in my head without anyone knowing it was me. Not only have I been nominated for this award today but I’m having people reach out to my inbox and tell me how strong I am and how sorry they are for what I’ve been through. This is amazing to hear, I for so long felt like I should be ashamed, felt like I would be the one people blamed, which of course is all very silly! It wasn’t my fault.
I was nominated by Becki, a lady I have connected with on social media since I was pregnant with my first baby and she was pregnant too. She writes an inspiring, real and very raw blog surrounding her infertility problems Tales from my uterus . I love her no holding back stance for her blog as she is very much like me in that sense. Thank you Becki.

What made you decide to start blogging?
I’m not one for talking over and over again about the problems in my life and when I have so much going on in my head I need to get them out. Writing them down is that way. It’s my therapy.
Who inspires you?
Right now I have so many women who inspire me that I know on a personal level. These are women that I have met networking and I click with and I have taken so much from in order to escape the abusive life I was living.
If you could meet any celebrity who would it be and why?
Hmm, I’m not really a keen celebrity gossip stalker or get my self too wrapped up in the dramas of Hollywood. So I’ll go back to my youth, well younger days. Britney Spears! She’s had one hell of a life and all within the public eye. To come back after her shaving her head days that is some al mighty strength.
What is your favourite colour?
I like aqua green, or pink. Every girl loves pink right?
What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s happened to you?
To be honest I don’t get embarrassed easily. I guess it was always pretty embarrassing when I would fall over my own feet and end up on the floor. Usually I would be drunk anyway so wouldn’t be until the next day.
What is your favourite animal?
I do love a pig, well piglets not those huge dark coloured dinosaur pigs! Giraffes are pretty cool too.
Where is the one place in the world you want to visit?
I’m a massive home bird and don’t particularly have a bucket list for these things. I guess Hollywood, because it seems cool. I would need unlimited cash though, or it wouldn’t be much fun.
What advice would you give your 16 year old self?
Always be real, don’t be so desperate for love as you attract the wrong type of love.
You need to make a three course dinner for your friends, what you making?
Tinned soup, lasagne and a bought cheesecake
What was your favourite subject at school?
English of course. Creative writing particularly.
