This is me, taken yesterday (see my previous post about makeup!) today i look like a drugged raccoon but thats ok, im not intending on being seen!
15 interesting facts about me
1: ive been separated for 23 months, legally we can get a divorce next month, scary… though i dont think either of us really care!! ive been back to using my maiden name for quite some time though, it flows a bit better.
2: i live through my children, i dress them better than me, i make sure they have the best i can give, i let them get away with probably way too much
3: im way too cruisy for my own good, i have no routine, apart from certain days where i have certain appointments every week. but i like it like this
4: i have a Diploma of Business Management, now days though im not allowed to call it a Diploma, its classed as a Certificate, i didnt take out a $20,000 student loan for a Certificate thank you, its a DIPLOMA! nuff said
5: ive been playing the guitar for 18 years now, and im still crap! music is my whole world, i love it!
6: most people in this world dont understand me, hell there are times when i have no idea who i am too, but i think a lot of people are too scared to even try…. their loss!
7: i have a younger Brother and 2 younger Sisters, im the bossy oldest, and the biggest! but least i got boobs :p
8: my 3 children have an uncanny resemblance to my siblings, its pretty unreal looking through old baby photos
9: im a chronic procrastinator, i start something and never quite finish it…. several months later i will pick it up and have a ‘what on earth was i thinking!?’ moment
10: i love to immerse myself into making things, be it sewing (i love sewing bags), beading, cooking, baking, maybe i love to make a mess? who knows, i love the satisfied feeling i get from finished creations.
11: i find it hard accepting gifts or compliments, i like to give, i like to make people things to show them i appreciate them, i like to do practical things to help, i like to compliment when appropriate, though for some reason i feel awkward when im on the receiving end.
12: I dont have a 9-5 type of job, im a mother of 3, Kaylee is 6, Olivia is 3 and Benjamin is 1, Kaylee and Olivia i have shared care with my ex husband who lives down the road a bit, Benjamins father doesnt know what he is missing. dick. i have goals that i am starting to plan for, i really would like to take my experience with suffering BiPolar disorder and use that in a positive way, i want to become a social worker, and eventually i will begin studying to achieve this. for now though, baby steps.
13: When im pregnant (ive been pregnant 4 times, had a miscarriage between my older 2 children) i have weird cravings of Mince and Cheese Pies, Chocolate Milk and Mandarins. these usually start before the test reads positive, and i tend to have horrible vomiting morning sickness the whole way through the pregnancy…. with that mix i wonder why!
14: i love Tattoos and piercings, i have my tongue pierced, have done for 10 years now, and i have a Monroe above my upper right lip, used to have a lot of ear piercings, but now i just have one in each ear, easier with children! i have 3 tattoos with a rather large 4th one in the planning stages, the very lovely Corey from Monk3ys has been designing it for me, i cant wait to see what he comes up with and the fantastic feeling of being tattooed can begin!
15: i have never left New Zealand, never infact left the North Island, never even been on an aeroplane. i am determined to see the whole of the South Island before i even consider venturing overseas. although i have dreams of New York at Christmas time, Egypt, the south of France, and i will probably have more to add to my bucket list when the time comes!
did you learn something?
until tomorrow (or before then if i need to get something off my chest!)
