I am the oldest child of three, then five and you could say six children. Three to my mum and oldest of my father's six children.
I am a wife.
I am a mother.
I am the mother of two boys and one girl. Maybe more to come. I would like to adopt or foster.
I am an artist. Always have been, but it was hidden until a couple of years ago.
I am the driver that has so many near misses with gutters and letter-boxes.
I am a lover of looking daggy and frumpy. I am not a glamour puss.
I am a lover of cardigans and gumboots, florals and dots.
I am a knitter, sewer, painter, create as often as my mind lets me type.
I am a person that wishes so much had been different in my childhood.
I am the product of my childhood - so many good things - so many tragic things.
Many say I am patient. I guess I am. I swear in my head instead of out loud. I don't shout.
I can't shout. My psych said she could help me shout.
I saw a psych. I'm not a psych, alhtough I've thought of becoming one. I analyse myself enough. I don't analyse people as much any more.
I believe in Jesus Christ that he died on the cross to give the gift of forgiveness and everlasting life.
I have that feeling of dread come upon me like wild fire at the unexpected rare late arrival home of my husband and children. I jump to conclusions that they are dead on the side of a road.
I am honest and do my best to keep my word. Sometimes I don't. I wish that wasn't so. Sometimes I just can't make that appointment. It must have been that type of day.
My greatest dream when I was a teen was to meet the man that would be my husband.
I wish I was a flautist or pianist or cellist. I don't play any music.
I love moss. I do believe in faeries (well I think I'd like to). I like quiet.
I have had depression since the birth of Master J, diagnosed that is. I am sure I remember the onset correlated with this time.
I was a people pleaser. I have worked hard to not be one now. I do find it hard to say no.
I value my family and close friends as one of life's greatest gifts.
I yearn for experiencing the arts and nature - day trips out with the family.
I talk to children like we have known each other for years. I will be a kindergarten teacher soon. I think the parents of the children I talk to think I am weird.
I think most people think I am weird.
I love trees. I want to hang bunting in my forest. I live in the hills, we are where we are meant to be.
I am the biggest I have ever been. And I don't have an eating disorder any more.
I am wondering if i should hit publish. I will. But I think that is all I will share for now.
