I want this post to be as positive as possible, really I do but I write this with a frustratingly sore, burnt leg after I spilt a cup of boiling hot tea down myself- and over my poor laptop (which has only just recovered from being swamped by water earlier this month enduring a trip to Google Android hospital) so the pain in my leg might just reveal itself in my words.
Yay it's that time again-blog party-#brilliantblogposts. A chance to link up posts you're proud of, discover new blogs and be discovered yourself!
Hey guys, what a whirlwind the previous week has been as I attended and spoke about my blogging career, at BritMums Live ( oh and my highlight-meeting so many of you guys-yay)!
I know I'm incredibly lucky in so many ways: I have a strong, supportive, wise and loving husband; the smartest, fun and most encouraging folks you could ever wish for, and a big group of fiercely bright and brilliant female friends (and one male bestie too of course-Will, you rock).
I can't live without the strong female friendships in my life.
Last night saw me meet up with two old friends, Carlie and Nicola for a much needed girly night.
Sorry for the Dad joke in the title, it was just too hard to resist a sheep-inspired pun! What a naughty little lamb I am (OK I'll stop now).
So yesterday saw me head to Manchester for a special meeting with renowned modelling agency Nemesis. One of the biggest modelling agencies in the UK, they discovered and made so many of today's British stars, famous: Robbie Williams, Gary Barlow, Melanie Sykes, Vernon Kay, Michelle Keegan and as of today, they're representing little old me!
It's a common misconception that being kind to yourself is well, a little self-indulgent and ridiculous but it's quite the opposite when you think about it, the kinder you are to yourself, the more accepting you are of you, the more energy and time you have for others and the happier life can be.
