If you really knew me


If you really knew me:

  • You’d know I can’t stand photos of myself where my face is in profile. I have a large nose.
  • You’d know I love to sing and have an issue with volume when I do. The music has to be louder than my singing but I instinctively compete.
  • I have an epic lung capacity and can hold a note for EVER – well not quite but I can hold it for a really long time.
  • You’d know that I have a licence but a dumb fear of driving.
  • You’d know I have a love affair with Glastonbury music festival. I hate it if I’m missing a year but loath camping.
  • You’d know I have a diagnosed issue with anxiety but I’ve learned how to deal with it in most situations. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
  • You’d know that I’m so much happier sitting listening to chatter surrounded by friends than being the centre of attention.
  • You’d know that 99% of the time I’ll decline an invite to a party or dinner/drinks, but I never want anyone to stop asking me because there’s always that 1%.
  • You’d know that I’ll always take a beer or cocktail over a glass of wine.
  • You’d know that I’m a culture snob. Food, music, films, books, TV, clothes – I have really high standards.
  • You’d know I work hard on my carefree nonchalant attitude….. say what?
  • You’d know that I’m fiercely protective of my friends, and I don’t see age as a barrier to close friendship. I have best friends 10 years younger and older than me.
  • You’d know that I hate the surprise on people’s faces when they find out how old I am. Yes I look young….. Yes I’m married….. Yes I have had a full-time job for the last 10 years – get over it. I doubt they’d like it if I told them they looked way older than their age?
  • You’d know that I can be as insecure as anyone. Watch your mouth and your tone and I’ll do the same for you. It’s the Golden Rule!
  • You’d know I love rollercoasters and they give me the same thrill as scary movies, which I also love!

  1. Thanks for sharing!! I feel the same abt my nose btw. :p I agree with you on the golden rule too. And lol on the age thing – totally hear ya.

  2. I know you’re lovely and talented and a beautiful daughter. I also know your nose isn’t big. Who does like their own profile? It’s an aspect of yourself that you are unfamiliar with.
