My personality in pictures


Today's Fat Mum Slim's photo a day May challenge was personality. This is me!

A people pleasing, perfectionist who is striving for the cartoon happy family, but likes a moan occasionally!

I know it can be irritating, people who strive for the perfect life and believe you me, I haven't met anyone who has achieved perfection, but that doesn't mean I will stop trying. Everyone has ups and downs and faces challenges in life. My parents divorced when I was at University and it left our family quite broken for a while.

I always say, why sit around relaxing when you can be making something or uploading the latest set of photographs! This actually means that I very rarely just sit. I've always got the laptop open in the kitchen (rightly or wrongly) and fortunately my husband is a bit of a geek, so he quite happily sits with the iPad, next to me with the MacBook.

I put my heart and soul into things and it leaves me quite vulnerable. I know I can be terribly sensitive and find it hard to accept people who seem to have different standards. It will probably take my whole lifetime to learn that lesson.

p.s I do like pink, hence the gerberas! So living in a house full of blue was not necessarily how I thought life would be when I was a little girl! But I wouldn't change it. We are the luckiest people in the world!
