and so it begins…

I have been inspired to start a blog by an amazingly brave, beautiful and funny lady known as ‘carriewords’. I am proud to know her and grateful to be able to call her a friend.

I have no idea of what I will blog about or if anyone will read it but perhaps centuries from now students will be studying primitive forms of communication and my blogs will be studied under the category ‘and now the crazy ones’, that is my hope anyway, ha ha.

At the time of writing this, my first blog, I am in my thirties, have a wonderful husband, two amazing children and a whole heap of fantastic friends and family. I am a civil servant in Scotland and we are just a few weeks before the Independence referendum. I love to travel, eat, drink wine, learn new things and spend time with the people I love. So if this has not put you off so far, keep reading and you will find that the path I travelled to get here was not so usual and the life I live is not so ordinary.

A wise man once said ‘ in twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than the things you did do’ (Mark Twain). Without knowing it, this is how I have lived my life so far.
