This is Me

Hi guys,

Once again I am joining the fabulous Amy at While Wearing Heels for the monthly self portrait.

While Wearing Heels

 I was going with my usual laugh at myself approach since I don't feel comfortable with pictures of myself but recently I got a reminder that some people don't like me being me. Some people get offended when I state my love of wine. Seriously peeps, I'm not some deadbeat drunk hollering at her kids to fetch more booze, I like a glass or two on a Friday night. Of course this meme made me laugh and this months theme was recreating a picture.

Please note that I am neither drinking, classy or wasted!


The odd this this month was I had the title of the party running through my head, This is Me, This is Me and it got me thinking, who am I, and who are my readers and why are some offended by a glass of wine? What made them come in the first place?

So putting it out there, I don't beat around the bush, I call a spade a spade, I don't mind sharing bits and pieces of what I see as the fun and funny side of my life and my family's, although a lot less about them, since this whole blogging thing is about me and my crap.

Some people may find me offensive, some may find me too much, other might just find me boring and untalented and you know what I realized? I don't care.

I love the people who come here, the ones that share many common interests and the ones who are not like me. I am quite comfortable with who I am, I'm old and (somewhat) wise enough to know that while I may not be perfect, I try to be the best version of me. I try to be supportive of others, I try to show the good, bad and ugly because I know there are people out there who see all that Pinterest "perfection" and feel bad about themselves. I believe that not only is it okay to be different and to have disasters but they should be celebrated.

What you read here, is as close to me as you will get in real life and for those of you who read, if/when you meet me, you'll know exactly what to expect and if being honest about who I am means some won't like it, I'm okay with it, because this is me, and I'm okay with it!

Don't forget to check out the other "me" posts at While Wearing Heels.

Easiest Patchwork Ever!

Easiest Patchwork EVER, yep that's me calling it.

But for all you "proper" quilters (MUM) this is not a quilt! It's a blanket! It's so easy that anyone who can sew a straight line can fake a quilt.





I got this lovely pink pack sent to me from Wholeport and decided that it would make a lovely throw to keep me warm on these chilly Winter nights. You can find it here


Cut each one into quarters.

Decided on a layout.


Grabbed some minkee and cut it to size and overlocked/serged around the edges.


Now I have a nice warm place to read


Isn't pretty! A very quick project to keep you warm on those cooler nights!

WYPW


Oh yeah it's Wednesday!



I think this is a pretty accurate description, Julian is actually terrified of a future that will see 3 members of the household with this affliction.



It's Winter here and everyone has had colds, I totally do this and then complain everytime...why??


I wonder what the walls did to cause such a reaction??


Guess I will have to settle for Toy Story.


I kid you not I stub my toe almost every day on something and even if my little toe touches something I say ouch in anticipation of a broken toe...which has happened by the way.

Thanks for reading
