Wow it's 11am already and I'm still in my pyjamas dear reader, tartan pyjamas non the less! The truth is that I woke up with a huge headache so I've just been bumbling around this morning and not attempting anything too energetic. I've had this recurring headache for most of the week so I can only assume that it's wholly stress related. I actually can't wait for the Christmas break this year so I can just spend the 2 weeks at home with my children.
Speaking of my kids, hello to Abigail if you're reading, we went out for dinner last night and she said she skim reads my blog most days but it's not got enough appeal for 12 year olds so just for you Abigail "teen angst, hunger games, mocking jay oh my life is so bad I could cry and everyone hates the world and I hate the world and no there's nothing wrong with me" There you go, that should appeal to you and any other tweens or teens looking in.
The truth is that I really don't write my blog for anyone but me, it's just kind of an accident that 15,000+ people a month happen to read it, I know it's helped lots of people in similar situations to mine over the years though because I get the emails and the comments and I don't intend to stop writing any time soon, freedom of speech is probably the most important civil liberty we all possess whether that be speaking out about a personal situation or something political you feel must change, i'm actually so proud of Abigail being on the Youth council and I think she can run for a seat in the youth parliament next February, destined to be the next female prime-minister that one!
