Day 28 - Monday 28th January

“Here’s looking at you kid” - Casablanca

Who are you?

Firstly I am a mum to the most beautiful little girl in the world, Zoë. She is 2 years old and is the most precious thing to me. She has changed me as a person totally. Things that I used to think were important and really mattered no longer worry me. I hope I am a good mum and that we will always have a really good relationship. I hope will always be the best of friends.

Then I am a wife to possibly the best husband in the world – he is very caring, kind and generous and looks after Zoë and I very well. I am not sure that I am a particularly good wife. I can be short tempered and I know I nag a lot but I do try my best. He is my best friend and I wouldn’t change him in anyway! We have been together 10 years this year.

Then I am a daughter – to my mum, who I am not as close to as I should be. And to my dad who I didn’t see for 30 years but we are catching up slowly.

Then I am a more or less full time manager in my job. I know I am not a particularly good manager – this is because I am a control freak and like to do things myself – that way I know they are done properly. I think I am a fair manager and always like to work in a “give and take” environment. I like to have fun at work.

Then I am a friend. Again probably not the best friend in the world – I am hopeless at keeping in contact with distant friends but I like to think that I will always be there if any of my friends ever need me.

Then I am me!!! Just little old me!
