Day 176 - Tuesday 24th June

"The Good, The Bad and The Ugly"

Show me your 3 sides!

I like this prompt.
Good - what am I good at? Sometimes it is easier to come up with things that I am not good at! I hope I am a good mother (with a caveat listed under Bad) and a good friend to those around me. I am good at talking - just ask anybody!!! I am good at persevering with something once I have decided to do something. I am good at my job. I am good at nagging (just ask my husband) and spending money (my work colleagues just reminded of that for daily trips to Hobbycraft!)

Bad - I have a bad, bad temper which seems to be getting worse as I get older. I can just erupt over something very minor. I always thought people mellowed with age, but this is not the case with me. I think this is the one aspect when I would say I am not a good mother as I can lose my temper very easily. I would never hurt Zoe but sometimes I feel like I am shouting at her all the time. I am quite impatient and if I want something, I normally want it now!

Ugly - I consider myself to be ugly and this is not fishing for compliments! I have very low self esteem about my looks and I know beauty is only skin deep and that hopefully I have other attributes that are far more important than looks, but I would love to be taller, thinner and pretty. I can make myself thinner (well try!) but there isn't much hope for the other 2! Having said all that I don't dwell on my looks. I am who I am and if people don't accept me for that, then that is their loss!
