Let’s get the formalities out of the way.
Welcome to my blog! I’m fondly known as Pinx and so will introduce myself as such. My life is in no way interesting or extraordinary, probably not the best introduction, but I’m honest, if nothing else.
I’m a single mum of two teenage girls, always have been and know of nothing else. Not for the want of trying, let’s lay that on the table for all to see on day one!
My life is filled with teenage angst and drama, and the girls bring their own little bag of problems into my life too.
I tell everyone I meet I’m cool calm and collected, when the truth of the matter is, I’m clumsy, forgetful and I’m a dab hand at looking like I’m dealing with life’s hurdles, when in reality, I am majorly failing at life!
So why have I started this blog?
I’m not even sure of that answer myself yet… I write. I write, a lot. Now, these “writings,” they’re not Shakespeare or Jane Austin-esque, they’re unique ramblings in reaction to something I haven’t figured out how to deal with. Some are run of the mill diary type entries, others could be described as voices in my head that need to get out of there… Heck, some of them are full blown imaginary conversations I want to have, or should have had with people in my everyday life.
So this platform is somewhere for me to turn those words into reality.
Years ago, I started writing a book. It was a good book, in my eyes, about a past life I’ve long forgotten, or at least, moved away from and that book, can you guess where it is? It’s screwed up in the back of a wardrobe somewhere collecting dust. It’s not even in the 99p bucket in a service station. I never even gave the poor thing a chance. So, before I’m 40 (and it’s looming, fast) I figured I’d give my random scrolls an audience.
So be prepared for mundane run of the mill diary entries, to epiphany moments where I actually think I’ve figure this world out. Though mostly, it will probably consist of my constant rage that I am the only person who knows how to change a toilet roll and how irritating internet dating can be.
I’m hoping, above all, I may even find that I am not alone in this Forever battle we call life. That maybe, I’m not actually failing, but that I’m doing, okay.
So, for a first entry, I hope I’ve not scared you off. That I’ve not sent you clicking for that close button. I’m hoping, you too just want to know that life does suck, but that everyone else thinks it sucks too….
