The joy of the inter webs is you can fully brand yourself any way you please and paint a fantabulous picture of an overachieving domestic goddess who never puts a foot wrong style wise, be it in home or attire, food wise, or parenting wise.
A perfect wife, an awesome friend, and frankly, your farts don’t even smell because computers haven’t advanced to Smellivision yet.
Let me tell you, I am a little bit like what you see, but mostly I’m like a revolting teenage boy.
I am so gross sometimes my habits even disgust myself.
I’m not always a good friend, and I’m often a distracted, cranky and terrible wife and mother.
I have loads of great clothes but tend to wear the same 5 things because I mostly live in suburban parks and supermarkets and I often accessorise with snot and cooties… or I’m in smelly gym gear as I’m endeavouring to work out the suburban angst in the spin room.
I do eat well for the most part, as I represent, but really I just take pictures of the good shit and figure if there’s no photographic evidence of the fish fingers and cheesy beans on toast then my culinary skills will never come into question. I actually enjoy eating down sometimes, there’s great comfort to be found in ghetto nosh.
I’m going to come clean today with 10 things (in no particular order) you previously did not know about me that will probably make you think I’m a little bit gross, tacky or an arsehole.
1. I’m bossy as all fuck
I’m ok with the word bossy, because I am bossy. I’ve always been bossy, and I’ve always been called bossy. Haven’t needed therapy for that particular chestnut thus far.
2. I bite the skin around my fingernails
I don’t even realise I’m doing most of the time, but other times it’s a very conscious thing. No finger is spared, however I pay particular attention to my right index finger which generally has no finger print, which would be awesome if I could rob a bank with a single digit.
3. I like getting my own way and am prone to sulking when I don’t.
What an arsehole, right? I can’t help it if my ideas are the better ones.
4. I offend people all the time.
Obviously I don’t mean to, but my big mouth has a tiny filter and words can fall out around the edges of it. Also, I’m big on thinking after I speak.
Maybe I’ll think before I speak when I’m a grown up. Something to look forward to.
5. I peed in public pools until only a couple of years ago.
Told you you’d hate me.
6. I have been known to park in a child friendly parking space when I don’t have the children with me.
Only did it twice, but I can’t guarantee I’d never do it again.
7. I like passing wind in the car with the kids in the back.
I owe them, man. It’s only fair.
8. After only one drink I swear like a drunken Irish sailor.
Seriously, more than every second word.
9. I’m anal about washing up the kitchen immediately after eating.
I hate waking up to a dirty kitchen.
10. I smacked both of my children yesterday evening.
They fought all day and I lost my cool.
I hate that about me too.
To be honest, I could probably rattle off another 10 without really having to think but I’d hate to give all of my foulness away in one post.
