I posted a picture on my Instagram, about what kind of posts you would like to see. A lot of people wanted to hear some more life stories. So here I am, exposed, to tell you everything there is to know about me.
I was born on November 30th, 8 pounds and 7 ounces of gorgeousness! My two amazing parents and a brother and sister, I was a lucky girl. Still, to this day, my Mum claims I was a pleasant surprise and not an accident. This always makes me laugh, I sum it up to, they kept trying until they got perfection.
When my Mum went to the doctors, they actually thought she had a cyst. Low and behold it was just me causing my Mum havoc, which hasn’t changed to this day.
Not remembering much from when I was a baby, I do hear stories of what a menacing, daredevil child I was. Always climbing out my cot, balancing on the chest of drawers, shimmying down and army crawling butt first down the two flights of stairs. With just a nappy and bottle hanging from my mouth, waddling into the living room, while my family was watching TV, wondering how the hell I’d made it all that way. Wish I was as agile now.
Apparently, I wasn’t the easiest of children, but my sister confirms I was the most entertaining. From cutting my own fringe completely off, bitting into a glass, eating cigarettes thinking they were sweets and jumping into swimming pools at the age of one thinking I wouldn’t drown. I also struggled with the hokey cokey, not being able to tell my right from left. My sister and her friend Lindsey even writing L and R on my hands didn’t help. But just to reassure you, I am now the Queen of hokey cokey, because that’s what it’s all about.
The One With All The Singing
Jumping a few years, I started going to a choir at the age of 10 with a friend from school. Singing was and is something I have always been passionate about.
I had the most amazing times with that choir over the years. The early morning start every Sunday was not my favourite though, I think my Dad would also agree. Some memories I will never forget, as it gave me experiences that I would never have had the opportunity to do. From going to Germany and Barcelona, singing in Montserrat Abbey. Then also doing my first solo at the Birmingham Symphony Hall.
I have no idea where I got the confidence to do this when I was younger. The older I get, the more stage fright I seem to have, even with doing karaoke.
These days, I just seem to sing in my room, with my earphones in, my audience being my family now. Singing isn’t something I would pursue further, as it’s something that is very personal to me.
The One With The School Days
I wasn’t one for education, my attention span in school wasn’t the best. Really, I was only really interested in Music, for my singing and Food Technology for my eating. Also, I enjoyed the social aspect of school, but that was about it.
Education wasn’t really my thing, school reports were always good but must try harder. I just wasn’t the academic type, I especially found it hard to concentrate.
But I created some great memories in school, especially making some amazing friends.
I scraped through my GCSE’s but sadly I didn’t get into Sixth Form like I had planned. Instead, I ended up going to College to study Business for 3 years, as I couldn’t decide what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I ended up getting a First and National Diploma in Business, something that I probably haven’t used since getting them.
The One Where I Ended Part One
When I first started writing this post, I didn’t realise how much I wanted to write about. At this point, I have no idea how many parts this will turn into, but I really didn’t expect it to be this much.
The more I wrote, the more I realised I needed to add more. So I definitely needed to separate it out.
If you guys think of anything else you would like me to include, please let me know.
Part two is coming soon…
