I am all about honesty…yaaaay honesty. I know we are supposed to all be socially adept and correct, but sometimes we just need to be told the truth.
I try to be as honest as I can with the young people I work with, and it has its benefits and downfalls. A benefit is that the teenagers I work with have no qualms about asking me about puberty, sex or relationships, they know I will give them an honest and sometimes brutal answer. A downfall is that they often aren’t ready to hear the truth as bluntly as I put it about the choices they have made in their short lives.
Today, thankfully, was a benefits day.
So in celebration, I have decided to just tell you 5 things that are true about me.
Last Halloween, I made P watch brutal horror films, which I love and he hates. As revenge, I then had to sit and watch a shark documentary with him. I managed it, but there was a lot of cushion-in-front-of-face action.
I am a little obsessed with tea-drinking-recepticles. I love a good mug. Whenever we go out, I am bound to see a good one that I want. I have so many favourites, that I couldn’t possibly pick one.
The fact is, we now have so many mugs that I have begun using them for other things….herb growing, pencil pots…
Our cupboard is actually overflowing and I can’t stop buying them……..
I have really low blood pressure and that means that my hands and feet are ALWAYS cold.
P sees it as a blessing really, when he is ill or needing an icepack, I just have to touch him.
I must say that I came to tea late in life. I was 21 before I realised how much I liked tea, before that in fact, I hated it. After some ‘Uni experimentation’ (read trying lots of different teas and nothing kinky) I discovered it wasn’t the tea I didn’t like. It was the cow juice. Since then I’ve tried any kind of tea, and normally I’m a huge fan, as long as the cows haven’t got there first!
Currently in our cupboards we have (in most drunk to least drunk order): Earl Grey, Chamomile, Chai, Peppermint, English Breakfast and PG Tips (labelled Builder Tea).
I love the satisfaction of growing my own herbs and salad leaves indoors, and just yesterday I planted some chillies. Very excited to see my little seedlings….
Yeah…I know….I need to get a life.
