Who are you? #Blogtober16

I am taking part in Blogtober16 and will be writing posts with various themes/prompts throughout October....

I think if you read my blog you know who I am. You can always read my About Me page......For those who don't read regularly I'm Kim, a 30 something year old mother from a small town in Northumberland called Ashington. I have two girls. Becky (14) and Ellie (9). I also live with my fella who's called Stu. Nice to meet you!

What did think when I read the prompt for today's post I did think of the song from the 90's by Meredith Brooks. Bitch. I am not a bitch....Well I try not to be but it does cover nearly everything that I am....

I am shy but chatty when I know somebody.
I am a worrier but I'm calm in a crisis.
Family means everything to me.
I hate being told what to do but I am quite bossy.
I love my little space on the internet.
I sing when I am alone but never in front of others (apart from my girls)
I am heading towards the big 4-0 but I am not afraid.
I worry far too much about what others think about me.
I am overweight but I am active and happy with it.
I keep myself to myself but I like to know all the gossip.
I am very happy with my life.
I am not a morning person but I am not a night owl either.
I have no patience for idiots but all the time in the world for my girls.
I hate cheese unless it is on a pizza or with pasta.
The sun instantly makes me happy and the rain makes me into such a grump.
I hate speaking on the phone but will spend hours emailing back and forth.
I don't read books now but read hundreds of blogs a week.
I actually hate talking about myself. I find myself so boring.

So there you go. That is a little about me.
