Birthday Fish

I was born on a wednesday ( i think ) at around 9pm.

It was the 12th day of March 1975.

I have been addicted to drugs and alcohol and food and relationships (and cigarettes!)

I have been in and out of hospitals and 'centres' for people who need a little, help...

It is a long and really interesting story.

Tomorrow i turn 34 and i feel such a fool for telling you 2 things changed my life:

The first was becoming pregnant and becoming a Mother (it does that to most women!)

The second was finding out i could earn my living through 'craft'.

Dramatic and as corny as that all sounds - this is true. This is me. Happy Birthday to me x

I was 33 once. It was a long time ago.
If you feel old now how will you feel when you are ..ahem..57?
Believe me I feel as young now as I did then. Its just numbers.

Happy Birthday Kirsty! I turn 34 myself in June & have had a similar 'colourful' past which has shaped who I am today! Great to get to this age & be so much wiser, isn't it!? And yes, being a mum completely changes you. Have a lovely day & thankyou for cheering mine up so often x

Its funny how birthdays make us think a bit about the past. It sounds like you've had some rough times, but judging by your blog it also sounds like you've also had some amazing times too. Heres to the future and I guess what doesn't kill you can only make you stronger. xx

Happy birthday birthday fish (even if it was yesterday....)

You're not old, you're lovely! And as my gran always says, you're only as old as the man you feel.... :P

Hope you had a lovely day despite the rubbishness of food poisoning
