The Anarchist Arises...


I was a bit of a rebel when I was young, nothing dangerous just more like I found it boring to stick to the rules, I love to push the boundaries, to test myself and nothing has changed.

It is an amazing thing to be older and wiser. I look at how I handle situations now and I am so much more rational but the me that was evident as a child is still there she has just grown up and possibly chooses 1 reaction over 3.

Back in the day all my reactions to negative times in my life were physical. I would say hideous things to someone if they annoyed me, damage property (that I owned.. I was not THAT bad), deliver a note I would regret or just act out in some other manner.

These days I channel that energy into going for a run, finding the clarity to structure a big change business wise OR if I am having a particularly craptastic week (and this is the bit that hasn't changed) cutting my hair into a bob, re doing my fringe, bleaching it a stupid colour or planning some new ink..

I had a bit of one of those the other week (Marcus was away, it was end if term so kids were emotional, work was busy and bills were on top of me) and the only thing that made me laugh was I caught up with one of my favourite peeps and she was in the same position just 7 days ahead of me and had already booked her haircut.. Kindred Spirits were shown to me once again...

So whilst my week has passed and all got better now the school holidays are kicking my butt and I am pinning divine tattoo images (just little ones)... and am having to hold back the scissors but I know that won't last because when the anarchist arises I just can't put her back in her box...

Are you just like your besties? What are you like when you have a case of the uglies? Tell me you still act out?

  1. Funny how u can be so connected with someone, even if you don't see them as often as you'd like.
    I got the smallest tattoo when I was 18, nothing to lavish. My hair was always the brunt of my emotions, you name it I've probably done it. I seldom fight with hubby, but building a house many moons ago had me storm off in my car & return back at his parents with my long locks converted to a pixie cut... Let's just say we've never argued since lol. Although he probably just shrug it off nowadays, he had to deal with me shaving my hair off 12mth prior to my wedding (obviously for charity)... He's thankful my hair grows quick! Lol
    Less like this now though, I've had the same hairstyle for 2yrs now, think that's a record! 😄 if I get restless now it's usually the house that gets the makeover or massive clean out!

  2. I head inwards rather than fight outwards. But I'm thinking you should come with me to FINALLY get that bloody tattoo I've been talking about for 20 years. Where shall we go? x

  3. Oh, thank you, you just reminded me of when, as a teenager, a guy I hardly knew called me baby and I eyeballed him and said, 'Don't call me baby, I'm not a fcuking infant.'
    Frustration is still one of my best motivators for action. So, what ink are you thinking?

  8. At the end of a busy day nothing beats snuggling up in bed under a cosy quilt, with a cup of tea in one hand, mag in the other and the love of my life sleeping by my side
