5 Facts About Me

I've been struggling today with blogger's block and although I wanted to join in with Prose for Thought the words didn't come. Instead I decided to share 5 facts about me that you may not know.

  • I learned to touch-type in college when training to be a secretary. At the time I never realised how useful a skill this would turn out to be. These days using the computer every day I know it's one of the best things I could've learned. 

  • My natural hair colour is a browny-blonde and I hate it. Around 5 years ago I decided go for a red hair dye and found the colour my hair was always supposed to be. I love my hair colour these days, and the fact that it is naturally wavy.

  • I worry constantly. I worry about my boys and if they've had a fall at school. I worry about the future prospects for my children. I worry about the Hubby when he drives down to London. I worry that I'm not a good enough mum to my boys. I was a born worrier!

  • I'd love to be better with make-up but I don't want to put the effort in. My morning make-up routine consists of moisturiser, highlighter and mascara. That's it. I only added the highlighter and mascara recently after reading a blog post about a ten-minute make-up routine. If it wasn't for that I'd wear none at all!

  • I dream big - until self-doubt hits. When I first started writing a novel I dreamed of having a best-seller. Recently I began thinking I could be a fabulous pro-blogger like Vicki (Honest Mum), Katie (Pouting in Heels) or Zaz (Mama and More). Then reality hits and I realise I'm just little old me and could never be fabulous. However, I do still dream big. I think we all need a BIG goal in life to keep us going.

I've said recently that positivity is key and I really believe that. Worrying about everything doesn't make it better and I'm working on that. My make-up routine is better than it used to be, and I feel better for it. 

And as for the dreaming, well if I keep at it and try then who knows what will happen in the future.

So tell me, what are some facts about you that I don't know?


  1. Hi, I have just found your blog for the first time so thought I would say hello. Your make up routine is very similar to mine (although I have never used highlighter). I too worry all the time and I am also an aspiring writer / artist (but haven't got very far!). Keep up the positivity and big dreams! The future is unknown to us all but we have to try. I look forward to reading more of your blog.

    1. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment and let me know you've just found my blog. It's always lovely to hear from new readers! Make-up has always been my downfall. Good luck with the writing, it is a never ending love/chore. The block is always a risk! Thanks again for stopping by. xx

  2. "Little old you" can achieve those big dreams! I believe in you.

  3. Oh Morgan, I loved this post and I'm so glad you had writers block! It's nice to read a little about the bloggers behind the blogs as it makes it easier to relate to them...And I can relate to some of what you have written.

    I wish I had learned to touch type as it would have been a major time saver, my brain is always half a page ahead of what I'm typing!

    A touch of make up looks nicer than too much.

    And I think we should all dream big. Dreaming helps us to focus and motivate us. We may not always achieve our dreams, but if we stopped we'd never get the chance. Keep on dreaming as you just never know what the future holds.

    Thank you for sharing a little about yourself!

    1. Thank YOU Debbie. I agree it's always nice to learn about the people behind the blogs and I guess that's why I wrote this post. I will keep dreaming, you're right, you never know what the future will bring. xx

  4. Ah, I can relate to much of this! I do wear make up (although, not a lot!) but I am a born worrier and my hair has been 'assisted' for years :) I think we should all dream big, we might not get there, but we'll get further than we would have done with it x

    1. I like that term 'assisted' Sara, that's awesome. Think I might use that from now on. ;)

      You're right, we should all dream big, sometimes we might even get what we dream of.

      Thanks for stopping by. xx
