Now, I don't wish to set an expectation of receiving my witty repartee daily but.....
It's all a bit shiny and I'm brim full of enthusiasm.
There are challenges ahead and I've no doubt I'll use this space to vent and process and map my mind journey as much as my physical travels.
I should probably formally introduce myself - however I'm not really a formal person and I lean towards the less than conventional.
Durrrr - I can hear your eyes rolling - what conventional single mother would leave a well paid, secure career and jump off into great wide open?
I can feel a Tom Petty riff coming on!
Actually I know plenty who think about it - not so many who do it.
What makes me so different? A combination of factors that I have never really articulated before I realise.
I don't really think things through or properly consider the consequences of my actions - this is both a good and bad thing!
I love camping, I love travelling, I don't like being a corporate drone.
Weirdly, given the unpredictable nature of my venture(s) I'm a control freak.
Life is too short - that old chestnut eh! It really really is tho - I've seen and experienced too much pain and loss to ignore this cliche.
I'm a bit of an attention seeker.
Some days finding an alternate, holistic, organic and connected way forward feels like a matter of life and death.
Life should be about living, not existing, in excitement and love and sunshine even when it's raining.
I want to say something momentous - it's my first ever blog post on my VeeDubAdventures website and I want to make a good impression.
Unfortunately it's past 9pm on a Sunday night, my 7 year old is proffering a tummy ache as reason not to be asleep, the cat litter needs emptying and I am staring down the barrel of another week of disconnected corporate crap.
I have an escape plan.
It was in my head until last week when it made a bid for freedom.
It jumped up from the comfy day-dreamer chair in a corner of my brain, raced down the spiral staircase, jumped into my mouth and surfed to the tip of my tongue and. without care or concern, leapt out of my mouth to freedom!
Now, it's staring back at me and saying "Go on, I dare you.............."
