Things I want to tell my children

Photo taken by me of my two  kids Madam & Mr

I'm not sure why but I have been thinking lately about things I want my kids to know.....not the usual I want you too know you were planned and not a lack of contraception and drunk night creation sort of thing....but real things...just like....

After 9pm at night and four bottles of red (or white) no one gives a hoot that you spent $100 on a bottle of please don't be that pretentious shit who gets drunk and quotes to all and sundry how much the bottle cost and who made it.  At that time of night as long as it's wine it's good.

You will get your heart broken.  There will be one person who hurts you more than anyone else and this will be the person you will be convinced you can't live without.  You can live without them, you do live without them.  You move on, grow up then hear that they are thirty something living with their parents still and you will be so happy they broke your heart.

Don't disregard blue cheese, or any cheese for that matter, that smells a little weird (unless it does because you left it in the fridge for months on end!).  Appreciate it and love is good believe me.

Lead don't follow.  Do what you believe in, wear what you believe be conscious in you life! Please don't follow, be a sheep or just do things, hang out with people because it is trendy.  No one will respect you and in hindsight you will not respect yourself.  An interesting existence is much better than a beige one.

Always have enough in the cupboard and fridge to make a platter.  Platters are everything.  A bottle of wine and a platter makes the world a better place and will make everyone that visits your home happier.  Olives, cheese, crackers, etc.......even if you are down to your last cent make sure you have it and it's decent quality.

Opposites attract.  It's fact.  You can be the exact polar opposite of someone and that person will become the person you laugh, cry, fight, make up, drink, party, live and cr?eate babies with.  If you look at someone and think 'I don't want to wake up without you' then no matter how different you are that person will be the love of your life.

Whether you love boys and/or girls,  save the world or something else, have babies or not, are tall/short curvy,teeny -  as long as you are happy and fabulous and nice to people.....the world will be better for having you in it.
