Hi there, I’m Jo. Who am I? That’s simple, I’m an introvert trying to make her own world and
that of others just that tiny little bit more spectacular.
I would describe myself as a wannabe established writer, slightly lazy hard-worker, optimistic pessimist and obviously very contradictory. Or perhaps, I’m still getting to know myself.
I am a mother, I am a wife, I am a friend, I am a daughter and I am me.
Favourite quote: Tell the negativity committee that meets inside your head to sit down and shut up. (Learned Optimism.)
Goals in life:Be Happy and spread happiness to random strangers.
Purpose of Blog: Building memories on my path to baby bliss. Turning the bad memories of my miscarriage into cherished moments with my husband. Writing off my frustrations while trying to conceive, instead of working these frustrations out on my husband. Getting excited and trying to stay excited about the creation of a miracle of life.
Ten peculiar things about me:
I obsessively create lists and schedules, only to not follow them, but hey, I need them!
I love a cocktail, anything from a mojito, a daiquiri to a margarita. Mmmm delish.
I already have a name picked out for my future puppy, “Taxi”.
I often “fake” online shop; fill up my basket and then I’m out, only to regret a few purchases weren’t made afterwards when they are sold out.
My favourite flower is the white calla lily or a field of sun flowers (does a field count?)
I love waffles with fresh fruit.
I need to take one serious holiday a year, or I feel like I missed out on life. Traveling is knowledge and food for the soul.
I love typical sweet kids’ candy, the “kiddier” and unhealthier the better.
I used to have a nervous lisp when reading in front of many people.
I have super small feet which makes shoe shopping a royal B*****.
