I am Kate and this is my “About Me” page. I even got naked for it. Well, why not? Live whilst you can and if it is good enough for the Women’s Institute, it has to be good enough for me.
I am a woman in my forties which means that my life experiences can be summarised as …
Being conceived as a result of the very swinging Sixties.
Relishing school milk in the pre-Thatcher Seventies.
Going “ra-ra” in the Eighties
Learning how to be naughty in the noughties.
Becoming a mother as the Millennium showed up and completing my family of 3 in that same decade.
You find me in 2012 so I guess it is the pre-teen year and I am starting all over again in a middle-aged quest to rediscover my groove and to reignite my va-va voom.
Here is the Good …
I am highly educated.
I enjoy working hard and reaching targets.
I have supported charities in a variety of ways since the age of 21.
I am a writer with the ability to engage a variety of audiences.
I have always wanted to change the world and make it a better place. To this end, I am passionate about good causes and about seeing women and mums get a fairer deal in society at home and abroad.
Here is the Bad ….
I can be moody.
I have not looked after myself as well as I should have.
I bite my nails which I acknowledge is a filthy habit.
I am an inadequate (though loving) mother
I rather like a rum from time to time.
Here is the Ugly …
Today is a day to be positive so there is no ugly unless you count the picture above in which case you should jolly well admire me for posting it.
They say end on a high so here are the rather sensational bits …
I have walked on fire
I have taken my clothes off for a boudoir photography session
I have kicked ass
I can promote just about anything effectively
I have built up a range of skills and experiences that make me very worthy of hiring for all manner of things. You can read more about them here https://kateonthinice.wordpress.com/2012/01/13/what-are-my-skills-and-experiences/
You now have three choices
1. You can read and enjoy an open, honest and non sugar-coated blog. You can follow me on Twitter @kateonthinice
2. You can join myself and some other Groovy Mums on our mission to make our lives fun and fulfilling by clicking here https://kateonthinice.wordpress.com/how-to-be-a-groovy-mum/
3. You can contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org and offer me money to do some rather exciting things for you which have absolutely nothing to do with my state of undress in the picture.
I am Kate and I am on thin ice but very soon I will be dancing on the same in a sparkly frock. Who is going to give me a lift?
