This was a challenge for me.
I have been wanting to take a polaroid self portrait for ages now (years?)
but whenever I think of it I have every excuse under the sun - no time, too busy, bad hair day etc etc.
This morning, my little guy and I got home from walking Annabel to school,
and in between playing trains, having a tidy up
and mentally planning all I have to do today to get ready for a market tomorrow,
I realised that if every day is a busy/bad hair day, then I would never take the photo.
So before I could talk myself out of it, I put down the washing basket, grabbed the polaroid,
and here you have it.
Bad hair day and all.
Of course I asked myself why was I posting a very real (read un-glamorous) photo here?
And you know why?
Because life is short.
Life is real.
And this is me.
