A polaroid self portrait

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.  
A selfie.  
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.
