Somebody that I used to know

A lot has changed over the years, I’m nothing like the person I once was, in fact if I met my younger self now I probably wouldn’t like her. She was the kind of girl that would spend all nighters in a bar, drinking, dancing badly and generally being a wally. I was a giddy and carefree girl who didn’t know where she was going in life, I changed my mind at the drop of a hat and I was completely indecisive.

Nowadays my idea of the perfect evening doesn’t involve rolling in at 9am and grabbing a fresh pair of clothes before heading out to work.

I’d much rather kick back and relax with the Mr, maybe if we’re feeling fruity we’ll crack open a bottle of wine. It has only recently struck me that although it does not feel like it, I’ve actually grown up. I still feel like it was only yesterday that I was the awkward girl that was ruled by hormones and giggled at my crushes. Now I am settled, I have my little family, I have the Mr whom I love dearly and I could not be happier. I never thought I would grow up but slowly it has snuck up on me like a skillfullninja…I’m a fully fledged adult
