My Take on #FPQ


How much have you and your priorities changed over the past twenty years? If you’re on the younger side, answer from the perspective of the past ten years or even five years.

Twenty years ago my children were the most important people in my life. My son was five and my daughter ten. If they needed anything, I would be there. It hasn’t changed from then till now.

Although I have more spare time to do what I love – writing could only ever be a hobby when they were young. There weren’t enough hours in the day to do both. Now my evenings are my own. I can blog, write, and drink coffee without anything to interrupt me.

Although today, after work, my daughter still managed to have me running round in the car to get my granddaughter a slide and swing set. Second hand, but that doesn’t matter. She does have an excuse – her boyfriend has Covid, mild but that means she has to self isolate. She always seems to choose the places where it is in the back end of nowhere.

My son is writing a web comic – I’m typing the words and he is drawing the pictures. He will often ask for help on publication day in return for a cup of coffee. I would do anything for my kids even though they are adults.

I am a fifty something mother of two grown up children, and one beautiful grandchild. I have been married for nearly thirty-four years. My first book was published ten years ago. I wrote my book Sticks and Stones because of my experience of being bullied at school.

  1. Actually, it was almost exactly 20 years ago, in September, that I changed my priority set radically from what it had been. Since then, however, over this past 20 years, I have chosen to prioritize the work of following my conscience where it seems to lead me, rather than the path I was set upon as a young engineering student.
