Ok, here it goes Very Happy

My name is Nikki, I am 34 and a single mum of 2 daughters.
I am proud to be a slice in the loaf Very Happy

I live in Scotland, a small town on the coast called Arbroath. Maybe some of you have heard of "Arbroath Smokies"?  yea, they make those here.
Although I live in Scotland, I am originally from Wales... a small town, on the coast (but on the other side, lol) called Aberystwyth. Smile

Talents... well I am not sure what they might be yet.
I dabble in a lot of things, mostly craft.  
I used to draw/paint, but my art teacher at school gave me 1 bad grade for a design project and it brought down my overall grade, which meant I just missed out on what I needed to go to Art school...I haven't really done much since - well and truly lost my mojo!
Now I mostly crochet, make beaded jewellery, handmade cards etc.
Would like to get back into the drawing/painting, but lacking confidence - I just don't think I am good enough (that pretty much goes for everything to be honest)

I don't really have any musical talent (but hey I would say that)
Used to sing in the choir, mum kept telling me to shut up when I was younger...so no clue if I can sing and she was just fed up of me doing it all the time, or if it was cause I was bad at it. I do love singing though, and do sing along to my spotify playlists.  My kids say I am good, but they also say I am not fat...and I know thats a lie. Razz

So, why did I want to be a slice in the loaf you may be thinking....

Aside from the fact I may have a crush on Dave, I need some positivity in my life and you lot are awesome. Very Happy

I need to lose weight and improve my fitness.
I need to find work.
I need to improve on my self-confidence and my self-esteem (not sure there is a huge difference there) - when I left my relationship of 10 years he told me "you will never find someone as good as me"
It hurt.
One sentence, 4 and a half years ago... and I still remember it word for word.  On bad days, I wonder if he was right - I haven't had another relationship since.

Woah...this is getting a bit dark, pulling it back from there. Very Happy
So yea, I am basically here cause you are a bunch of awesome, positive and motivational people and I wanna be like that Very Happy
I hope thats okay with you guys?  I am more than happy to listen/watch and comment on stuff Smile

I did say I was bad at intro's Very Happy

Hope you all are having a good Saturday
Take care, and don't forget to be awesome (Thanks Hank and John!)

Well Right away: You'Re awesome, and you should know that. The person saying a sentence like that will never be the good part in a relationship, so i don't think you made the worse deal with leavong him.
Stay positive!

Yeah. I'm gettng cheesy, but this actually is how i try to lead my life. No matter how much I'm down at times Smile

People who say such emotionally abusive/manipulative things are not good at all.
