First off I should explain my choice of domain name (is that what it is called?) and let you know that my main use of the internet is Googling stuff…oh and posting lovely pictures on Instagram that make my life look like a dream.

‘Jacqueline sometimes behaves in a giddy manner’ was a comment on my third year (year 9 if you were born after 2000) report. It was written about me by my then English Teacher, Mrs Welburn. This accolade has returned many, many times in my life. It kind of haunts me with deep shame and embarrassment, think that feeling you get when you bump into or Facebook stalk old classmates and realise they’re all real grown up’s…

I chose the word ‘accolade’ because if you Google it the meaning is as follows  –

An award or privilege granted as a special honour or as an acknowledgement of merit.

This is me, on a laptop, struggling between giddy and grown up.

P.S. I now have a level 3 pass in English plus merit certificate in my record of achievement (eat that Mrs W).

P.P.S. Feel free to head over to my Instagram, you’ll feel better about yourself!
