My name is Tamara and I am / was a fiercely independent 47 year old. I am married and have a 3 year old little boy. I like to be in control of every aspect of my life. I love holidays, eating out, having fun and the nice things in life. Just re-reading that sentence makes me laugh, Oh how things change! I was a workaholic, not so much these days but I do really enjoyed my job, I have worked hard since I was 17 working with great athletes, some top celebrities and popstars and some that aren’t quite as great, and having fun while I’ve done it. Until 2 years ago I was Head of Events for a Publishing company in the mighty West Country. My life currently has a slightly slower pace, I am 47 after all and it doesn’t have so many glam parties to attend. As well as working hard, I played hard too – yes past tense I’m afraid but I’m sure those days will return. Please tell me they do return?! I’m sometimes too stubborn for my own good, I’ve always been self sufficient and am always right – well not so much now I’m married. I’d like to think I am a loyal and generous friend to my amazing friends and family. I’m by far perfect but if you want an honest opinion or to have some fun then I’m your girl. The past three years have been a whirlwind and I can safely say I have gone through every single emotion and I am about to share some of those with you. I am going to be brutally honest about how I feel, some areas you will agree with, others not so much but that’s fine. Hopefully you will find my posts entertaining enough to bring a smile to your face and heartfelt enough to maybe bring a tear to your eye.
