Growing some lady balls

[Check out my guest post "Six Months in a Leaky Tent" at The Mummy Autobiography thanks to Miss Pink. Should I read this out at Open Mic at DPCON12?]

I really need to start thinking about where this blog is going.

I'm at best an inconsistent blogger and though I like to be included in the mummy blogger world, it's not often I post about parenting.

Sometimes I get serious and sometimes I'll be having a chuckle to myself and hoping you're chuckling alongside me.  But mostly it's just me rambling with no one to stop me.

I do have passionate thoughts about some issues but my lack of knowledge (and confidence) stops me from following through.  I would love to know that I can hold an informed and enthusiastic discussion with a respected peer without thinking every minute "God I sound stupid.  Why can't I remember that word describing what's-his-name's role in some-or-other country?"  Or thoughts to that effect.

So I've decided to give myself the virtual slap-up-side-a-the-head and push myself out there.


Time to grow some Lady Balls.

Buying my ticket to DPCON12 is a start and I might even volunteer to go up on the open mic to really scare the shit out of myself (aaah, not a good vision there).  I've even left myself open and uncommitted after I land in Melbourne.  I'm catching the shuttle into the city that night and, unless I get lucky on the Pre-Conference Drinks Night waiting list, I'm free as a bird, Becci Bird that is (nyuck nyuck - Foghorn Leghorn style).

So what do you think?  At 45 shouldn't I just grow up and stop worrying I'm not good enough?

    1. Thankyou! You're an inspiration in the perfection stakes. Looking forward to seeing you (and the amazing extravaganza you've put together). Still not sure about the open mic thing though....
