To share or not to share

Hi, I'm Kate. Nice to meet you.

Today is Shrove Tuesday. Pancake day. A day to stuff ourselves silly with the greatest snack ever created. Traditionally it was the day to use up rich foods before the fasting of Lent - now we live in such a world of excess that people have to BUY all the ingredients in order to make pancakes, and then they just give up something that probably counts as a luxury item anyway!

But that's not what my blog is about. In honesty, I have no idea what it'll be about - I'm pretty free with my opinions on Twitter and I imagine this will be more of the same. I might offend, I might insult - I don't mean it and I am happy to discuss it like grownups. If you just post comments slagging me off?? Well, you're just wasting my time and yours, grow up. (I might do a post on trolling at some point... or comments on the Daily Mail/Guardian news stories... both these things p*ss me off, but there might be too much swearing so i'll wait a bit!).

So get to the point you're all shouting!

The reason I started to blog today is because I had a flash of inspiration on the train home tonight. For Lent, I'm giving up.... laziness.

I have always wanted to blog but I haven't... because I'm lazy.

I want to get fit but I find it hard... because I'm lazy.

I want to learn to cook but I don't... because I'm lazy.

Anyway you get the point. So from tomorrow (today if you count this post!) I am going to do all those things I want to do. If someone asks me to do something or go somewhere, I'm not going to instinctively say no - although please don't ask me to do something stupid, that's just mean!

This is like one of those 'just say yes' campaigns where people say yes to everything they're offered - and that's how it might turn out. But i need to start on the small things first and maybe that will come later.

So back to me. I'm Kate, I'm 30 (oh yeah, that's another reason for this - life is going by far too fast) and I work in Corporate Communications. I look forward to getting to know you all.


  1. As a self-confessed 'lazy, lazy man' I look forward to your progress. Who knows, maybe you'll inspire me to get off the sofa too!
