When you go through your life buying, wearing, using things,
you know full well that because those items are available in stores that there are
going to be other people buying, wearing, using them as well.
wearing the same clothes, shoes or jewellery I wear. That’s why I’ve bought so
much online. Ebay has provided me with a massive amount of kaftans, kimonos and
jewellery that no one else around me will have. So have my handy jewellery
look like a million other people.
same things you do?
our own thing unless we’re raised in a family where the family business matters.
How many families have we seen where everyone joins the police force, or become
creative, my brain is hyper overdrive creative and all of my life I have drawn,
written and made things to keep my brain active.
for the other. Everything that comes with those two things also come along for
the ride, such as fashion, styling and designing, not just jewellery and
clothing, but book covers and social media headers and pictures as well.
last 30 years, with their hair, their animals, their clothes, their furniture
and everything else. And for the last few years sister #2 has been throwing paint
on canvases. That’s her creativity. She calls it abstract, I call it paint on a canvas. And I certainly don’t call it art as
animals and kids can smear paint on something and call it art. Now I have my
sister-in-law copying and it makes me want to scream (see the above picture).
2001, because he threw a tantrum and stormed off because mummy didn’t sign his
little piece of paper. We only started seeing them in Feb of 2015 after sister #2 harassed mum into calling him. I found out that she was also making jewellery. Now when
we last saw them in 2001 I’d only made a few bits and pieces and only owned a few more.
Now I own over 2000 pieces and have my own company and now she’s making copper
wire jewellery. Of course she knew about my jewellery business because
sister #2 told her as I clearly hadn’t.
wants to write a book. Now, every time I write, I burn inside about her doing
that. Why in God’s name can’t I be the only one in this family to do that?
Sure, millions of people in the world write a book, and sure, millions of
people in the world make jewellery. But the world becomes very, very, very
small when it’s your family doing the exact same thing as you and you are no
longer the only individual in your family.
making experience and know stuff she doesn’t. I guess I can thank God I’ve got
10 years of novel writing and experience and know stuff she doesn’t. But now
I’m busting my butt trying to get all of these books out of my head as well as
look after mum and try and run a household, and all I’ve got in my head is her
wanting to write a God damn book.
I want something for myself in this bloody family of mine. Something to call my
own. I’m 10-15 years younger than them and just want something for myself.
one or two, but now I’m up to 22 and have more in my head that needs to be written, and I
still have not said anything. Why do I need to? But I knew whoever saw my Facebook style blog page (I’m friends with sister #2), that she would see it and it would possibly
get around. She’s known as someone who cannot keep shut her mouth and stay out
of other people’s business and then one day last year mum told me sister #1 knew. And I’m like, “why didn’t you tell me”, she’s like, “it slipped my
mind”. I’m like, “I never said anything to any of them how would they know?”
anything, as I wrote about here.
can’t even have that. I have thought of being a know it all (I do love putting
people in their place when it comes to them having a lack of knowledge) just to see the
looks on their faces as it would give me some sort of weird satisfaction over them. But that would be letting the cat out of the bag, so I’ll say nothing for now.
