It’s time to regenerate

I’m going all geeky on you today with Doctor Who references.

Probably just another avoidance tactic on my part, but I’ve got this funny idea in my head that I just can’t get out.

I’ve decided it’s time for me to “regenerate”. And in the words of Doctor no.10 – “I don’t want to go!”

But I must. It will do me good. Heck, I might even have fun.

My slate has been wiped clean. The world is my oyster and there’s no reason why I shouldn’t slurp it down (with a squeeze of lemon).

After all …

I’m ginger …

I’m smart …

I’m funny …

I’m pretty handy in the kitchen …

As my friend Leanne pointed out, I know how to throw a mean party …

And I’ve done some pretty cool things in my magazine and digital career.

Not to mention the fact I make totally awesome babies. Including one who could give Amy Pond a run for  her money in the doppleganger department …

In fact, I really owed it to the world to pop a few more out. But that ship has sailed, so I’ll just have to content myself with adoring the two I have now.

So, when I think about it, I’m starting from a really good place.

Even if there are bits about the future that really scare me …

For example, I know it’s way too early to be thinking about it, but I haven’t been on a date in 23 years …

But I’ll work it out. And if I’m lucky they’ll really get me like this …


Wouldn’t that be nice?

Besides, after all …

“We all change. When you think about it, we’re all different people all through our lives. And that’s OK, that’s good, as long as you keep moving, as long as you remember all the people that you used to be.”

“A tear, Sarah Jane? No, don’t cry. While there’s life, there’s…”

Oh, I could go on … but I’d better stop. Very dull for the non-Whovians.

Any regeneration tips for me?

  1. Jot down three things each night that made you happy/you were grateful for that day – helps focus your mind on the positive. I saw a lovely little romcom on DVD recently -The Rebound starring Catherine Zeta Jones. Catherine’s marriage suddenly ends, she whisks the two kids from the suburbs to Manhattan, gets a job at a sports network and notices the kids’ 20-something manny is handy in more ways than one! You never know what’s around the corner… you just have to walk down the street.
