In comparison with some of the other assignments that I’ve tackled for Blogtober, this one seemed pretty simple.
This photo was taken more than 20 years ago for my passport.
It was taken just before I went to live in France. I can’t tell you how much my life changed during that time.
I learned to function as an adult – opening a bank account without a signatory, renting a flat, earning a monthly salary, organising utilities. Everything, in short, that a grownup should be able to do.
In all honesty, though, I was still a child…but that time was the making of me.
I miss the freedom I had then but I’m glad I’m not the single minded young woman who never asked for help anymore.
I like being married to my best friend and most ardent supporter. I sometimes think that I was braver back then, but I wasn’t – I was just bluffing all the time.
