I must confess…something I should not have done but did anyway
I must confess that I did something on Saturday that I would never normally do.
It may have been due to the influence of a couple of glasses of celebratory wine. And the cider afterwards…
I only remembered to take a photo of the cider – mainly so I could send to Nathan who was back home with the kids (I was being very mean!)
Or it may have been due to the effect of being in the company of three of my best friends.
They’ll kill me for posting this photo but it captures them perfectly – love you all to bits!
But I found myself doing what I have never done before – waiting in line for a photo and autograph opportunity with a celebrity.
As I’ve shared before, I don’t do this sort of thing. I never have.
But for some reason on Saturday, I did.
And I was rewarded with a few photos and autographs from two of my all-time favourite tennis stars – Goran Ivanesevic and Mark Philippoussis (who both actually feature in my lame claims to fame post above).
Now my friends think I hogged the shot – what do you think? I just think I happened to be in the right place at the right time…
I’m not sure whether I’ll ever do it again, but the feeling of exhilaration and the euphoria that followed was amazing. We’ve been visiting the Sydney International for nearly 20 years now and this year’s visit will definitely be among the most memorable for many years to come!
Now onto my REAL confession of the week – something that I should not have done but went ahead and did anyway.
I could have gone with many examples here. But I went with one that has been on my mind lately as I have been playing a little too fast and loose with this aspect of my life. You can find out more by checking out my vlog below:
Why the vlog? Well in last week’s confession about my goals for 2016 I mentioned that I wanted to attract 1000 followers on each social media platform. YouTube has only ever been a platform I have flirted with from time to time but my confession posts are the perfect fodder for video and I would like to improve my video skills.
So from now on, I Must Confess will be open to vlogs and video as well. And will more often than not feature a filmed confession of some kind from yours truly.
So if you want to find out more, check this next video which introduces what my vision is for #imustconfess moving into 2016.
So, in a nutshell (and if you were too lazy to watch my very brief 2 minute long video!) there are a number of ways to participate in #imustconfess this year.
- The Monday #imustconfess linkup for bloggers to link up their confessions and for non-bloggers to comment with their own.
- The I Must Confess Facebook group, where anyone can join in and add their confessions all week long.
- MyHomeTruthsBlog YouTube channel which holds all the #imustconfess vlogs and where you are welcome to comment, subscribe and link to your own video content.
