A Nice Thing Has Happened

So, no big deal but I’m on The Drum’s 50 Under 30 Women in Digital list.
It IS a nice thing, but an even nicer thing is how nice all the people I’ve met in my life have been about it. My Art Foundation teacher (and major influence/rock during a weird time) said, “ALWAYS knew you’d turn up on something like this”, my copyfather did digital welling-up and my REAL father (sorry Chris) emailed, “I have the biggest smile on my face! You are just so wonderful.” And my mother?
“Who needs a f****** degree?!
I came third in the Junior Girls’ Diving – 1972.”
I have been trying not to happy cry all day at the wonderfully kind things people have said. Blub blub.
Thank you to everyone who has been part of my frankly LUDICROUS career so far – even if we hated each other, I probably worked harder in an effort to show you up. Sorry, and thanks.
