So what – I’m still a Rockstar!

by | Oct 9, 2017

I was a young 18-year-old when I met Mr Dreamy. Being a tad protected by strict Catholic parents, I was quite naïve and not very worldly. It wasn’t long until we were shacked up and I was knocked up. Now don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t change my gorgeous children for anything in the world, but settling down so young was probably not my best move.

As the years went on, I grew up – I had too. Being a young mum who also had to work to help support her family, bought with it a lot of new responsibilities, pressures and stress. Sure, there were many good and fun times, but growing up did something to me.

It made me realise that we didn’t have much in common. We were just in a rut, doing the same thing over and over and over. After a year of my hubby moving in and out, I made the hardest decision I’d made to date – to end it and move on. It wasn’t easy, but it was needed.

This time I moved out. With a few belongings packed into my car, my most significant release of emotions came as I was driving off, heading to my new rental house.

I slipped my P!nk CD into the player. Blasting the stereo in my little Tiida, I was soon singing at the top of my lungs and letting out all my emotions.

I guess I just lost my husband
I don’t know where he went
So I’m gonna drink my money
I’m not going to pay his rent (nope)
I got a brand new attitude
And I’m gonna wear it tonight
I wanna get in trouble
I wanna start a fight


Na na na na na na na, I wanna start a fight
Na na na na na na na, I wanna start a fight


So, so what?
I’m still a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don’t need you
And guess what
I’m having more fun
And now that we’re done
I’m going to show you tonight
I’m alright, I’m just fine
And you’re a tool
So, so what?
I am a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don’t want you tonight

Best therapy EVER!

I’m happy to say I moved on and recently married Mr Super McDreamy who will be my forever man. And now, at only 39, I have the most amazing 18 and 16-year-old children who make me super proud.
