Cheers to the @celticfcfoundation   for the opportunity to join them and take part in the sleep out last night in aid of the foundations Christmas Appeal which is supporting families and individuals living in shocking circumstances. The organisation of the event was amazing, the team spirit shown from every participant was so positive and uplifting. The event itself was humbling as fuck. I kept thinking I’ve got thermal clothing. Not all homeless people do. I’ve got bathroom access any time I want. Not all homeless people do. I’ve got a sleeping bag, blankets and a pillow. Not all homeless people do. I’ve got people around me keeping me going, keeping me safe. Not all homeless people do. I’ve got nothing to be scared or worried about tonight. Most homeless people do. We can pat our backs and say well done for sleeping ‘rough’ (use that term loosely) but imagine doing that every night without any of the security and comforts I just mentioned. The physical and mental toll that must take on a person has to be devastating. It’s got me thinking about how grateful I am for my circumstances in life and what else we can all do because nobody deserves to live like that✨

Keep it going!! Tonight I’m doing the sleep out organised by the @celticfcfoundation   I’m looking forward to raising awareness around homelessness and poverty in our local community as well as raising money to contribute in helping those people affected by these issues this Christmas. I get to go home after it so I know how fucking lucky I am and I’m under no illusion that this won’t really be like what being homeless feels like, one night outside - but it’s a campaign to give back and that’s what I’m in support of, just doing what you can when you can to help out. Whatever you’re doing, hope yous all have a brilliant weekend folks✨

@glasglowgirlsclub   invited me to be the ‘November Glowgetter’ so there’s a wee interview on the GGC blog and I hope you get a chance to have a wee read. One of the questions was ‘what’s the dream?’ so I shared that and my response to ‘why Yer Awrite merch?’ above because for me, both are so easy to answer. SWIPE to read. There’s no big plans of becoming rich and wiping my arse with a hunner pound notes, there’s no desire to ‘get famous’ and get my pics taken all the time (I mean can you imagine an introverted, anxious, self conscious girl being papped? That camera would get smashed and launched - in a very smiley upbeat positive way of course!) But honestly it will always be about trying to help someone who needs it. We’re in this together and I’ve said that before but it’s because it’s true✨..... Also there’s a typo in the text which I could’ve deleted but I’m not perfect and I’m not trying to be so fuck it haha!

Collaborating with @glasglowgirlsclub   has been nothing short of fucking amazing. @pinktartandolly   is such an inspiring, kind girl (and soon to be hot maw by the way!) she’s constantly encouraging and lifting others and it’s just incredible to be around people like that to be honest with you. To be writing this afternoon that the @yer_awrite   merch collaboration with the GGC is now available on their online shop is unbelievable. Un-fucking-believable. It’s something I’m really chuffed to bits about, wee proud moment. Go get yersel involved, I’m excited to see this wee pink haired doll cutting aboot Glasgow (and beyond!) she’s a wee belter! Collaboration over competition all day long - happy merch day GGC!!! www.glasglowgirlsclub.com

Some real talk this morning. Losing yer dad at 22 in its simplest terms is pure shite. That has been my rock bottom in life so far. I couldn’t understand how life could just ‘go on’ after that and I didn’t want it to, not because I was feeling suicidal - I wasn’t, but because I just couldn’t get my head around how I’d literally ever stop crying, ever cope with him not being there or numb the heart breaking pain I felt inside daily. Getting up and out of bed was fucking hard work but I learned that hard work would be what kept me going. Repeatedly having to tell people that knew me what had happened when I met them, was fucking soul destroying each time but it made me resilient. Watching my mum and brother go through their grief was crushing because I couldn’t take it away but it gave me perseverance to support them on the days they needed it like they did for me on the days I needed them. Showing kindness and love to the people in my life since then is a massive priority because endurance is a lesson in itself and when you’ve endured the pain of grief and lived a bunch of nightmares about all the things you wish you’d said to or done with that person you lost, you sure as shit don’t want to continue feeding the regret you feel, so you make sure you put in the effort with other people that you care about. Rock bottom taught me I’m strong AF, even at my weakest✨ . I don’t know who originally said this quote so if you do let me know and acknowledge them properly, ta.

The weather in Glasgow is often shite. It’s usually always raining and some days it feels like when you’re no getting slapped with rain drops and battered by big neddy hail stones you’re getting skelped with pies. Big ‘life is causing it the noo’ pies that bounce aff yer heid and threaten to knock you over. Getting pied is a bastard. Dumped, rejected, left out, sacked, patched - all other words for pied. All more or less leading to the same feelings of embarrassment, sadness, anger, frustration, confusion etc. All normal feelings and reactions that most people experience in life at some time or other. If you’ve just recently been pied, had a set back of some kind then don’t panic. You’ll feel shit for a wee bit but then you’ll feel fine again and you’ll be glad you got pied cause something better will come along, it always does. So don’t let that pie be keeping you down for long it’s not worth it. Side note - someone called me a pie recently and I remembered how much I liked that word which might explain why I’ve written it far too many times in this post but I’m not sorry, pie pie pie ✨ Also go share the custard post, people huv tae know✨

So many people have been ridiculously kind to me lately and have said some down right heart warming things and I appreciate every single lovely word honestly I do, doesn’t make receiving a compliment any easier though wtf?! . Things I fucking can’t stand but find easier to take than a compliment... . a cuddle from a stranger - like why are you touching me? we don’t know each other. I’m not touching you. I’m just gona stand here still like a tree and unintentionally make this awkward AF. . someone forcing you to clap their dug. I don’t care if he doesny bite Janet, get him to fuck I don’t want to touch him (so sorry wee dug, it’s nothing personal) . being held up by the granny gang in M+S that walk at a reasonable pace until they reach the front door and then just stop to talk, barricading you in, hypnotising you with Avon fumes and forcing you to listen to granny patter. I’m no anti-granny, just when I’m at the exit it’s usually cause I want oot! . A triceratops to the boob. I have a wee niece who gets carried away with the dinosaur play and likes to wait until I’m in my jammies with my bra aff before ramming a triceratops horn into me. . Listening to someone crunch crisps next to me. Just naw. . Point is as much as all of the above drive me to despair, I’d still take them over a compliment any day. Why the fuck is that? Why do we struggle to accept people have nice things to say to us? Because if you’re like me you’re probably dishing out compliments to others all day long so why is it so hard to be on the receiving end? I’m awkward AF face to face, if someone’s like “Kat I like your hair” or “Kat that was brilliant” I’ll respond with some fucking weird non related comment that makes me look like a right arsehole and it cannae be helped and I’ll probably never change, but I’ll work on it✨

I’ve had this wee image for a while and I thought it was kinda fitting for this morning. See if you were hanging aboot yesterday you’d have seen me bombard my stories and plug my merch launch nearly aw day in some shape or form and you might’ve been thinking ‘look at Kat she’s doing awrite, must be having a rare wee time tae hersel, happy days’ or you might’ve been thinking ‘fuck off kat, yer merch is shite and so’s yer patter’ and you know whit, either way I’m fine with both those opinions truly, but it’s a good time to dip into the truth jar and be honest. Aye yesterday was fucking brilliant, the support was unbelievable and I was on a high for about 70% of the day, buzzing. The other 30% I was a fucking riot, full of self doubt and feeling self conscious about putting myself out there because I’ve never been comfortable with that, I don’t cope well with attention and I feel awkward, anxiety creeps in. Now I’m no telling you this so you’ll break oot the tiny violins and tell me I’m brilliant naw, I know I’m brilliant (I’m kidding by the way) I’m telling you cause you don’t need the bullshit, you need to know that when you’re feeling or thinking negatively you’re no alone. It happens to us aw but we cannae let it get the better of us. We cannae let it take over and that’s easier said than done but every time yesterday I nearly crumbled under the pressure I was putting on myself by the way, I acknowledged it and then thought of 5 positive things about what and why I’m doing this and what it means to me and it really helped calm me the fuck doon! It’s good to be honest with each other cause no ones sitting pretty with everything in their life falling into place, without a care in the world, absolutely no one. We’ve all got our truth but we make a choice about wether to share it or not and that’s the difference✨

Today my wee ‘wear yer heart on yer sleeve’ merch went on sale (link in bio - aye I am ashamedly getting another plug in there) but the response has been amazing, like tear to a glass eye heart warming support and all that jazz and quite a few sales have been made too which is brilliant because a percentage of each goes to Chris’s House Charity so I’m thrilled to bits. If you did get yersel a wee item today or are planning to in future, make sure you show me using #deckedootinyerawritegear   cause I’m a nosey git and I want to see how you’re styling it 😂 also if you read above you could win a wee free piece of merch so just get in about it. Massive THANK YOU for all the support in anything I’m doing, it doesn’t go unnoticed and I heavy like aw you’s too so cheers folks!✨

Aw that’s right people, you can now stick me oan yer message list because that’s the wee (basic AF) online ‘shop’ went live today and I am shitting myself because there’ll more than likely be teething problems that send me aff my heid but I’m also excited because see this time a year ago when life was repeatedly giving out deedy’s to me, I’d have never envisioned this wee moment, it just wouldn’t have felt like a possibility back then so I’m enjoying it for what it is. It’s a starting point, cause I’ve got big fuck off yellow dreams ye know haha! Anyway the shop is live, the merch looks great thanks to the ridiculously gorgeous @katelycgilmour   and cool AF @coachgxz   and talented @_emerald_photography_   If you want to spread awareness, help me contribute to @chriss.house   and look dynamite in the process then get yersel shopping and wear yer heart on yer sleeve. Online shopping is the best because you can sit in yer pyjamas browsing and buying with zero judgement from other shoppers on your outfit. Happy days and happy Sunday folks - link in bio - www.yerawrite.com ✨

Keep the heid teabags, I was gona say they should be a real thing but I actually think they are, they just don’t say that on them. In my hoose growing up a cuppa tea solved everything, my mum is tea daft and now because of her I’m exactly the same. Any kind of news wether it be sad, happy, confusing, exciting, miserable - whatever it is, the answer before you try to deal with it is always ‘kettle on, tea oot’. The roof could physically blow aff my hoose and aw you’d hear would be the click of the kettle. The best part aboot it though is the unplanned reaction time it gives you. Waiting for that kettle to boil gives you opportunities to consider rational responses to all types of news and stops you from being reactive which sometimes is a good thing, in fact it’s a god send. Life is hard and people can be difficult so just stick the kettle on and take some time before you lose yer shit and react in a way that you can’t take back. Wee tetleys (aye I’m that posh) in a cup, hot water in about it, bit of soya milk (me and cows milk fell oot year’s ago) and a wee stir. Take a sip and keep the heid. Also know that that tea bag has been taken oot before milks been added, I’m no a teabag floating in milk kinda girl, awww that would gimme the boke. Anyway it’s Friday, relax and drink yer tea✨
