My daughter, the rebel

We've sorted out Edens transport which will be a story for another day.
It's been a chaotic week, I've still been busy with Eden shopping for Uni, working and all the other stuff Mums have to do.
Karate and Cubs started again so several evenings a week are taken up.
We're away this weekend, Eden's dog sitting, I  haven't packed a thing yet!
My phone broke so I wasted a whole morning trying to find the cheapest one I could that would do what I needed it to.
In amongst all this Eden wanted me to go with her for a consultation for a tattoo. She's wanted one for a while and she's had the design all drawn out for ages.
The tattoo place wasn't very busy and said that they could do it straight away which shocked her a bit I think.
She ummed and ahhed a bit but she went for it.


She was really pleased with the result, I had to hold her hand whilst it was being done as the tattoo is right on the top of her spine where there are loads of nerve endings and she doesn't have any fat on her to cushion them.


She's got cream on it here so it looks a bit wet.
The symbols are Greek and mean things like "freedom, courage and peace".
She did tell me what they all meant but I can't remember. She took each triangular symbol and made her own design with them.
She's the first one in the family to get a tattoo, even Malc  who spent years in the Navy hasn't got one.
I like the fact that that she can wear her hair down and it can't be seen when it's not appropriate  but when she's out with mates or clubbing she can put her hair up and wear a lower backed top to show it off.
