Trolled by my own breasts. This awesome tee from @bloodynorapam is meant to say ‘eliminate girl hate’, but as usual, my breasts make up their own decisions about my outfit. Anyone else have these problems? Btw- check out Bloody Nora Pam.

My maternal Grandmother and Grandfather on their wedding day.
I didn’t really know my Grandfather. He committed suicide when I was 12 years old. I only remember snap shots from that time; that was the first time I ever saw my dad cry. My mom was more stoic, or as she says “in denial, which I LIKE!” She said that she made peace “with it” very quickly because she felt if he was in pain—he wasn’t anymore. She never remarried but went on to have a successful career as a top legal librarian, had several modest homes, and in addition to working full time also traveled internationally. She also wrote poetry, painted, was a good piano player and a singer!
She was a devout Catholic but she would tell us the creepiest ghost stories when we stayed at her cabin on Whidbey as children. One was about a reincarnated demon who would inhabit the body of innocent people with pink eyes! 😂😂 Leave it to an Irish-German Catholic to bring out the shadow side of a young child’s mind.
I was not raised in the church but would attend Mass with her as a child. I remember the highlight was getting donuts and hot coco with spray can whipping cream after the service.
At my Grandfathers funeral I remember my Grandma leaning over and telling me that “everyone who is good goes to Heaven—even dogs!” I think there was some undercurrent of Catholic bullshit about the victims of suicide not getting a seat in Heaven—or some such crap.
She was definitely a person who loved people and in spite of her religion she was not in any way a bigot. Ever. Straight, gay, black or white—she had a diverse group of friends that she loved. She was quick with a joke, could be sarcastic and was known for stealing random glasses of wine at parties.
I don’t think of her often but when I do I realize I miss her. I would have liked my daughter to have known her. But I guess that’s what stories are for.

"Two cities were sacked, 80 000 Romans and their allies perished, & the island was lost to Rome. Moreover, all of this ruin was brought upon the Romans by a woman, a fact which in itself caused them the greatest shame... But the person that was chiefly instrumental in rousing the natives & persuading them to fight, the person who was thought worthy to be their leader & who directed the conduct of the entire war was Boudicca, a Briton woman of the royal family who possessed of greater intelligence than often belongs to a woman... In stature she was very tall, in appearance most terrifying, in the glance of her eye most fierce, & her voice was harsh, a great mass of the tawniest hair fell to her hips; around her neck was a large golden necklace; & she wore a tunic of diverse colour over which a mantel was fastened with a broach. This was her invariable attire." -Cassius Dio #greatdames #boudicca #celticwarrior #celtic #warriorqueen #queenoftheiceni #romanempire #cassiusdio #mightywomen #womenofhistory

If the horrific assault on Boudicca and her two daughters had been intended to break her, the Romans had grossly underestimated the warrior queen. Boudicca galvanised the Iceni and warriors from other tribes and led a bloody and vicious revolt against the Romans. They destroyed three cities including Londinium (modern London) and were estimated to have killed 70,000- 80,000 people. They almost defeated the Romans, with Nero considering withdrawing the Roman forces from Britain.
The Roman army finally defeated the Iceni in the Battle of Watling Street. Boudicca is believed to have poisoned herself to evade capture. It is not known what happened to her daughters. #greatdames #boudicca #boadecia #warriorqueen #celt #iceni #fiercemother #romanempire #battleofwatlingstreet #revenge #vengence #womenwhochangedtheworld #celtic #celticwarrior #women

Boudicca/ Boudica/ Boadecia/ Boadecia/ Buddug

Boudicca was the warrior queen of the Celtic Iceni tribe who lived in the 1st century AD. Boudicca's husband, Prasutagus, was king of the Iceni (present day Norfolk, Britain). Under Prasutagus, the Iceni had an alliance with the Romans, and it is believed that at this time the majority of coinage in Britain was Iceni rather than Roman. Upon Prasutagus' death in 60AD, he left his kingdom to the Romans and to his two daughters jointly who were believed to be around 12 at the time. Under the Romans, Briton kingdoms were meant to be left solely to Rome.
Roman retaliation was swift. Roman financiers called in all of their loans and Boudicca was publicly flogged and her two young daughters brutally raped in front of her. #greatdames #Boudicca #Boudica #Boadecia #Boadecia #Buddug #warriorqueen #celtichistory #celticwarrior #britishhistory #rome #romanoccupation #romanera #romanempire #revenge #vengence #mother #queen #motherdaughter #iceni #norfolk #bravewomen #warriorwoman #fiercemother #greatwomen #prasutagus #likeagirl #likeaqueen

It’s Boudica. I spent some time researching the clothes that women in Celtic tribes would wear during that time period. #greatdames #ragdoll #doll #boudica #boedicea #ancientcelts #celtic #handmade #ooak #clothdoll #history #greatwomenofhistory #girlpower #riotgrrrl #historynerd #warrior #warriorqueen

Yesterday I handed in my last ever assignment for my postgrad. To be honest, it’s been a really hard slog between working and parenting, particularly parenting a special needs child. When I started doing this I thought it might be an inspiration for my girls, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they were put off higher education for ever. Get your education when you are young, folks! #greatdames #postgrad #itsover #postgraduatestudent #momlife #mumlife #autism #earlychildhoodeducation #womenineducation #graduation #frodo #lotr #lordoftherings #university #matureagestudent

I’m finishing my postgrad in 34 days! Looking forward to finally making some stuff and using this account for what I created it for... exploring women from history and female positive crafting! How many times has the phrase ‘female positive crafting’ been uttered, I wonder? 🤣 #greatdames #nichemarket #feminism #craft #feministcrafts #postgradlife #gradstudent #fuckingbusy #somethingsgottagive #workingstudentmom #femalepositivecrafting #atleastimakemyselflaugh

Bye, bye Sydney. I’ve had an excellent time in this beautiful city and at the ECA National Conference. I really loved hearing about self-regulation in small children by Dr Stuart Shanker. Boy, has our society got it all wrong! #greatdames #eca #ecanationalconference2018 #ecanationalconference #earlychildhoodaustralia #selfregulation #drstuartshanker #earlychildhood #sydney #stem #earlychildhoodstem

I’m heading away from the kiddos for three nights to go to a conference in Sydney. I’ve never been away from them for so long, so I’ve taken some reading to keep me company. After listening to @thehistorychicks two part podcast about Catherine the Great, I’m desperate to learn more. It’s a fiction novel, but hopefully it doesn’t stray too far from the facts as the truth of her life was extraordinary enough! Just noticed the #Frida in the background! #greatdames #thewinterpalace #evastachniak #catherinethegreat #russia #empresscatherine #prussia #historicalfiction #fiction #womenofhistory #greatwomen #nastywoman #childfree
