Mum of two blogs her teenage diary in 20th anniversary tribute

Hi my name is Lucy. I live in London and I’m a Mum of Two.

It’s 20 years since my 16th birthday and to mark the occasion I have decided to blog a year of my teenage diary. It’s a heartfelt tribute to my innocent youth. At 16 I was an ingenue and a hopeless romantic – I was always falling in love and put a great deal of time and effort into being in love. I loved with abandon, in great quantities and with huge generosity.

But it was always unrequited and boyfriends persistently eluded me.

I kept myself busy writing in my diary and writing up homework. The universe rewarded me with good grades (and a happy ending on the last day of school – as captured in this blog) and the diary that I turned to so diligently, now gives an authentic and often humorous account of one teenage girl’s attempts to find true love and her place in the world.
