Today is not only Shrove Tuesday, in fact I don't see the big deal with what we call pancake day, why do people get so excited? Do they not realise that they can eat pancakes every day of the year if the so wish!
Anyway... As I said it's not only Shrove Tuesday, but it's the 100th International Women's Day! Which is far more exciting in my opinion, and what better way to celebrate on Cameos and Espadrilles but to have an Inspirational Women post.
My inspirational woman for the month is Kathy Lette, and i'm so lucky to have just been to a guest talk with her. She is an absolute hoot!
For those who don't know who Kathy is, she's a novelist, a mother of two, a journalist, a singer, a sitcom writer and a feminist. (However she doesn't like that word, she prefers to call feminists "The Clitterati.") Oh and she once turned down the chance of a date with George Clooney!!
Kathy wrote her first novel 'Puberty Blues' aged 18, while she was still living in Australia, and it was made into a film in 1982. Kathy's written an impressive 11 novels in the past 34 years along with everything else she's done in her career.
Kathy is fun and funny, successful and smart, and all in her own right. She's not afraid to say what's on her mind and to stand up for herself and women everywhere. It's International Women's Day and my Inspirational Woman is Kathy Lette.
Here's Kathy receiving her honorary degree from Southampton Solent University in 2009.
