Also, for those of you moderately observant of this page, you will notice I’ve changed the title. This blog has gone from being called ‘Deb down under’ to ‘Orange girl Deb’ and is now ‘The girl with the green scarf’.
The blog was originally set up to follow my year in Australia hence the opening title of deb down under. However when I moved back to England the title just seemed, at best irrelevant, at worst like a cheap porno so I changed that to orange girl deb as orange has been my signature colour throughout the last few years.
Now that I’m starting to diversify from people who remember my orange jeans and my orange dress (sometimes worn together), the title might seem to reflect my Essex roots and imply a passion for cheap fake tan. This isn’t the case either. Therefore I have decided to name the blog after my constant companion – my green scarf.
My mother brought this scarf for me as a present years ago and since then it has evolved into a socially acceptable comfort blanket that I will wear as often as possible especially when I feel I need a little extra confidence. All my friends recognise the green scarf and one of my a-level teachers never got the hang on my name so called me green scarf for the rest of the year.
So here’s to the new name – the girl with the green scarf. It’s not nearly as dramatic as the girl with the dragon tattoo thank goodness! But in honour of the new name I have changed the theme from orange to green. I hope you enjoy it!
