Who Won the Week (2 August 2020)

I do like Fandango’s Who Won the Week post, and like to join in with some quirky stories from my own newsfeeds. The idea is that we pick a “thing” (person, organisation, anything) who “won” the week. I often post with a heavy dose of tongue-in-cheek, but not today. This was genuinely a good idea.


Actually, I’m a bit late to this prompt this week, but I’m afraid I didn’t feel like writing much yesterday.

I read some posts, though, and one such post was by Farida Hakim. She has had the brilliant idea of posting weekly on the theme of “women who made it, or are making it, through adversity”.

What a good idea for a post, so I think that idea won the week this week.

Last week, Farida posted about a woman whose partner left her and their three young children, and how she has made a life for herself.

This week, she posted about the woman whose partner left them, when they found out she was pregnant.

You know, these stories are not about some superstar, telling us about all their adversities they overcame on their way to the top, but everyday stories of everyday people. Things which, sadly, happen all around us. These people are so “real”, they have blogs of their own, which Farida presumably follows.

I’m guessing that future posts will be along the same lines.

Farida is an Italian blogger but writes many of her posts (including these) in impeccable English. Links to her posts above.
