I’m in my thirties. I swear this is a good thing. People’s twenties are so full of panic about getting big grown up things done on time; their thirties are much more laidback and accepting. I say so and this is my blog so it must be true.
I live with my lovely boyfriend, Steve. He is a tall, skinny, ginger geek. Swoon.
I write, web edit and design for voluntary, charity and community groups. This does not make me a Good Person as such, but it sounds really cool when I tell people.
Previous cool jobs include cinema projection and ghostwriting online articles about how to pick up chicks. Also, working in countless video shops.
I’ve had some less cool jobs, too, but we won’t dwell on those.
I have one sister, one brother-in-law, three stepsisters, one stepbrother and a teeny tiny little nephew with a mop of curly hair.
I never know where to say I come from because my family moved around a lot; I’ve been in Aberdeen since 1995, though, so I guess that makes it home.
I like hunting for vintage treasures, implying I’m more crafty than I am, going to the cinema, reading just about anything, kittens, having conversation piece messy curly hair, getting surprises through the post and brightly coloured flowers.
I also like garlic and mushrooms.
The only books I’ve ever given up on are The Fellowship of the Ring, A Room With a View and Twilight.
I can rant for hours about Twilight. Don’t give me the opportunity.
Films I do like include Last Night, Singin’ in the Rain, When Harry Met Sally and Mean Girls.
I can keep a secret but it pains me not to go around telling people that I’m doing so.
