About Me

My name is Julie, I'm 42 and married with a 10 year old son called Lewis. We live in Crewe, Cheshire in north-west England although I originally come from Brighton in Sussex which is on the south coast of England.
In October 2005 I was diagnosed with breast cancer so had to have a mastectomy, chemo and radiotherapy, I'm happy to say that I seem to be all ok again now but the experience has been life-changing in lots of ways for me.
I am trying to be really healthy now so I'm now vegetarian and try not to eat anything with sugar in at all. Before I was ill I was a diet coke drinking chocoholic but now I am totally reformed and just drink water or fresh juice and snack on healthy foods like nuts and fruit. I also only use natural cosmetics now.
Hope all this doesn't make me sound really loopy, I'm not too mad, promise!
I am a very keen sports fan, I travel to watch my hometown football (soccer) team Brighton every week and I also like cricket, formula 1 and basically most other sports.
My other main interests are photography - I take LOTS of photo's, travel and hearing about other places, nature and wildlife - all animals but especially bears and I love polar bears and surfing on my computer.

Favorite Music

I am not really a big music fan at all though I love Kylie (saw her in concert recently and she was absolutely fantastic). I also like Robbie Williams, Madonna etc

Favorite Books

I don't generally get time to read many books, I'm more of a magazine person. If I do read it's normally non-fiction. I love books with facts or lists in, travel guides and books about different places and books about nature or wildlife.

Favorite Movies

My favourite movie has to be Dirty Dancing but I'm not really a film watcher, I generally only go to the cinema to see the latest kids film with my son.

Favorite Television

On tv I enjoy Coronation Street and currently avidly watching Big Brother...yes I know it's sad! I also enjoy real-life documentaries about people, places or animals.

Favorite Crafts

I would love to be good at crafts but don't get the time to indulge and practice. I do make my own cards when I get time and would love to do scrapbooking...one day I will get round to it!

Things I Would Like

I would love to receive photo's, guides, local newspapers, leaflets of your town/area/country.
I enjoy looking at photo's/arts/crafts whether of your family or of something special to you.
Postcards - I enjoy collecting and swapping postcards of all sorts and types.
Recipes and recipe books/magazines.
Stickers.
Stationery especially tags, envelopes, pens, erasers, pins, clips etc.
Notebooks, notecards etc.
Spices/herbs etc for cooking.
Souvenirs/programmes of local sports teams.

Things I Don't Like

Sweets (candy) or anything with sugar in (like these things a lot but don't want to be tempted!).
Anything with aspartame or artificial sweeteners.
Hats (they never fit!)
Make-up (I don't normally wear any)
Tea or coffee (I don't drink either)
Earrings (ears not pierced)

Comment: Thank you! I enjoyed the German magazine clippings though I can no longer remember much of the language from high school--too long ago! Isn't it interesting how homogenized the world has become? Thanks again Julie.
