About Me

My name's Clare and I'm from Liverpool, UK but I currently live just outside the city with my boyfriend. I love to craft - especially making cards and scrapbooking. I've just started an art journal and I'm trying to teach myself how to draw so we'll see how that goes! I like music, films, reading and cooking. I also like gardening but I'm only a novice. I'd love to find a couple of pen-pals to swap crafts, pics and interest with. I'm all for snail mail over email when it comes to friends :-)

Favorite Music

I love many types of music; Bands/Artists I like include:- The Who, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Oasis, Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke, most Motown and Northern Soul artists, Paolo Nutini, 90s Britpop music... and loads more that would take too long to list!

Favorite Movies

I love horror films, dramas, dark comedies, crime & thriller films and science-fiction.

Some of my favourites are:-

LOTR trilogy, Interstellar, The Thing, Alien, Amelie, When Harry Met Sally, The Big Lebowski, Big, The Goonies, Groundhog Day, Jurassic Park, James Bond films, Goodfellas, The Godfather, Mesrine, About Time...

My favourite Actors and Directors:-

Tom Hanks, Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, Sam Rockwell, Robert de Niro, Diane Keaton, Bill Murray, Matt Damon, Ryan Gosling Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, Woody Allen, Christopher Nolan, Tim Burton, Rob Reiner

I'm actually a bit of a movie geek!

Favorite Books

1984 by George Orwell is my favourite book

My favourite books as a child were Roald Dahl books - particularly The Witches (which I still love!)

I also love anything by Haruki Murakami and I'm currently reading '1Q84'

I love crime thrillers too - Simon Kernick, Harlan Coben, John Grisham are always on my reading list

I love Oscar Wilde and Sherlock Holmes books.

I also like poetry; Maya Angelou, Roger McGough, Edna St Vincent Millay, E E Cummings, Pablo Neruda

Song Lyrics #1 Electronic

"If there's a phone in heaven put Mama on the line."

Phone in Heaven by Mike Manuel

I asked my daughter if she would sing this at my funeral and she said she didn't think she could make it through the whole song...

Shoo be doo ay, I got something to say Shoo be doo I, gotta try To tell you that I, I, I, I really love you, love you Shoo be doo ay, gotta say it my way It may not be fancy, I know But I said it before, and I'll say it again And again, and again, and again

My favorite quote for today

Profile Quote #13

"A successful competition for me is always going out there and putting 100 percent into whatever I'm doing. It's not always winning. People, I think, mistake that it's just winning. Sometimes it could be, but for me, it's hitting the best sets I can, gaining confidence, and having a good time and having fun." - Simone Biles

Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy and change ordinary opportunities into blessings." - William Arthur Ward

"She drinks pints of coffee and writes little observations and ideas for stories with her best fountain pen on the linen-white pages of expensive notebooks. Sometimes, when it's going badly, she wonders if what she believes to be a love of the written word is really just a fetish for stationery." David Nicholls

Song Lyrics #1 Electronic:

We can park the van and walk to town.
Find the cheapest bottle of wine that we could find.
And talk about the road behind,
How getting lost is not a waste of time.

Jack Johnson - What you thought you need.
