About Me

Am 37 years old. I am one of the managers in a supported living home for Adults with learning/Mental Health needs - I love my job. Enjoy music, reading and swimming. Enjoy writing letters, sending postcards, and also collecting them. Some of my fav bands include Nirvana, Manics, Lou Reed, Offspring, do like some chart stuff.

I like reading, while I will read almost anything, horror/ghosts are the types I like most of all, I dislike Clowns, they are just creepy - that and the film IT put me off. I like anything "grungy" - most likely a reflection on the way that I dress. I love body piercing.

I live in London, but orginally come from Norwich, I moved to London for Uni - that was a long time ago now.

Cannot really say that I collect many things, postcards and bookmarks are the main thing, but to look at my flat it would be fair if you though that I collected books. I live with my boyfriend, we have been togther for 16 years, we dont have children but do have one cat, called Mog, he is very soppy and nearly one year old. Sometimes we take him to the pub on a lead with us, we live on the 7 th floor so he mainly a house cat but does go out with us, he tends not to drink at the pub however. I like frogs/toads, koloa bears - I really hope to see one for real one day. We dont have a TV, but thankfully for Iplayer I enjoy Eastenders, Buffy (via DVD), mainly listen to radio 4 (the archers rock!)

On my (rare) days off - (bloody mobile phones) I will either tend to nowt, see friends or come over all Step-ford house Wife and moan the moment the boyfriend puts his bag down as I'VE JUST CLEANED THERE. I swear, I have been this close with the newspaper when he comes in..... don't even have a garden. Recently started with the whole mail art, I would like to try ATCs/Inchies but the amount of times I have tried and just ended up throwing them away is untrue (scared people will laugh at the them)...but will keep at it. I am rather a shy person - I hate eating in front of people that I do not know, talking and suggesting things in case they think that its wrong - however I can also be rather forward in my view if need be. I have a condition called NF - this is also why I am shy at times because of the lack of understanding that there is (more so in the UK in my understanding) - people will just assume that you have been hit (I have a large lump of my eye, everyone from my boyfriend/parents to the people I support have been accused of hitting me). It really gets me down at times - but there are people worse of than me (I mean that in a "i should stop being so bloody selfish at times") By the way...as you may have noticed I am bad at spelling.

If you have not received your item from me please let me know, and I promise to rate.

At times I also go off on "i understand what I mean, so everyone will" rant. If anything I have said does not make sense feel free to ask.

Comment: I love love LOVE this PC! I have never seen anything like it before....please tell me where you got it so I can get some too. Thank you so much for sharing your story with me and for trying to make me smile. If you are interested in being pen pals I would love that. I like pen pals who also suffer from depression as then we can offer support to each other.

BTW, I checked Kentwell's website and you're right, it looks fantastic! I would love to participate on the re-Creations of everyday Tudor life, we have a similar event called Keskiaikamarkkinat (=Middle Ages Fair), if you google "Kokkola keskiaikamarkkinat" you can get a pretty good picture of it I think :) thank you for introducing Kentwell, I will have to add it to the places I want to visit in the UK :)
