About Me

Nicola here, medic by day (and all too frequently by night and weekends) and glitter-obsessed book-lover by... well, day, night and weekends as well.

I love reading, crafts and games/gaming. I am often to be found dancing in the kitchen or spinning poi (often without the poi which earns me strange looks) or playing the piano (often without the piano). I collect stamps and elephants (mini ones - I only have a little room) - if anyone's ever seen the movie 'Secret Garden', that's where I got the idea from.

My favourite colour is blue; I'm probably not allergic to pink and orange but why risk it? I like most things sparkly (vampires not included although it does make them an easier target) and will probably be best remembered for discovering the cancer-causing or cancer-curing properties of glitter, I'm still crunching the numbers.

Currently working as a junior doctor in Wales so don't be surprised by the occasional bout of bleak black medical humour :)

Introduced to this by a friend and thought it was too much fun to pass up (plus I could get more stamps - very shiny) so here I am and hello!

~ * ~

Just a little extra in case people are looking for ideas :)

I actually really love seeing other people's work from their own inspirations so anything created/adapted/something that inspires you is always a win. That said, domesticated/pet dogs, the 'carry on and...' campaign and rainbows with the colours out of order (don't ask) aren't likely to win any shiny stars from me any time soon.

Likes:

blue/purple/green

butterflies

stars/astronomy

gothic/Halloween

glitter/sparkles/shiny

quotes (people, song lyrics, books, you)

flowers (not floral prints but actual plants, whether presses, drawings, photos or facts - I did a school project as a kid and kind of got hooked)

dinosaurs!

sci-fi and fantasy

There you go - a slightly less terrifying than usual glimpse into the so-called workings of my mind! Hope that helps :)

I'm so excited that I got you for a swap partner for Six Word Memoirs! You sound like so much fun. And I love that you live in Wales--I have been wanting to go there for ages and have actually tried learning to speak Cymru (I haven't been very successful so far though). Cheers, Aurelas

Hi! I'm your partner for the Quick ATC swap :D

Just thought I'd leave a little comment as your profile looks a little bare.

I am planning on making you an ATC, so far I know it needs to be blue - are there any other topcis/themes you like that I could potentially use?

Hope to hear back from you! - Chrissie
