16 Things about me:

1. I love reading,theres always a book on the go,just finished Stephen Kings Duma Key and am a couple of Chapters into Melanie King`s "The Dying Game" ,still got to finish off Stephen Fry`s Making History too.

2. I can`t stand custard, the sweet milky vanilla smell is enough to turn my stomach- probobly due to the disgusting school dinners at my primary school!

3. The scariest hour of my life was trying to talk a total stranger down from committing suicide,he was one of my Fathers redundancy clients, I don`t know how serious he was but having lost a few friends that way I was pretty terrified of saying the wrong thing.

4. I like dogs a lot but I am much more of a cat lover nowadays.

5. I have only fallen in love once, and that is all I need 🙂 x

6. I once fell through a ceiling and was surprisingly unscathed.

7. My emotions run closer to the surface these days.

8. I have only ever worked for myself, doing furniture and antique restoration.

9. I held an exhibition of my art when I was 23,it was succesful. I never did a second show though my sister is really pushing me to while work is so quiet.

10. I love Chinese food.In fact we went for a Chinese tonight and I am so stuffed!

11. My earliest memory is of snow, I remember my Mum and me playing in really deep snow – must have been 2 or 3. I still get excited by snow.

12. My OCD thing is I have to straighten pictures that aren`t hung straight or I just won`t be able to get comfortable.

13. I don`t like hospitals- had too many tests in them when I was sick as a child and seeing Grandpa slowly dying in a geriatric ward when I was 10, they scare me so much now.

14. Perversely I do like visiting the dentist and find it rather restful,enough to fall asleep once.

15. I was a big Doctor Who fan,though I switched alliance when Blakes 7 had all the characters killed off just before Christmas too I was traumatized for weeks!) One of the few things left from my huge Dr Who collection is the copy of Tom Bakers autobiography he signed for me,what a lovely mad guy he is!

16. I am happier at 35 than at any other time in my life – I really wouldn`t want to change anything in my past, any of the bad things or the good…

1st July 2009 – A strange day. Work wasn’t good, but I escaped some annoying work for another month for unknown reasons I am rejoicing in. Other good news in the day is that PSC was delivered (my gold card was printed within it, yay! It’s so cool seeing work printed by friends in there too, makes me v excitable), plus plans to go visit some leeches at the Wellcome Institute next week, plus my first ever Etsy buyer paid. Which brings me to the bubble wrap to prepare my package for its journey to America. I feel like a Doctor Who baddie 😀

Now all I have to do is lose the mad pulsating headache and all will be well with the world.
