I think I should get more tea before I start this….

I’m assuming this post should be a little bit about me, who I am and what I do.
So here goes;

I’ll start with the easy bits – What I do.
I write – fiction (if I’ve set it up correctly my other blog will be accessible from a link on the top right corner of this page) at the moment I’ve only released a snippet as Iā€™m still on the fence about other people reading what I write.

I read – A lot. I’m currently re-reading the Wheel of Time books by Robert Jordan. I am also reading the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher for the first time and am already in love with Harry. If you have not read them – go do it.

I play games – various different PC games, I’m a pretty big Skyrim fan and I am immensely looking forward to TE6. Other games I have dabbled in include (but are not limited to – I couldn’t list them all) World of Warcraft, Magic the Gathering, Elder scrolls Oblivion, League of Legends (though not anymore) and Minecraft.

I cook – I love food.
I knit – not very well.

I survive – this is actually pretty important, and leads me onto the bit about who I am. In truth, I think I’m still finding that out, I can tell you for certain I am not the same person I was ten years ago and will probably be different in another ten years. I’ve spent far too much time trying to be someone I thought other people needed or wanted me to be and it’s taken me many years to realise that I can be whoever the hell I bloody like. This being said, I am now on a rather late road of self-discovery, but I figured if I didn’t start now, then when?

I am a cat mum – I have two pet cats that are 4 years old, whom I have proudly raised from kittens of 8 weeks old. Unfortunately, they were born with silver spoons in their tiny mouths (inserted by me) and now seem to think they own the place. Which they do if I am honest, but they are wonderful company when you live alone, and when my partner comes to stay, they make us into a nice little family of 4. incidentally if you do not like cat pictures then this will not be the place for you.

I would say I’ve come a long way and have a long way to go, I have a fair few mental health issues which I’m sure I will discuss once I feel more comfortable blogging. I was inspired to do this by Jenny Lawson, and I’m sure she has inspired many others like me to do the same thing. She’s a grade A human being, and I genuinely think she might just be my spirit animal. if you have not read her blog (but you probably have) then go and read it now.

I think that’s it, for now, obviously there’s more than that but if I write it all in one big post I thin that defies the point of having the blog in the first place.
I will leave you with a picture of my babies, cats, pets…sod it they’re like my children.
