Birthdate:Feb 12
I'm a bit of a dichotomy; a conventional eccentric. I balance family, home, love life and social life precariously, teetering along the edge but usually smiling as I wobble my way along in life. In the words of Meredith Brooks: I'm a little bit of everything, all rolled into one; I'm a bitch, I'm a lover, I'm a child, I'm a mother, I'm a sinner, I'm a saint (um, actually, that last one isn't entirely true)... etc etc. I'm sure you get the idea. I'm complicated. :)

I grew up in Manchester, but am now lucky enough to live in the Peak District, which is one of the most beautiful parts of the UK (after Cornwall). I love to cook, to bake, to be out in my garden. Someone recently described my life as being a bit 'Enid Blyton' and at times that's almost true (although with added spice, naturally *grin*).

I love making new friends, but as a result of past events I am sometimes a bit wary of random 'adds' on LJ. So by all means friend me if you wish, but please drop me a line or leave me a comment telling me who you are, etc :)

*** Contact details are here (LJ-friends-only post - will update Dreamwidth with a similar post as and when (and if) I get around to it). Keep them confidential please. No, really. Keep them VERY confidential. I *detest* my details being given out without my prior consent!

*** My Amazon wishlist is here. Buy me stuff!

I believe the sun should never set upon an argument
I believe we place our happiness in other people's hands
I believe that junk food tastes so good because it's bad for you
I believe my parents did the best job they knew how to do
I believe that beauty magazines promote low self esteem
I believe I'm loved when I'm completely by myself alone

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love 'til you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe you can't control or choose your sexuality
I believe that trust is more important than monogamy
I believe your most attractive features are your heart and soul
I believe that family is worth more than money or gold
I believe the struggle for financial freedom is unfair
I believe the only ones who disagree are millionaires

from Affirmation by Savage Garden. Reproduced here because it fits very well with my personal beliefs. Except the part about junk food tasting good - because it really doesn't. At all.
