This is me:
Or at least it was in 1997. Wasn't I a cute child? The most recent comparable picture is the one from when I left school 2 years ago:
Apart from me, there are 4 other people who appear in both pictures, and I bet you can't tell who they are! Hmm.. I have no idea why I was wearing a suit with trainers that day... Actually I do, it was comfy! But breaking the school dress code is bad...
Having had a browse through my facebook pictures, anybody would think I spend my time in fancy dress, drunk and/or pulling silly faces. Case in point:
But there are a couple of things that are very important to me, apart from knitting of course.
First the boy, Connor. We've been together 2 years, best friends for 5 and have lived together for a year:
Then there are my doggies:
The little black and white one is Siouxsie Sioux (after Siouxsie and the Banshees), and she's 6, and the bigger brown and white one is Jessie (named after Toy Story 2) and she's 11 and going very deaf! They're both Cocker Spaniels.
Then there's trampolining, which I am President of. I don't have any pictures of me on a trampoline, so here's some of my club looking very attractive in unflattering leotards:
And finally there's my friends. What actually got me all nostalgic was that some of my school friends made the effort to travel from all over the country to see me this weekend to celebrate my birthday with me. And one of them made me this. It's a wall hanging with pictures of us and things that remind her of me, like some cute but evil things and her old school tie. I was just so touched that she made such an effort and I love it!
Other interesting facts: I have 7 ear piercings and a tattoo. I hate mushrooms and I have most probably seen any band you can name at a festival somewhere =P
Right that's enough self indulgence for now! And I hope that's a good introduction to me.
