Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've left this one till last and I still don't know what to write.
I'm a pretty good person. I have a lot of integrity and loyalty to
my friends and family. I have good intelligence and I listen well.
I love the city life - particularly live music, cool local bars
where I will always see people I know, etc, but I love to get to
the country as much as possible. Usually that is with other people
who play music and my dog gets the exercise she lacks in the city.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Playing music, teaching ukulele, being a mother and friend and
living in my fairly chaotic home which is always filled with
interesting people. I do love my life which swings between mayhem
and pretty quiet from one day to the next. I play in a band or two
and involve myself in lots of creative projects. If I don't have
some kind of gig or performance to look forward to I feel a bit
lost. Ideally I'd also like to have my garden bursting with food. I
have achieved this at times but lately I feel lucky to have wild
rocket, parsley, and silverbeet going to seed. Home grown beans and
tomatoes are the best things in the world. Well, in their own way
anyway. I'm slowly making progress on a renovation and trying to
stick to a philosophy of using entirely materials that are free -
found in skips, etc. So far so good. I've only bought a tiny bit of

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
... lots of things. I usually find if I decide to do something -
I'm good at it. Deciding what to do sometimes trips me up. I can't
fix cars but I can wield an angle grinder. I'm pretty creative. I
sing, I sew(costumes mainly), I play sax and ukulele. I'm a good
friend, parent (sometimes), I can give a good massage - and love
that to be reciprocated! I say yes to things which means I take on
too much sometimes. I like to be busy doing interesting things. I'm
bad at housework. I'm no slave to domesticity even though I love my

My reading is pretty random - lately I've been reading Ben Elton
but that's not really indicative of what I normally read. I love
biographies and autobiographies. Jeanette Winterson, Ursula Le
Guinn, Isabelle Allende, Peter Carey, Heinrich Boll, Helen Garner
are authors I've read lately. I generally grab something from the
bookshelf and give it a go.
Movies - don't like violence, car chases, explosions, all that kind
of stuff. I prefer a movie that is mentally stimulating and perhaps
has a social conscience. More arty sometimes. Like a lot of Aussie
I love music - playing it, listening to it, watching it. Mainly
alternative folk, jazz, blues, some country, soul. I dig around on
you tube a lot. I go to local gigs quite a bit. Not into top 40.
Listen to PBS most days at work.
I love food that other people cook. I don't spend a lot of time
cooking but somehow I manage to put food on the table most days! I
can think of better things to do with my time. I do like good food
though. Wholesome and healthy.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I might have a drink at a local bar with a friend to listen to
music or I'm doing a gig or going to a party or I drop in on a
friend or just stay at home.
