Who am I? Well, that's a question I ask myself every day - and I don't know if I'll ever know the answer. I'm a searcher - searching first and foremost for myself.
Before I go any further, I may as well be brutally honest. In the interests of being completely open here and now, I freely admit that I suffer from certain mental health conditions. No, I don't need your pity or for you to hold me up - but I do expect you to respect that sometimes I can't commit to something because of my condition, and that some of my humour and knowledge is based around these subjects. I'm not going to avoid the topics just because they're stigmatised. I wouldn't expect you to be ashamed if you had a physical health problem (maybe you were born with a heart defect or something...), please don't expect me to be ashamed of something I had just as little control over.
I love reading Terry Pratchett's books as well as Douglas Adams' Hitchiker's Guide trilogy. I also enjoy the Pern series by Anne McAfferey and various other fantasy and fantasy humour books.
I enjoy photography especially of animals and children. I've begun to take an interest in scrapbooking and other craftish pursuits, though I'm the first to admit my mind is far more creative than my hands. I often get frustrated that my hands can't create what my mind's eye displays.
Finally, I listen to almost all types of music but especially love country music and new country music.
One day I'd like to be somebody's "mummy". In the meantime, I have 4 beautiful nieces and two very handsome nephews, as well as a job in childcare.
I am inventive, contradictory, and nurturing.
