Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a primary school teacher, I love my job and, yes I admit it,
the holidays are great too.
I love reading, especially since discovering the Kindle and the
wonders of the Kindle store. I can now have 3 or 4 books on the go
at once and carry all my favourites around with me everywhere I go.
I've lived in SW London since moving here many, many years ago for
university and liked it so much I never left. I'm actually a
Norfolk girl born and bred although I no longer have the accent to

Somewhat sadly, it's probably the fact that I'm a ginger ninja.

Books: I love to read and usually have two or three books on the go
at any given moment, even more so since getting a Kindle! I've read
all of Stephen King's books and would pick The Shining as my
favourite. I'm prepared to wait however many years it takes for the
next in the Game of Thrones/ Song of Ice & Fire series to be
published. I've just started The Lifeboat.
Movies: Labyrinth, Ghostbusters, Moulin Rouge, Up, The Nightmare
Before Christmas, Spirited Away, The Woman in Black, A Beautiful
Mind, The Shining (although not as an adaptation of the book).
Thanks to my two nieces I have probably seen every Disney film ever
at least twice in the last 2 years. Aladdin was my favourite.
TV: The Big Bang Theory, Criminal Minds, The Apprentice, The
Simpsons, the Mighty Boosh. I liked Lost when it was on although
kept missing episodes and whole seasons so never really knew quite
what was going on. I started watching Horrible Histories on the
CBBC channel looking for clips to use at work but ended up
recording the whole series because I liked it so much. I'm always
looking for any recommendations for my next box-set! :)
Music: I'm not too fussy about music. I am still living in hope
that Adam & Joe will return to 6Music.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My nieces, my kindle, wine, tea, perfume and my duvet

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

no relation whatsoever to the book, other than the title.

Working with children all day can make it difficult to meet new
grown-up people who don't want to discuss the new national
curriculum or phonics testing for 5-year-olds. I'm hoping to meet
people who are positive, kind and have something interesting to
say. I love meeting with people with skills and talents - playing
an instrument, speaking a foreign language, magic tricks. computer
programming - I can't do any of those things and am always
impressed by people who can!
