My life is not meticulously ordered, I am making it up as I go along. I'm in an interesting place at the moment, in which I have little time for a conventional relationship (through circumstance and choice) but miss male company something terrible.
Having a child means that I'm more practical and domesticated (meaning I don't prowl around at night, howl at the moon or bring home dead mice - I own a lot of tupperware and know all about the importance of fibre in your diet).
I do occasionally have relapses. These usually involve rum.
There's no need to feel sorry for me though - my daughter and I are a self sufficient unit, and I love that - this part of my life is not up for grabs. My daughter has a great Dad who is still very much involved in her life.
Being a single parent is tough, but we have a lot of fun and I still get time to myself and with my friends. And I get to watch Postman Pat every day. I don't have a great amount of time for a relationship at the moment - but I'm happy to see what happens.
Music is really important. My favourite bands are Shearwater, Red House Painters/Sun Kil Moon, Fleetwood Mac, Iron and Wine, Phosphorescent, Great Lake Swimmers, PJ Harvey, Bonobo and Modest Mouse. I love 90s Britpop (Suede, The Cranberries, Blur, Belle & Sebastian), Bob Dylan and Neil Young too. Ska and reggae are also great - Gladiators are a favourite.
I go through phases with films, at the moment I'm in a Sean Bean inspired costume drama phase (it'll pass!). My all time favourite films would have to be The Fountain, Benny and Joon and Once. Films don't have to go anywhere for me to like them, they don't have to be comfortable or heart warming and they don't necessarily need to make sense. Because life doesn't always do those things.
Due to the unfortunate fact that I have no Skyplus box and very little concept of time, my tv viewing is a bit hit and miss. Mostly miss. Game of Thrones has ruined my peace of mind. A week is far too long to wait for an episode.
I'm quite ashamed to say that I rarely think about global issues (apart from things I can actually do something about like shopping and eating ethically) and politics. It's not that I don't care, I'm just a bit busy. One of my pet hates is when people express ill informed opinions or wade into discussions without really understanding what's being talked about - so unless I actually know what I'm on about, I tend to just sit back and listen!
My garden (I love gardening and watching stuff grow), my friends, the things I'm reading, daydreaming about holidays and places I'd like to go, reminiscing about people and places I used to know.
My next step. I'm not what you'd call a worrier, but I do take time to think about what I'm about to do before I do it, especially if this has implications for other people.
This year I have decided to write a haiku every month,so I think about that quite a bit.
Feel that you'd like to make the world a friendlier place too.
You like talking about music or pre 1900 literature.
