My self-summary
To Ed - I sent messages straight after you sent one saying "men are terrible" :p and pretty much every 2 minutes since

This year I quit my job and flat in Manchester to move back to the Peak District, to run my vintage business full-time. Scary stuff. Just building it up at the minute but I'm loving every second of being my own boss and spending my days doing what I love.

Saying that I've never really had a job I haven't liked (apart from the half hour I lasted at TK Maxx). They've ranged from showing people around caves to dusting dead bodies.

I'm learning to far I sort of suck at it. Driving is hard.

*update* I passed my test hurrah!! - I still can't park

I don't go out nearly as much as I used to. Mainly sitting in old man pubs drinking rum and chatting bollocks. I do love a good night dancing though.

I like wearing dresses....I bloody love a good outfit theme.

I did Archaeology at far it hasn't been mega useful. I am not yet Indiana Jones.

Every photo of me that has ever been taken either consists of me looking like a mard arse or grinning way more than anyone ever should.
What I’m doing with my life
Mainly sitting in a garage polishing things.
I’m really good at
Reading....I fucking rock at reading.

Also word searches....I know they take very limited skill but once I'm in "the word search frame of mind" (totally a thing) I swear I'm unbeatable.
The first things people usually notice about me
I generally look pretty lost.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Fred Hoyle
Stella Gibbons
Carl Hiaasen
Neil Gaiman
Anne Rice
Terry Pratchett
Charlie Brooker

e.t.c. e.t.c.

Lists are dull.

I watch at least one of the Marvel films most evenings. I am not yet bored of them.

This is where I should list lots of foreign films and documentaries and pretend they're my favourites to seem cool....when really my favourites are much more fun:

Empire Records
Death Becomes Her
Magic Mike (obviously...I am an unashamed perve)
Lots of shitty Rom Coms on Netflix


I do listen to music though

Some of my favourites are:

Lady Gaga
Adam and the Ants
Duran Duran
Britney Spears
Gaslight Anthem
Frank Turner
Buddy Holly
One Direction
New Order
Gene Vincent
Enter Shikari
David Bowie
Lou Reed
Chuck Berry
Girls Aloud
The Smiths
Most 90s music

Yep...lists are still dull. Essentially if it's from the 50's, the 80's,the 90s the shouty end of the spectrum or a cheesy gay club chances are I'll like it.

I do enjoy T.V.

Doctor Who
Sherlock (*swoon*)
Bake Off / Sewing Bee / Hair
Black Books
IT Crowd
Game of Thrones
Extreme Couponing
The Thick Of It
Game of Thrones
Parks and Recreation
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
etc etc

Fine, I enjoy crap T.V.

Mmmmmm food. Cheesecake is my favourite. When I'm hungover I crave quiche and mash potato.

I eat anything. Anything apart from tuna and bananas. Those things are gross.
Six things I could never do without
"Friends, Waffles, Work.......or Waffles, Friends, work...doesn't matter but work is third"

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Who's job is it to find a song with lyrics that match exactly what the presenters have just said on Homes Under The Hammer....?
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably preparing frantically for whichever vintage fair I'm selling at at the weekend.

If not I'll be in a pub, or visiting friends somewhere
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a phobia of people dressed as animals.

I cannot ride a bike.

I genuinely like One Direction and slept in a train station so that I could see them live.

The background on my computer is generally a topless picture of Jedward. I'll show you it if you ask nicely...they look beautiful.

None of these things are actually secret, everyone that knows me knows all those things.

Apparently they're all pretty embarrassing facts.....but I have literally no shame about any of them. I don't believe in guilty pleasures
You should message me if
I currently consider myself taken..... so if you've got cool things to tell me / places to show me then message me! Just don't expect anything romantic
The two of us
