So, this is it then. I have to write something about myself. Something people might find interesting. Well, it is true that I am the youngest of three. It is probably also true that I was, occasionally, spoilt. Brat? I hope not, although I expect I had my moments. I certainly do now. Sometimes I just need to give myself a slap. Did I have to fight for attention? Who knows? I've had to fight for a few things since though, won a few, lost a few.
As the youngest child, was she a spoiled brat or did she have to fight for attention?
I love: shoes, shopping and Chablis; books, beaches and ballroom dancing; London, laughter and life; perfume, Pinot Grigio and parties; walking, writing and Bill Withers.
This is me
I've worked full-time since I was aged 16, except for a period of six weeks sometime ago, when I worked part-time. Since leaving school, I have studied part-time, and have a Masters degree, a post-graduate diploma and a BSc (Hons). And a few other things besides: I'm a qualified nail therapist, hot stone masseuse, Reiki Master, hypnotherapist...
I love a good manicure,I have been doing my own nails for as long as I remember. Speak to me nicely and I might do yours. Men and women, I've done both.
I love a gadget. And for the purposes of this Wizzography, "gadget" covers everything from a screwdriver to electrical gizmos. Let me illustrate: I'd just had the conservatory built and the main man from the company came round to do a little check. Miss Shirley asked for something to be done, and he said,
"Oh, don't suppose you've got a chisel?"
Don't suppose you've got a chisel? Seriously?
"Hold on a minute," said I.
And promptly produced a pack of brand new chisels that I just happened to buy in Homebase when I was having a mooch. (I did say that I love shopping, remember?) The main man from the double glazing company was hugely impressed. As he should be. My tool box is a thing to be desired and envied. I could re-build this house from scratch. If I knew how.
Oh, believe me, I tried to do it all on my own. And I've made a fair job of it, but there are some things that completely evade me. Not to mention bore me. Don't ever ask me to do your plumbing. Manicure and pedicure, yes. Plumbing no.
So, twelve years later, my house still isn't finished. I hope to remedy that soon. I do a lovely job of varnishing a floor, and a couple of those still need doing. (Do you see the theme emerging here? Varnish/paint?)
Did I mention my girls? My four beautiful girls? I did say that I love animals, didn't I? My girls, the loves of my life. They are all rescues, two sets of sisters. Actually, my first book is about them, I just need to decide whether I e-publish or try the conventional route... Of course, there have been others before, including dogs. I really love dogs too. But I couldn't have a dog with the fearsome foursome.
I started writing about three and half/four years ago. I love it more as I do more. I read as much as I can, about virtually anything. At the moment, mainly about SEO, etc, anything that's going to help me with my online writing career. I'm planning on doing a web design course in a few months, just to help me out.
Is there anything you want to know? The lovely Rhea is now sitting between me and the keyboard, and this is always where my typ9+6
ing goes awry.
Thanks for reading.
