About Me

I’ve been writing for as long as I’ve known how. As a little girl I’d write my own stories, illustrate them (although everyone will tell you I’m better with words than pictures) and staple them together so they’d look like proper books.

I moved from the sunny South to do a Journalism degree at the University of Lincoln. I left with a 2.1, some great friends, a computer full of photos and a bit of a northern accent.

I was diagnosed with Lupus when I was 14 and I started writing a diary, way before this new-fangled blogging lark became all the rage. My diary says everything I was too scared to actually tell the world I was feeling. And since then I’ve grown up. I still sneak a peek at my notebooks crammed full of teenage thoughts but I don’t need them anymore.

Friends and family tease me for my proper grammar and spelling, but I think it’s important to do things properly. I’ve even boycotted the local sandwich shop until they sort out their apostrophes!

I like, in no particular order;

  • New shoes
  • Writing
  • Pic n mix
  • Photographs
  • Chips (with or without cheese)
  • Boybands
  • Girly books
  • Asking questions
  • Football
  • Rainbows
  • Airports
  • Reality TV
  • Chocolate milkshake
  • Holidays

    I love how we’re the same when it comes to grammar and spelling! In my last job, my boss sent me something to proof read, to ‘check for spelling and grammer mistakes’. Erm….

    And i made a fool of myself in a hairdressers for telling them that ‘customers belongings are left at there own risk’ wasn’t entirely accuarate, but I don’t think the poor girl at the till understood.

    Love the blog, keep writing!! xx

    I am always spotting spelling mistakes… I let it drive me a bit bonkers and I’m so annoyed to find them in printed books! Sometimes it spoils the story for me as I can’t let the typo go. I’ve just come across you on Lupus UK Health Unlocked and feel inspired by your blog. Keep it going, it probably has and will continue to do others a lot of good. Take care
