I'm from lovely Belfast, Northern Ireland
I studied English and Biblical Studies (and a bit of Linguistics, German and IT!) in St. Andrews, Scotland (home of golf, beaches, cathedral and an all round wonderful place to spend four years).
Then I went to Leeds, England to do a teaching qualification and was miserable for 9 months until I got a teaching job in Enniskillen back in NI but very far from the big smoke of Belfast. Now I enjoy a 'bovine view' (ie cows opposite), veggie patch, driving everywhere, lakes, country nosiness, tractors on the roads and some very lovely people. And I have a lovely house in small village called Bellanaleck and teach English to all the bad boys in town! I mostly blog about my house and the random projects I attempt which are sometimes successful and often look like a primary school art project!
Most favourite things:
- growing veg
- white gloss paint
- hot glue gun
- 8 week teacher summer holidays!
- getting emails, texts and comments
- ghd straighteners
- going out for a coffee and a gossip
Least favourite things:
- marking essays
- getting up early
- driving unknown places
- getting my hair cut
And that's it!
