About Me

Hello! My name is Tina and I am 33 years old. But I think whatever is supposed to happen to you every year that makes you age an extra year, hasn’t worked on me for a long time. Some days, I still feel 5, 15, 18, 21, depending on what I have going on at that moment in time.

I am quite happily married, although if you ask either of my children, they will probably tell you differently, because apparently, we argue all the time! Which is probably quite true, silly little arguments, that are actually quite fun, and we enjoy to make up! 😉 We’ve been together for a long time, I was still in school when we first got together. I am a big believer in; if you find things to argue about, you obviously still care what each other thinks! So if you listen to our children, we still care… a lot!

On to the children, I have two of them!  A boy, we affectionately call Little Monkey, who was 8 at Christmas, and my little girl aka little poppet or princess depending on how she is behaving, is 6 and loving school and ballet! Oh and one more child, my first and most loyal of beings, my dog Dixon. I’ve had him since we moved to Somerset a long time ago, when we were first married and I was all alone, as my Naval Husband was drafted all over everywhere, (read ‘abandoning wife’). Dixon kept me company and sane! He was a rescue, he had been abandoned in a field and was taken to a rescue near where I am from. I fell in love instantly and he is a dream. At that point, I had heard some horror stories about rescue dogs, but not my boy! He is a gentle giant, and great with the kids. I couldn’t ask for a better boy.

I like to try my hand at all sorts of crafts, I like to go places with the kids, I really like organising the kids parties and making lots of homemade games, cakes, and everything to a theme. But more than anything I love to read, anything and everything. I am not saying I always enjoy every book I read but I will always give a book a go. I love to share books with my children, my friends, my family, random people in the street… 😀

I would say I am quite a quirky character, I call myself weird in an affectionate way, nit like a calling myself way! 😂 I have quite a few strange little obsessions, and I collect them like some people collect stamps or clothes. I don’t know when it started but I ave always been someone that when I discover and like something, I really get into. I have always been this way and I love this quirky feature about myself. I have passion for so many things and I like discovering new loves and passions.

I quite like gaining new qualifications as I love to learn, I love books and there is always a new/old book waiting to be discovered, I like music and dancing – not that I am proficient in any of those but I try! ☺️ I love anime, comics (graphic novels), cartoons, films and so much more. My latest crazy weirdness is my new love for Asian dramas and Korean pop bands. I’ve always loved the idea of travelling and see ]info new places but I am afraid to fly, so I love anything where I get to experience other cultures and see the world because I’m worried I might not ever get a real chance to do it.

So that’s me, in a nutshell. I live in my own little world a lot of the time, it’s a happy and chaotic place but it’s perfect for me. I imagine this blog is a lot like the inside of my brain, a little haphazard, a little chaotic and crazy, but full of the joys and wonder of the world.
