Q Haven't I seen you somewhere before?
A I doubt it, I just have quite a generic face.

 Cheer up love! (more of an insulting request than a question)

What's the title?
It's on the board.

What's your favourite film?

What music do you like?
I have an eclectic taste and I am not at all precious about what I listen to: if I feel like re-living my teenage years I will happily dig out my beloved East 17 CDs; equally, I like Motown, RnB and  indie (mainly 90s), classical, 90s Indie and more recently, folk!

What made you want to be a teacher?
I formed 'toy school' at the age of seven or eight. I was the teacher to an adorable class of teddies, dolls and my long-suffering younger brother. I could say that it was fate that I became a teacher, but I didn't dream I would go into teaching until I was 21 and didn't want to be stuck working in a call centre. Having tried out working with children in a challenging school, I realised that I enjoyed it. Being a teacher means you can be an actor (most of us are not really miserable kill-joys); and you can do something that might make a difference. Also, it is a job of extremes: my favourite being high levels of stress rewarded by amazing holidays!

Q Do you have any siblings?
A Yes. Jeff is two years younger than me and Daniel is nearly eleven years younger than me.

What do you use to take your pictures?
I started out using my Nokia Lumia camera phone and have just recently (end of Aug 2014) purchased a compact system camera from Sony (the A5000). I'm so happy to have invested in a better camera because I love taking photos, even though I'm an amateur. I'm really keen to learn and better my skills and have already picked up so many tips from other bloggers.

What made you start blogging?
I have enjoyed writing for as long as I can remember. I used to write 'Point Horror' style short stories back in the 90s when I was a young teen; angsty poetry  throughout my teen years; and I did creative writing at University as part of my degree. My dissertation was a modern horror novella! Teaching English has made me a better writer, but I am always trying to improve. I spent a good number of years not writing in my mid twenties and I missed it. Blogging was the solution to my writing drought.
