Reader, teacher, music-lover. Occasional writer. Scared of penguins, zombies and Richard Gere's nipples.

Currently teaching and surviving in rural Lincolnshire, famed for its beautiful open sky and not much else. I dream of rainy days and cups of tea. My faithful terriers and I love long walks on the beach, where they can bounce in the surf and I can paddle with my shoes on. I will only eat trifle if my Nan made it. Sometimes I have Strange Ideas. Sometimes I write them down.
