That about.me Thingy
Life On The Edge Of The Sofa
I'm a 42 year old writer, living with my husband and a large collection of tarantulas in Essex. I have an adult son with severe autism and learning disabilities, I'm a media volunteer for Epilepsy Action, and - in spite of a disability preventing me from continuing in my career as a care assistant (I had also hoped to train as a staff nurse) - I give back what I can to my community by volunteering at the local library a few times a week. I am passionate about human and animals rights, and believe that all lives matter. I'm known locally as the eccentric Doctor Who fan who always wears fandom t-shirts and a smile. Oh; I'm also known as Spider Lady.
I enjoy baking, reading and gardening, and I have extensive ways in which to use garden ingredients for pickles and sauces. I've spent this year regaining my health after a near-fatal illness last summer, and encourage others to embrace life in every way they can.

Well Neil Cross. That was absolutely mental. I mean stark raving bonkers INSANE and I LOVED every second. Hide had me from the start with its great haunted house promo poster. I am partial to a bit of a housebound … Continue reading
Oh dear. Time ran away from me this week. As I type up this review I am already ruminating on implications of this week’s Hide (But shhh- spoilers sweetie!) I am not a big fan of Gatiss writing for Doctor … Continue reading
Well guys, I take it all back. Last week I mistakenly claimed that Clara signalled a return to a more RTD inspired dramatic realism, quasi sci fi style on New Who. Who am I kidding? Moffat is addicted to the … Continue reading
My husband and I rarely travel, but we do have to regularly find our way from Chelmsford, Essex, to Cheltenham, Gloucestershire in order to visit my family. Since I am a not-particularly-mobile Epileptic individual who often needs the aid of … Continue reading
