Advantages fun to write
Disadvantages don't ask me!
Some of you may have known me before in my previous Ciao life as flickpugh. I still write on Dooyoo under the same name, but have come back here under a clean slate as my previous account was deleted and I couldn't be bothered to get it up again. I left because I got heartily sick of certain elements on Ciao - mainly the bitchiness and vindictiveness/ arrogance of just one or two members. However, I was still enjoying writing and thought I'd give it another go. Enjoying it again so far and it's nice to catch up with 'old friends'. I intend to get busier on product reviews in the next few weeks (after I come back from holiday in Cornwall) but meanwhile he's a general review/ challenge thing that I first read by a young member called chriswynne16. Family
I come from a traditional nuclear family so I guess that makes me quite a rarity these days! There's my mum, dad, brother and I. Mum and Dad still live in a little town in Wales where I mostly grew up but little brother (well nearly 27 now so not so little!) has up sticks and moved to Hong Kong for the time being at least. My mother comes from a family of 5 children. My Gran, who's my last remaining grandparent, is 87 now but still as sharp as ever. I have lots of aunts uncles and cousins on both parents' side and a lot of them live abroad which gives great travelling opportunities. In January I will travel to New Zealand and Australia and divide my time between my dad's sister in Canberra, my cousin and her 3 children (all under 5, yikes!), also in New South Wales, plus my mum's sister in Dunedin and a cousin and his two young boys in Wellington. We're a close extended family so I'm really looking forward to catching up with everyone again. Pets:
I love animals but sadly having a busy career, social life and living in a 3rd floor flat in London, pets are no longer a possibility. As a child and teenager I had a dog (a beautiful Golden Retriever called Joe) and two horses - Sandy a stubborn golden palomino full of character and Kimberley - my competition horse who was much better behaved but very spirited. One day I would like to live in the country again and have a house full of cats and dogs (not sure how this will work …) and a field full of horses. First of all I have to earn my fortune in London in order to be able to do this though! Me - General Appearance/Features
5ft 6, blonde with fluctuating weight. 30 years old now so noticing the odd crow's foot appearing under my eyes but generally I'm not one to fret too much about my appearance, life is far too short!
I love horse riding (just about to go on a riding holiday to Cornwall, already been on riding trips in Italy and West Wales this year), that's my passion but again living in London, it's not the easiest hobby to do regularly. I love skiing but can only do that a maximum of once a year and won't be going at all next season due to the down under trip so will probably have forgotten how to do it by the next time I go!
