I’m just me, both a Queen and a clown (more whimsical than slapstick, but I have keeled over with laughter a fair few times); by turns clued up and clueless, and sometimes both at once; ordinary and extraordinary in parts, with an indomitable inner child. A thinker who usually paragraphs more skilfully than this, but stream-of-consciousness is hard to break into separate blocks of thought (although I confess that it wasn’t entirely stream-of-consciousness, as I went back and tweaked bits, like this one). Shy and sometimes brave, back me into a corner and I’ll stand my ground - wait, doesn’t that mean I’ll stay in the corner?! Oh well, sometimes the corner is the best place in the room. An introvert with an inner extrovert, with the occasional Queenly flash across the eyes if you try to oppress me, but a lover of serenity and simple pleasures (even though I accidentally typed ‘ample’ instead of ‘simple’), never was drawn to high octane thrills, or diamond necklaces, into quirkier tokens of affection. Okay, I can’t stand it - I need some paragraphs...
Lover of nature - the sea, the hills, forests - and animals, with a childlike longing for a cat or a dog (or a donkey or a seal).
Have a bottle of bubble mix in my kitchen, an OU maths degree on the go, a languages degree from yonks ago (very rusty!), and a cramped living space until I can get my act together and break free of bedsit land. Ah, this paragraphing thing isn’t going to work, is it?! Used to go climbing (okay, medium octane) until someone I trusted made a careless mistake twice and blamed both on me - after I’d stopped spinning in circles! That’s a lie - I’d already stopped trusting him. Now a toe problem means I may not set foot in a rock boot again - which is a shame, as I climbed not to achieve the high grades, but for the simple feline pleasure of it. I’ve let the best parts of my life go in the past few years, since the death of a dear friend, and the pandemic has been particularly isolating, but I still have some good friends and some sense of purpose. I work with great kids, I’m fascinated by people and I love life, regardless of its particular circumstances. With a strong ability to find the lesson in the dirt, a vibrant imagination, renewed will, and a natural tendency to smile, I’m taking myself out of this corner (although I reserve the right to go sit in it for the odd hour, if I feel like a bit of quiet contemplation and spiritual re-charging) and back into the space and sunlight of a life well-lived. Perhaps I’ll see you there. And maybe we’ll be in each Other’s corner...:-)
