This is me

Well, how on earth do you start one of these things without it sounding terrible? I have absolutely no idea, as this is my first ever blog. Perhaps I should start by giving you a few details about myself?

OK, here goes: I’m 28 years old and am currently living in Sydney. I’m married; to a man I shall call Mr Wombat. I have one sister, two parents and the very occasional grandparent. We have no children; at least none that are living. We are, however, building up a family of wombats, very slowly.

I am, despite currently being in residence in New South Wales’s premier city, an English girl through and through, and we normally live in the UK. This year in Sydney just being a bit of a hiccup in our residential status really.

Perhaps I should do one of those quiz thingies, “borrowed” from someone I know…

You can only type one word.

Hmmm… Does that help? Possibly not.

So why am I writing this? Well, partly because I like writing, and also because it helps me to sort out things in my head. So this is really mostly for me, I guess, so the people I know in “real life” don’t keep saying “Oh God, not you again? Shut up! We just don’t care!” Of course most of them are too polite, but there’s only so much wittering you can do before people start to get bored. Anyhow…

  1. Welcome to the blogosphere honey. 🙂

    You’ve got it bang on the button, it IS a great way to sort things out in your head, and a good way to improve your writing skills. And for some reason I find it much easier to blog than to keep a diary.



  2. Aw… my first comment! This has made me ridiculously excited…
    Agreed – far easier to blog than keep a diary. Not sure why.

    Welcome to Australia!

    I’ve been in Adelaide for 3 years but still translate everything into sterling using my fingers (and occasionally toes).

    Don’t you find it weird when your GP’s receptionist asks for Visa or Mastercard at the end of the appointment? Still shocks me every time.

    Enjoy the wombats (second only to koalas on my ‘best things about Australia’ list)

    • Thanks! I do translate absolutely everything into sterling, all the time!
      I know what you mean about the GP receptionist, it’s weird.
      And I love wombats, they’ve got to be one of the best animals invented!
