I’ve wanted a blog for ages.
I put it on the ‘things to do’ list.
I thought about it.
Finally I set it up.
Of course I now have no idea of what I wanted to say and have no memory of why I wanted to do this in the first place!
I suspect that lovely cliché that writers write came into it somewhere. There are also those times when there is no one to talk to and I want to say more than Twitter will let me. This is usually about a TV programme or something that has really annoyed me… or excited me (steady!)…or intrigued me.
So – what to blog about? I am a person of random but thorough obsessions. This might be a TV show – some are consistently around but most are strictly seasonable (SCD anyone?). It might be an actor – someone I don’t understand why they are famous or someone I don’t understand why they are not. Or just a performance that I thought worthy of notice. My viewing is eclectic – Being Human, Spooks, Life on Mars/Ashes to Ashes feature as well as a good stock of old favourites and some slightly less well thought of shows that I happily watch but don’t intend to confess to – yet.
What else? I have a well trained herd of shoes, including some rare breeds from as far back as the 80s. I like to increase the herd – best to avoid inbreeding – and abide by the strict rule that the words ‘need’ and ‘shoes’ have no place in the same sentence (except here). If you are very lucky one day I will explain shoe maths to you. I design and make jewellery – and wear as much of it as I can! I love Swarovski crystal and am generally a magpie for anything sparkly. To balance that chunk of girlie-ness I never did get over punk and will stop wearing black as soon as someone invents a darker colour.
If I have a current obsession I will share until we are all bored – sometimes it might even be me that gets bored first. (Although that may not be often…)
Here goes – watch this space and always – always – wear your best shoes!
