Hello and welcome to my page! I am a writer who has just started to dabble in photography! Writing is, and always will be, my first love, though, and in my gallery you can find a large selection of short stories and poems, with a smattering of non-fiction thrown in for good measure. You can also find my photos here, too!

I have a huge passion for books and I spend my days reading, browsing the library for new books to read or the local bookstores. I live in Tewkesbury, which is a lovely place for books with some quaint, independent bookstores and charity bookstores! So I'm in seventh heaven living here.

I also volunteer, part-time, at a local charity bookshop in Tewkesbury called Bookworm! I sort through the donated books and determine their quality as we only sell good quality books. Then I price them up, categorize and shelf them and man the till! It's a great gig for someone who loves books; as I do!

I run a book review blog over at Wordpress where I review the best, the worst and the "just okay" books as I read them. Follow the link and be sure to hit "Follow" to be kept up to date with latest blog posts: alifelivedthroughbooks.wordpre…
I live with my partner, we just bought a house together, and we're planning on getting a cat next year.

I help run the groups Glory-Be-Project, TheTitlePage and CRPhotography!

So have a browse around my page and feel free to send me a :note: if you want to say hi!

Job hunting, I've decided, is soul sucking. 

Honestly, it is soul destroying. 

I send out anywhere between 10-30 job applications a week and, if I'm lucky, I hear from 2. And they are usually rejections. 

I'm branching out in my search a bit now. I've currently only been looking at jobs in Tewkesbury but I'm now looking at jobs in Cheltenham. I'd rather not travel as it sucks money out of my earnings for bus fare but given what little luck I'm having here in Tewkesbury, I've got to try. 

I'm also sending out speculative CV's, as opposed to waiting for a job opportunity to open up. It's something the job centre advised me to do and it's something employers like; someone taking the initiative and putting their name forward for a job that might not exist yet. 

So I apply and I send and I hope that someday soon someone will take me on! 

In other news; we had mice in our attic! Not a pleasant experience, let me tell you. They would scurry along under the insulation all night and keep me awake. My other half was convinced it was just pipes and air in the system but I knew otherwise and when I plucked up the courage to enter the attic I found a bait box left by the previous owners and droppings! We called someone professional in and he came out four times until they were all gone (well, there were no more mouse in the traps, at least!). 

The book-shop is keeping me busy. We actually open our own tea-rooms on Wednesday so my shift on Thursday will involve serving teas and coffees, too! Should be interesting and break the day up. I think we are operating on a donations scheme initially; people pay what they want to donate for their drinks. I hope we get lots of customers and it is a success :)

Thursday I attended the outpatients at the hospital. The dr's have finally referred me to rheumatology for the pains I get in my knees, wrists and shoulder. They are taking it very seriously and I had 7 vials of blood taken and have to go back for x-rays! Fingers crossed they will figure out what is going on and how to stop/manage it! 

How are you all? :heart:
