Exciting news

I would like to say a really big Thank You to Wendy over at the butterfly balcony for giving me this blog award. I am thrilled, on three counts.
1, people come over to visit my little blog,
2, people like what they see
3, and that I was thought of to pass this one to.

So the deal is seven little bits of infomation about yourself and then pass it on.

1, I adore loud shoes. I have lots. Amongst my favourites is a pair of bubblegum scented black shoes by Vivenne Westwood. I am currenly saving for a pair of Steampunk shoes or boots from

2, I live 'in the sticks', many do not understand this phrase they think I just mean the countryside. Its a small village, we do not have streetlights (so at 5o'clock in the winter it is really dark), we do not have a shop or a pub. These are in the next village and we are not on a bus route. I live with my three kids and 6 pets, and we all love it.

3,  I have three tattoos and ten pearcings. For my daughters' 21st Birthday I paid for her first tattoo.

4, I used to play Sudo 3 in a Samba band. Until I had constant pain in my elbow, cortizone injections unfortunalty have left some muscle distrophy which means I can no longer play the drums. My daughter has discovered a local (well about ten miles away) Uklele Band, which sounds like great fun so we hope to pop along there soon.

5, I have dicovered I love Gosu Rori. Japanese Gothic Lolita clothing. Lots of frills, bows, and wild. I have purchased some Gosu Rori books and will be blogging about these shortly.

6, I do not listen to music as much as I used to, parhaps the noise of kids and pets is enough, LOL. But currently my favourites are
Steampunk Opera- Dolls of New Ablion

Steam powerd giraffe-Honeybee

Vocaloid-HatsuneMiku-World is mine

7, I have been studying for my degree for a while now. My next course is Myth in the Greek and Roman Worlds. I have two moduals left to do. Previously I have completed
An introduction into Art and Humanities,
Homer- Poetry and Society,
5Century Athens Democracy and State
History of Medicine 1500-1930
