About

So, I grew up wanting to be Carrie Bradshaw but somehow ended up somewhere between Miss Moneypenny and Gunther from Friends; I've paid most of my bills either by filing and typing, or making coffee, and my creative endeavours have always been my little bit on the side.

As for some of my other interests... Baking, books, coffee, comics, fashion, gender, languages, queerness, swearing and writing. I have rather unhealthy obsessions with cats, fried chicken, housework, pencils, polka dots, redheads and teapots.
