10 Things You May Not Know About Me

My blog "Diary of a Dollmaker" has been neglected ever since I started it, but starting from now, I'm making a commitment to be more faithful! I’ve been meaning to write this post for months now, so finally I said tonight is the night! I’ve put my feet up, grabbed a tall glass of iced water & started typing.

I did get a little sidetracked with watching the new “I am Woman” movie about Helen Reddy (my goodness how fabulous was she? May she rest in peace xx), but I think I did ok. I love reading snippets about other creatives, so I hope you enjoy learning a little more about me too xx

 

  1. I returned to work as an employee this year for the first time in 14 years. I thoroughly enjoy going to work and can hand on heart say I’ve never enjoyed a job as much as this one (besides Upper Dhali of course!).

  2. I have Von Willebrand disease which is an inherited bleeding disorder. I have low levels of clotting protein & it takes me longer to stop bleeding.

  3. I’m the eldest of 3 girls - there’s a 6 year age gap between me & Miss Middle and 10 years between myself and Miss Youngest. The age gap was a struggle for me during my younger & teenage years - I often felt like the outsider & the one that didn’t fit with them. Thankfully the journey of “adulting” changed that 💕

  4. Fleetwood Mac is my jam. I could listen to them all day and all night for the rest of my life and never get bored of their music. I couldn’t walk or talk for days after I went to their concert due to dancing so hard & singing so loud haha! The absolute BEST music experience of my life (alongside seeing Stevie Nicks in concert and belting out Stand Back & Edge of Seventeen 🙌🏼).

  5. I became a Mum at the age of 26 and now have 3 children - 2 sons & a daughter. 

  6. Skin Cancer - I’ve had many base cell carcinoma skin cancers removed & the radiation therapy removal is horribly painful 😖 Due to my skin scarring quite thick & white, the scalpel wasn’t an option for me for my face. It’s treatment I will need to find my peace with moving forward, as for each one removed, another two arrive.

  7. Favorite food - Indian and Thai comes in at a very close second!

  8. I have developed Clair senses. Clairvoyance (seeing), Clairaudience (hearing), Clairsentience (feeling) & Clairalience (smelling). It started many years ago, however became more apparent when I was pregnant with my first child 20 years ago. With each pregnancy, new Clair senses presented. There’s only been two unpleasant spiritual experiences, the rest have been lovely. Some stay a while, some pass through quickly. Now I’m working in a historical building, I’ve had two new spirits visit which has been a wonderful surprise and I’m looking forward to learning more about who they may be.

  9. My favorite movies of all time are Grease, Xanadu, Wizard of Oz, Mary Poppins, Anne of Green Gables, The Greatest Showman & Bohemian Rhapsody.

  10. I’m a terrible cook and no, I’m not ashamed to admit it 😂 It’s not all bad though - I can cook a mean lasagna & roast lamb plus a pretty delicious cob loaf dip, but anything other than those, it’s definitely a task delegated to others.
