Hello! I’m Claire, I live in a little town near Glasgow, with my husband of 9 years,with this lovely scenery on my doorstep. I’m originally from Ayrshire and have lived in various places, including Guernsey, just about every part of Glasgow and Bangkok.
I work as a Production Manager for a TV company and I also run my handmade interiors and craft kits company, The Bellwether. When I am not doing that, I write at Super Cute Kawaii. Oh, and at Craft Tuts+. And when I’m not doing that, I walk my massive Labrador. I don’t sleep much. I have no formal qualifications in writing, television production or craft and I don’t have a degree. I like to think I am a good example of hard work winning out over fancy intials after your name.
I like to read about many and various topics, including but not limited to Victorian social history, abandoned buildings, the Tudors and how things work. I like to learn new things. I also like to watch TV, not just at work where I’m paid for it – I’m a sucker for a box set.
If I won the lottery, I’d buy an old Victorian painted lady house in San Francisco and open a shop or maybe a hotel. I’d love to live in America. It will happen one day.
The five words that sum me up best are does not suffer fools gladly. I swear too much. I wear glasses for looking at computers. I love ponies and I do not believe for a minute that narwhals are real.
I’m blogging every day in May as part of this, so this is my introduction. Find out more here.
