A little about me

Hello there!

So I'm duck, 30, married to Andrew and happily playing at being a grown-up.

Both Andrew and myself work at a University (thankfully in different departments) and share a variety of hobbies with steam rallies and carnivals being our two big passions.

Andrew spent his formative years restoring a 1952 vintage lorry which we take to steam rallies across the South West and we're both members of a local carnival club with my photography hobby developing into the other project, 'Somerset and Wessex Carnival Photographs'  back in 1999.

Some of our other hobbies include:

cooking and baking (Andrew is the 'ready, steady, cook' guy, I'm the 'follow the recipe' gal)
stand up comedy (especially at the Edinburgh Fringe)

theatre and musicals (probably more my hobby, Andrew just goes along with it)

swimming, especially in the sea or outdoor pools and lidos (ditto, Andrew hates swimming)

sewing and cross stitch (my hobby obviously, although Andrew is a dab hand at fixing the sewing machine)

thrifting, charity shops, car boot sales

vintage fairgrounds, fairground art, penny arcade machines, ride mechanics


steam engines, both railway and traction (in fact Andrew will happily tinker with almost any type of engine)

flower and vegetable gardening (both of us are the lazy gardener variety however)

 exploring new places and discovering new things

and probably many more things I've forgotten

    One last 'hobby'...
With a fondness for organisation, spreasheets, lists and planning, a background in libraries and a distant pipe dream of becoming a Chartered Librarian - last September I decided to go back to University (via distance learning) and started an MSc in Information and Library Studies.

This, as well as a full time job and all our other hobbies and interests - madness, no?
