As the title suggests, I am actually a Mother of three beautiful young girls and as the title also suggests all three of them can be little devils when they want to be!
It’s difficult at times. I want them to be completely independent and not have to rely on their parents so I have to be hard on them. I also have to let them off the leash a little but in today’s society that is a scary thing to have to do.
Their Dad has a difficult time with that one!
Before I had my family I was a Graphic Designer and a Customer Service assistant/supervisor.
I was a stay home Mum for over 10 years and then ‘need’ forced me back into work.
I was in the right place at the right time and kind of ‘fell’ into Clinical Support work.
I love my job. If I had found it 20 years ago I think I would probably be a nurse now.
That said, after 9 years of learning on the job, I am now taking a Foundation Degree to become a Nurse Associate.
I never in my wildest dreams thought I would be going to University at 48 years old!!
As much as I love my job, I love being a Mum more so I would give it up in a heartbeat if finances allowed.
OK, now for the geeky stuff.
I met my husband because of Star Trek!
Way back in 1990 when Star Trek Next Gen made it to our screens, the inner geek I had been hiding my entire life decided that enough was enough. As I had no family interested in everything Sci Fi I decided to join a club to find some like minded people.
That is where I met my husband. He was the ‘Captain’ of the club.
We married in 1994 and we carried on attending conventions and multi media shows right through to around 2007.
It was during those years I developed a computer artwork business that allowed us to sell at these shows. This helped to fund us actually attending the shows.
Unfortunately this became very difficult to do after the kids started coming along and towards the end I was simply selling on Ebay.
The BBC decided to ‘pounce’ on me for selling ‘Dr Who’ artwork and that was the final nail in the coffin.
So I had to find a real job and here I am as a Trainee Nursing Associate.
I’m still a geek at heart.
You will get sick of me blogging about current obsessions like Star Wars and Star Trek and anything Marvel and DC.
This leads me onto beautiful men.
You will see from my blog that I will occasionally (OK, quite a lot really!) do a ‘dish of the week’ post.
This will be a man, who for whatever reason I find extremely attractive. Sometimes I can actually develope quite an obsession which is exactly what I have done with ‘Adam Driver’ at the moment.
The new villain of Star Wars has completely taken me by surprise.
I have started doing a Dishette of the week but need to work a little harder on that one as there are some really beautiful women out there too!
That is really me in a nutshell.
