I'm a 27 year old girl from the UK who has been off and on LJ for years and decided to make a new journal as a clean break. I'm recently married, come from a close but crazy and currently expanding family and am luckily (but not-so-happily) employed. I have some ongoing health struggles. Books are my passion but shoes are my weakness. I love to read and shop. I'm also a TV addict, music enthusiast, sometimes gamer, and incredibly clumsy. I have a house full of animals who are my world and I volunteer with animals in various places and ways. I am looking to meet other LJers who share some of my interests (see profile) and/or can relate. I don't mind where people are from, what they do for work/fun, and am happy to be open minded about their opinions if they'll do the same with mine. I love getting to know people from all walks of life but would be particularly happy to meet some fellow LJers close to my back yard (England).
