On Swapbot I am Pookiepooka and this is a few things about me.....
I live in the UK in Devon but was born in London.
I write under a pen name. I have had a few online publications as well as a few comedy scripts. Some having been made into animations. I originally trained in performing arts wanting to act but lost my love for the stage along the way and after a brief stint as a performance artist, decide to get into writing.
I do a lot of crafty stuff but still class myself as a beginner. I love to cook and have a sweet tooth.
I live with my Father as I am now his carer. My Mother passed away in April this year. I also have a dog who likes the sound of his own voice.
I like to keep fit but am still a curvy girl. I used to be a very big girl indeed so this is nothing. I could probably get down to a UK size 10 but that would mean giving up all the bad food I love.
I can be extremely girlie and at the same time, tend to get on with guys better as they geek out with me more and get my evil sense of humour.
I am currently learning Japanese as I intend one day to visit Japan which is my dream holiday. It's hard to learn but I will get there.
I am Christmas mad and known as the Christmas Kween by most who know me.
I am a winter person and love rain and the cold. I hate summer and get very depressed.
I am very intro kitsch and retro design and love old toys and TV shows.
I love music and can be a real music geek. I like anything from Electro to rock to disco to classical. Playing music however escapes me. I have tried to learn but have been begged to stop!
I can be a proper airhead sometimes and get really confused. I am very clumsy.
I hate having my photo taken so I avoid cameras and I hate to discuss my age as I was raised to believe it's rude. All I will say is I am an 80s child.
My main philosophy in life is to always be a child. When we stop playing, we lose our creativity.
Yes, the pic is drawing of myself by a friend :)
Hope to speak to you all soon X
