First blog post

So this is me. This is my blog.

First posts are awful, don’t you think? One only hopes most people miss this on their first stumble across the site, and only make their way to it much much later – when we’re much better acquainted and my early missteps can be forgiven!

So who am I?
I’m a scientist and a teacher, but nothing like you would expect from either of those terms.
I like flouncy dresses – and leather jackets.
I love to read – long books that I can lose myself in, popular science non-fiction, Shakespeare… and cheesy chick lit.
I love sweet treats of all shapes and sizes – especially cupcakes, donuts and fudge. And a good cup of tea.
I love bright colours – and all things cute and kitsch

I’m not as much of a girl as you would expect though. I’m also a rugby fan (Cardiff RFC for life!), an engineer, a mechanic and a gardener. I enjoy a good game of chess or sudoku.

You can expect me to talk about a good mix of that – science, books, dresses, rugby, shoes, science fiction and cupcakes

Settle in, the kettle’s on.
