I don't consider music a hobby, I think it's an essential – make up my own songs too. Mostly blues.
We had my aunty's 80th in a little folk pub – once I was in I couldn't move, so there was no way I could've got in for one of the concerts. If I can't get to any family always record/tell me about them afterwards while I go: "You went to WHAT ??!!"
Love folklore & fantasy. Currently trying to read the 50 Shades trilogy, but it's not the sort of fantasy I want in my life & I wouldn't even recommend it if it was free cos it's so boring (luckily it was part of a book-sharing scheme) I read anything; the Sun, fairy tales, womens' mags, rock mags
I love jewellery & design my own, then someone helps me make it cos my hands aren't as good as they could be – meaning loads of stretchy strings of beads so I can put them on. If you ever want to make me really happy, tell me you're having a jewellery clear-out!
Make cards too – I made a card for dad's bday with tons of folklore references & a poem about him getting me into said music & bringing us a lot closer than we used to be. He's still got it.
The worrying thing is that somebody who knew me WELL thought I was 45 & I'm actually 29 (but then I did have one of my smocks on at the time) !
