It is hard to know how much to write in these sections...
I have read ones which go on forever and ever and ever (you get my drift) and give enough detail for me to have a fairly good stab at stealing their identity. Nobody wants that. Especially me.
On the other hand, if you've gone to the great effort of clicking on this tab, you must want to know something.
So I will give you the bare bones with a bit of flesh on them and you can decide what you want to absorb (or not as the case may be).
So this is me, or at least this is the artistic impression of what an expensive photographer thinks I look like. Let me clarify now...I did not hire an expensive photographer for my blog images. Truth be told, I never expected to ever hire an expensive photographer. But I got married recently and this was one of the shots we received.
So you know something about me already...I am a married man (technically that is two things, if the photo is clear enough to make out that I am indeed male!)
I'm also 23, which on the surface seems relatively young to be married. Certainly, that's what I get told often enough. Not obscenely young, but enough for checkout girls to take a double-glance at my shiny, new wedding ring. But you can't help when you fall in love, can you?
The Old 'Ball and Chain'
So in March 2013, I married the love of my life, Alice. I am never sure how comfortable she is about me talking about her on here so I shall keep it brief, but the truth is it is impossible to talk about my life without going on about her. She inspires everything that I do, and is more supportive than I can put into words.
We met almost 6 years ago, when we both worked part-time at a clothes store. She was 16 at the time and if it hadn't been socially unacceptable I would have proposed after a week.
Simply put: I love her.
You know how in the Bible there is reference to the 'Holy Trinity'? Well it's similar in our household. I say 'similar' but really I just mean to say that there are 3 of us in the house. It's really nothing like the Bible. Also, as a side-note, I realise the last comment made me sound religious. I am not, although I have no issue with those that are, providing it doesn't disturb other people's lives. 'Live and let live' seems to be a good motto to me.
So anyway, Bella is our final bit of the very simple jigsaw. Bella, before we go any further is our dog. She is a Lurcher crossed with something else, maybe Collie or Alsatian. Whatever she is, she is beautiful.
One day we want to have children, but until that day Bella has become our daughter-substitute. We are clinically insane when it comes to raising her, but in a good way (honest!). She means the world to us.
The blogs will cover this a lot more, but for me. writing is the one thing I feel I am meant to do. Not in a 'God-Given Talent' kind of way, but in the way that makes me feel more significant when I do it. I want to be an author desperately so hopefully something will happen with that. I'll keep you posted.
So that is me right now. I completely ignored my own advice of keeping this short and I assume you nodded off halfway through but I enjoyed the writing process. I hope you did too.
