Introduction for Torialou
I am a 36 year old female from York in the North East of England, UK. I do not currently have an occupation, I am recovering from an accident at work which caused quite a few health issues. My job prior to the accident was working in administration for the NHS. I am passionate about theatre and once recovered I have a job lined up working at my local theatre working front of house, which is usher work, snacks and bar work. I am animal mad, when I was growing up I wanted to be a vet, I currently have a 4 year old cocker spaniel and a 35 year old Horsfield tortoise. My favourite food is very unhealthy, a good old fish, chips and peas dinner with a cup of tea, I always treat myself whenever I am near the seaside! My favourite drink is something I have already mentioned a good old cup of tea, I am an Earl Grey drinker, I just love the fruity citrus taste. My hobbies are painting, mostly acrylics because they are so versatile and I can use them on many surfaces, my latest project was painting up a photo scrap book as a gift for a friend. I drew then painted the designs on the front and back pages. I also enjoy knitting, I am currently making myself a set of leg warmers for a fancy dress costume and a set of gloves for my best friend for Christmas. My original training and jobs were in Information technology and I still enjoy making the odd website which really is more of a hobby now, I also do something called usability testing, which is basically just testing out the usability or suitability of websites. My last hobby is my reason for registering here, I enjoy reading and writing about opinions, products, places and ideologies and I am looking for a new platform to do so, a friend suggested this site and so here I am!
