Extended Profile

I live in London, however was brought up in Kent. I currently own a hamster, who keeps me sane! A general pre-requisite for all my pets is that they are excentric! Snowdrop is a rescue hamster and is so nosy it beggars belief. My previous hamster Ella was so lazy and spent all his time in bed, George did a good impression of tarzen and Harry used to squeek, which is very unhamster like! I also love chocolates, biscuits, cooking, cycling, getting bargains and eating out! London is ideal for all of these things!

I love reading a wide variety of books as you will see from my list of books read. I am trying to read the BBC top 200 books (2003) I have read about 102 of them now, however I suspect a new list will be out before I complete this list! I love the eclectic nature of the list, although I still struggle to classify "Winnie the Pooh" as a novel!
