5 Facts About Me (some of which I probably shouldn’t tell you but I’m going to anyway):

  1. I share life with five rabbits called Fifer, Poppy, Timmy, Cleo and Sebastien.  Two of them (Cleo and Timmy) are houserabbits and the other three live outdoors in a purpose-designed bunny village in my back garden.  This was possible because…
  2. I own my own house.  I bought a house with my future-husband-to-be when I was 26.  This was such an achievement since I was homeless at 18, but at the same time it has come with a few downsides, but the best part is not having to deal with/be dependent on any more shitty landlords.

    All the women, who independent, throw your hands up at me!
  3. I love cars (but ironically I get car sick).  I love working on my car, I love driving my car, I love travelling to awesome places in my car, I love dreaming about which cars I could buy if I had any money at all…  cars cars cars.  I wish they were more environmentally friendly though.
  4. I am married.  My first wedding anniversary was in June.  I never planned to be married but I’m not complaining!  I was determined not to just disappear into the life-role, but I wanted to be my own person… but married.  Just like my childhood role model, Emma Peel from The Avengers (TV series, nothing to do with Marvel).  I get annoyed that TV (and well-meaning older relatives, and actually, society in general) leads us to believe that once a woman is married her sense of personhood dissolves into the household.  It doesn’t have to be that way!!  I am still an independent lady with my own mind, I still travel solo when I want to, I just happen to share life with someone else while I choose to do so.  People make out it’s such a big deal, but it’s basically like having a boyfriend only if one of us dies the other one has less paperwork.
  5. I have an obsession with soya sauce.  If it’s not on my rice/noodles, I don’t want to know!  Well… unless I’m not eating Oriental food.

  1. That is SO awesome that you own your own home at 26! That’s an accomplishment. I don’t think I’ll get to say the same, lol. I probably won’t own a home in Vancouver until I’m like 90. I also love that your an independent lady! It’s so true. I hate how society assumes us to be instant homemakers after marriage.

    • Aww beagles are great – I used to have a beagle and he was so good with bunnies (and my Jack Russell, when she was a puppy, used to herd the baby rabbits back into their house when they escaped, she was like a little bunny shepherd). I think it depends on the dog’s personality though!

      • Your beagles sound awesome! Mine are both sadly gone now, and it’s 14 years since DiDi herded the baby bunnies (all also dead). That’s the trouble with pets 😦 I have different buns now though (and I wouldn’t risk introducing a puppy these days; its so rare to find the right dog/bunny combo). 🙂 I do miss walkies – not quite the same with a rabbit LMAO!
