And the unofficial one:

I'm a 'born-again' Yorkshire woman with a quirky home in beautiful Hebden Bridge, W.Yorkshire. I love reading and am a member of two book clubs. I enjoy creative writing and have been threatening to write a book for the last 20 years. I'm also 'crafty' which doesn't mean I'm untrustworthy, but enjoy a variety of handcrafts such as sewing and picture-framing. I'm a lover of all types of jazz as well as many other types of music. I'm also a dog lover, especially lurchers.

And the unofficial one:

I love dancing, especially Biodanza and 5 rhythms, and spend much of my spare time attending festivals in the UK and Europe. In common with many Aussies, I'm passionate about travelling and have visited many, many countries and have not stopped yet. I believe strongly in the mind and body's ability to heal and I'm a big supporter of complementary therapies including nutritional therapy and Shamanism.
