Hi, I'm a mature student about to enter my 3rd and final year on a joint honours English Literature and Creative Writing degree. Doing pretty well so far, and determined not to slip backwards. I enjoy writing, obviously, but also create greetings cards, and recently bought some acrylic paints to dabble with. I used to knit, crochet and sew, but do little of that nowadays. I'm vegan, and really enjoy my food :-) I have a small veg patch in the garden, where I grow simple crops like runner beans, tomatoes, peppers, swiss chard, spinach, carrots, lettuces and herbs. You can't beat the flavour of food that's travelled from soil to table in less than half an hour - yummy.
