I'm a nearly 32 year old (in 3 weeks) mother of one ds (6 months). Based in London and North Dorset, but want to be in Dorset full time. Married for 2 1/2 years (been together for seven) to my genuinely darling dh...very loved up.
Training to be a psychotherapist (am half way through and going to start next half in January 2004) but SAHM at the moment. Used to be Marketing Manager for record company, which is how i met dh. Haven't been on MN for very long (3 months or so) but am bit like an over excited puppy about it, so have been posting a lot.

Favourite smell: newly cut grass
Favourite food: cheese
Favourite drink: red wine/vodka tonic
(Borrowing a bit from spacemonkey in terms of format)
On my bedside table: Steve Biddulph/Gina Ford/Tracey Hogg/Penelope Leach (but seriously, read too too many baby books, at least i'm borrowing them from the library now rather than buying them all), Zoe Heller, Luke Sutherland.
In my CD player: Devendra Banhart (lovely album, but only heard of it as on dh's label), but might just as well be Blood on the Tracks Dylan or the Black album Jay-Z
Wish I could be: me, thin! or Germaine Greer (think she gets mellower, funnier and lovelier as she gets older)
Flaws: Over-opinionated, over-intense, can't keep my mouth shut when i should, loads more but would get boring
Makes me laugh: ds and dh and sadly myself (usually cause i can't believe i'm being such a numpty), also my cousin vinnie and eddie izzard
Makes me cry: Iraq, racism, not enough sleep, loads of things
Phobias: torture and amputation, but hey, who isn't scared of those?? i'm sounding freaky now huh?
Ethnic Origin: mother 2nd gen polish, father 1st gen Vietnamese/German, i was born in France.

Hi Sophable. When you say you are based in London and North Dorset, does that mean you spend the weekends in Dorset and the weeks in London? Or do you just go tot London when you need to? How long is the commute?

Glad to see someone else has a wonderfully hybrid ancestry!

By the way, I found your advice on the Relate thread useful - am currently going through couple counselling with dh - and have just been through the "tension with the counsellor" stage! But last night was much more positive.

A birthday eh? Might have to drag you out for that one...

Don't think you mentioned your dh was in the biz too - am being nosey now and want to know his name! (Email!)

PS: bra shopping has been postponed until today - wanna come?

PPS: You are not overweight. You are lovely.
