A bit of a girl
It could be generally agreed that I like shopping.
I also like soft things, shiny things and sometimes fluffy things. I like getting my nails done and wearing nice smells and I can suffer a near apoplectic fit if I can't keep my body hair under control. I wouldn't dream of going out without mascara, matching underthings (apologies - we have trod this path before), or a bag to hold the 101 vital items that I need to carry with me every day.
It could be generally agreed that I am a vain witch, vain in the sense of bothering about what I look like and vain in the sense of "I would rather pluck my eyes out with chopsticks than wear that tracksuit".
I adore watching a soppy film with chocolate and tissues to keep me company but a horror film requires all the lights on and, preferably, a man to check under the bed. I hate spiders, plumbing and anything that smells like engine oil.
Some of you might have come to the consensus that I am a bit of a girl. So why the fuck have I got a set of screwdrivers in me handbag?
