1. Introduction

Here is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin.
A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh

I am fairly narcissistic and quite a bit of a nerd and so a lot of my life is out there online, it still feels odd to write an introduction – it was odd to write the About page way back whenever I started blogging (and however many revisions have gone on since then), but if you think about it Introductions are awkward and it’s fairly universal.

Job interviews are introductions, as are first dates, meeting ‘the parents’, a first day at a new school or university, moving home, public speaking… all awkward.

There have been a lot of introductions in my life. Make what assumptions you like. But since we are starting out, here is a meme. Which is a cheaters way of blogging and I really shouldn’t (as that is quite against the point of this exercise)

Name: Rebecca

Married: 3yrs and a few days to Geoff

Kids: No

Religion: Christian (although I generally roll with one of those mantras about it being more about relationship than religion however there is still merit and value in tradition (some) and liturgy (also some))

Whereabouts: Melbourne, Australia

Grew up: Solomon Islands

Family: Parents + twin + 2x little sisters + inlaws

Job: Graphic Designer

Drink: Coffee, Gin & Tonic, Tea (other things too)

Eat: Food (pies, lamb shanks etc… hearty food is best)

Guilty Indulgence: Terrys Chocolate Orange, Hot Jam Donuts… Gilmore Girls

Do: write, photograph, read, read, read, hunt for bargains, design, cafes

Love: God, Geoff, The Hobbit, sleeping, thinking, reading, friends, blogs, vintage bargains

Yes, that was sufficiently a post to demonstrate bump, bump, bump and the awkwardness of introductions. If there’s anything else you wish to question or have me expand on, here I am (as I have already explained): slightly narcisstic and a nerd and so will readily reply to your comments.
