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 read on my many journeys between Kings X and Leeds. 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 Ozzies, I'm passionate about travelling and have visited ? 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.

And the unofficial one:

And the unofficial one:

I love reading as well as cinema and live arts. I used to live in Brighton, which is a little similar to parts of W.Yorkshire, but am now happily settled in the North. I'm passionate about dogs and run a dog-walking business which keeps me pretty fit.
