Let me introduce myself.
I’m Claire, I’m in my late 20’s and I’m a teacher. I haven’t always been a teacher, I studied for a degree in fashion and worked at a few London fashion magazines for a couple of years. I then had a change of direction, in my career and personal life, which brought me to the midlands. I enjoy teaching, it takes up a lot of my time, the rest of my time is spent with my boyfriend and with working on my craft and knitting projects. I was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease in June 2007 and diagnosed with Osteopenia in February 2008; my food intolerance plays a huge part in my life, especially since I’m also a pescetarian (vegetarian who eats fish) so eating out can be problematic!
My other main interest is music, I have a large and rapidly expanding music collection and some of my favourite artists are (in no particular order):
Jeff Buckley, Pulp, David Bowie, Blondie, Neil Young, The Doors, Mazzy Star, Ben Folds, Harry Connick jr., The Magic Numbers, Gene, Abraham, Sia, Sigur Ros, Bjork, Merz, Jaguar, James Brown, The Flaming Lips, Lambchop, Lamb, Moloko, Neil Finn, Badly Drawn Boy, Crowded House, Razorlight, D’Angelo, Carol King, The Bluetones, Ugly Duckling, Jamie Cullum, Norah Jones, Beck, Elbow, Doves, Kate Rogers, Scissor Sisters, Yo La Tengo, St Thomas, Ed Hardcourt, Richard Hawley, The Cure, Echo and the Bunnymen, Kate Bush, Fleetwood Mac, The Smiths, PJ Harvey, The Mull Historical Society, Belle and Sebastian, St Etienne, Primal Scream, Beth Orton, Gomez, Ian Brown, The Stone Roses, Franz Ferdinand, Turin Brakes,
