I was spawned a blue-noser from eclectic UK parents. On traveling many thousands of kilometers before my first birthday, we settled in the most beautiful city in the world. It was here that my genetic pre-disposition towards clouds and rain was elevated to the point where three days of sunshine in a row make me distinctly uncomfortable.
I moved out when I was 17 after an interesting home life during high school. After a period of searching that consumed the next 5 years, I found a place and person I was comfortable with. I'm still there. I am the proud owner of a Bachelor of Education, triple minor of History, English and Learning Disabilities and am done with post-secondary school until I decide to do my Masters. I am gainfully employed with the Burnaby school district as a substitute Liar-to-Children, although that is taking a backseat to my son for the next little while. I am married to a wonderful man who helps to keep me level and we had our first child, Rhys Derek, on Monday, February 5th, 2007 at 4:51 am, weighing 7 lbs 15.5 oz. We recently bought a house in Ladner and I'm exceptionally content with life.
And some lyrics to define one of the most positive aspects of my relationship with my Husband. From Default's song "Count on Me"
Because you know that life ain't over yet I'm here for you so don't forget You can count on me Cause’ I will carry you till you carry on Anytime you need someone Somebody strong to lean on Well you can count on me to hold you till the healing is done And every time you fall apart you can hide here in my arms And you can count on me to hold you till that feeling is Gone so you can live today Seems so long to yesterday Keep on counting on me to carry you till you carry on
