Hello all, been using Monzo for about six months, originally dipping my toe in the water using my account just for ‘pocket money’… so impressed I’ve just gone full Monzo.
A bit about me. I’m a northern bloke with a girls name (no, I’m not sharing it with you but you can have a guess)… it’s been a character building experience carrying that burden around with me. My parents were told I would never speak when I was born and whilst thats proved false I’m a relatively quiet person.
I’m not outwardly sociable but I’m trying, I don’t like being centre of attention, nor making decisions, but I do the occasional spot of Soul / Funk DJing around pubs and bars in Sheffield… proper old school vinyl, none of this CD / laptop nonsense. My playlist is always worked out waaaay in advance to get around the decision making difficulties.
I enjoy running and travelling, I’m off to the Norwegian Fjords in September on a cruise… my first cruise so I’m a little nervous what it has in store for me. Should be good anyway. I love City Breaks and I think I’d like to combine running and travelling by doing overseas half marathons (not full marathons… I’m not a sadist).
As with many others on here, I also recently discovered a liking for hugs… I audibly commentate and rank the hugs in real time, which is awkward if the hugger is of low standard. I don’t mince my words. My favourite hug was with my gay mate at work, confident on approach, perfect mix of firm and tender touch with a reassuring weight to it and an appreciative smile upon completion.
I have three cats, four if you include Professor Claws who decided to move out when we got a new door and the catflap changed… we still see her around but she’s not been home in over a year. I also have three fish and one human child. The child is 13 and has been around the cats too long as she’s started to develop an aloofness and mirrors the cats in terms of only really seeming to need me to feed her, otherwise she’ll only be friendly with me on her terms. It’s all good though.
Anyway, enough now. It’s good to be here.
