(Note – this is going to be one of those getting to know you posts, so if you are looking for jewellery stuff, best for you to look in the archives 😉 )

I know I’ve said this before but I love my job! I love the face that I can bend shape and join metal to make it into a beautiful item. Having said that there are only so many hours in the day that you can fret over a design and stare into an open flame without your partner wondering if you are turning pyromaniac.

Saying that I do love to craft though, so in my downtime I put something on the TV and then knit or play on my ipad, or sew or draw or … you get the idea. The TV is constant, Sarah could be doing one of eleventymillion crafts that are available to her sitting down.

So what do I watch? I love the TV show Bones. There is crime, ick, gore, the occasional shooting and a pretty boy to look at. I also enjoy Supernatural which is like Bones but with a paranormal twist with two pretty boys to look at. Mrs Browns Boys is a favourite if I need a laugh. Brendan O’Carroll is a comic genius.  Another show I could watch over and over again is Charmed. There is something about a trio of sisters that save the world on a weekly basis that just screams girl power.

I have a confession to make too … I have an addiction to what my sister and I affectionately call Crap TV. This is tv that you wouldn’t normally admit to watching in public, that you just sit in PJ’s and watch and marvel that this could be happening somewhere in the world. Currently on my watch list are Breaking Amish, Little Women LA, Bring Back Borstal  and there is this new one I’m watching about a group of girls becoming nuns … basically reality tv that sucks out your brain. I love it!

So that is me, that is what I do in my ‘spare’ time. What about you? What do you do when you are not making or in the day job?
