Joined 10 years ago from Hampshire, England. UK
My name is Mandy and I live in Hampshire, England.
I have 4 children; Michael 31, Heidi 25, George 21 and Josephine 18. I am extremely proud of them and they are my world.
I am divorced from my childrens father, but my partner Tony of 10 years, lives here with me
My interests include photography - I'm no professional, but I love taking photos and often see the world around me as a photo opportunity! I particularly love photographing the sea in all its moods.
I enjoy a good film - mainly horrors or thrillers.
I enjoy crafty things, like knitting and sewing, and making soy wax melts to use in oil burners which I sell.
I am very into animal rights - I fundraise for rescue dogs in particular, but all animals are worthy and I despise animal testing, fox hunting, badger culling, horse/greyhound racing and eating or wearing any animals flesh.
I was raised a Jehovah's Witness by my mother, along with my brother. My childhood was one I do not care to remember too much about as it was very sad, lonely and miserable. At 16, I was disfellowshipped from the religion and also from home. In time I realised that it was a good thing I was no longer involved in such a damaging, controlling, evil cult. I have written my story here descibing my childhood.
I look forward to meeting new people here and sharing experiences.
