Misadventures In Miscellany are the latests exploits and general shenanigans of Claire. She is 32, originally from London but now resides in place that goes by the name of Teesside (in the North East of England). It is home to a rather large chemical industry, UK High Street of the Year (Yarm, 2013 – Champions!) and where the ‘Parmo’ is the culinary delicacy of choice. When I first arrived at Eaglescliffe train station back in 2006, someone had kindly spray painted ‘Welcome To Hell’ on the platform where I’d stepped off the train and I knew that very moment I would make this place home. And for 8 years now I have, I’ve settled in rather well & I love it here!
My blog is simply my own unique take on the world; I may have a chemistry degree (I work as a scientist) but I also possess a poetic licence! My general rule of thumb is the quirkier the better…
My motivation for starting this blog was intially to share my experiences of ‘starting fresh’ and relocating to a new area. What I’ve learnt since starting my blog however, is that I much prefer simply entertaining and inspiring people through my ideas and observations about things, making them chuckle, even if it’s just because of how bad my jokes are. I’m also looking for some audience participation; do you have any suggestions for things to add to my ‘top tip’ lists or any of your own experiences that you’d like me to reblog?
