About Me
Hello there.

Sometimes it's hard to tell the story of your life. There are so many insignificant details that have occurred to you and it's a question of whether these things shaped you into the person you have become. All the details others may find questionable for inclusion in a life story, I find are the things which change you the most.

I grew up in the country, a little out of the way of Faversham, Kent, surrounded by the wafting aromas of my mother's baking and the sweet scents of my father's daffodils. Because I grew up with no friends of my own age, I didn't realise that my parents were a little bit, well you could say they were a bit "potty". Neither of them held jobs in the Muggle community nor the wizarding community, they would rather devote themselves to their hobbies. Mother obsessed herself with re-painting the walls of our house in bright colours. Every week there would be another room cordoned off, the acrid smell of her home-made paints reeking through the house. Father. Well, Father tended to keep himself outside, looking after his unusually long-lived daffodils. They grew to be the brightest yellows and stood about a metre, which is a very uncommon height. Every night he would bring in a bunch for Mother, tied together by his dirty white gardening twine. And every night she would smudge a bit of her paint on his nose, and kiss him, never failing to make me squirm and hide behind the couch.

You could say I had a happy childhood.
