Nice to meet you
Thanks for popping in!
My name is Sherry...
...like the drink
In fact I thought about calling this blog ‘like the drink’ as those words have been like a triple barrelled middle name for my whole life. I used to hate being called Sherry as a child, because it was different and no-one wants to be different when you’re 13. Now, however I love it.
I was actually even named after the drink. My family were out one evening in the pub while my mum was pregnant (it was the 70’s after all), and my nan turns to my mum and says “ooooh, this Sherry’s nice!” My mum, head full of baby names took it as a suggestion and the rest, as they say is history.
As long ago as I care to remember I always liked to write. As a child I would scribble down short stories, as an angst ridden teen it was mainly poetry and now as a fully fledged adult with several layers of life and sarcasm under my belt, I have turned more to lifestyle. Other than being a life-long ink slinger, I’ve got a background in marketing, fitness and cake design, and my passions are mostly going to be featured on these pages, so if you want to know what they are, then jump on in.
I’ve had short stories, reviews and lifestyle pieces published in several magazines and I’m now trying my hand at a proper fictional novel, which I have to be honest, is scaring the absolute crap out of me. There is nothing more terrifying than a blinking cursor on a blank screen….
And then there’s this….the blog. For me, it’s a place where I can share my top tips and waffle unhindered by anything other than my dog needing a walk; and for you, it’s a place where hopefully you will laugh, share, and maybe sometimes be a teensy bit inspired.
Anyway, enough of all that….who fancies a drop of Sherry?
