I’m Nikki, a.k.a. The Witch. I am a mother, novice blogger, incurable romantic, and eternal optimist. I am so        non-20130815_172910-1photogenic that I look  better as a caricature, hence the image. Born in England, I  have  lived in Gibraltar for over 30 years.

 My shoulders are double-jointed, which means I could escape from a straight jacket  should  the need ever arise. I often find I have spoken aloud something that was meant to  remain  just a thought, resulting in anything from stunned silence to hysterical laughter,  depending  on the audience. And apparently, I wrestle marauding aliens while I sleep,    judging by my  appearance first thing in the morning.

                                                                       What else do you need to know?

I have a filthy giggle, and an enduring love for my leather jacket and Doc Martens. I hold out very little hope of ever scooping the jackpot in any lottery, since the only thing I have ever won in my life was a very large Orkney cheese. Men have always regarded me as one of the boys (blithely unaware of my yearning to be a sex symbol) and have always been impressed by my ability to down a pint of beer in one go. Strangely my fragrant mother is  rather less impressed by this. Or by the rather large tattoo on my lower back.

                                                                     What do I write about in my Blog?

Anything. Everything. Whatever I think someone may enjoy reading. I also have a guest contributor,  Robert Rabbit, Esquire (Bob), who very kindly allows me to publish his letters to a Warlock I love dearly.

                           So come in, have a good look around, and feel free to tell me what you think!

    • Thank you!! It even raised a wry smile on my daughters face, a major achievement, believe me there is nothing more difficult than gaining the approval of a budding neurologist, who already has you earmarked as her first case study!

  2. Really love this. I had a giggle. Then read your post about injecting your brain and did the nervous not sure if that’s real giggle. Can’t wait to read more and follow your journey.


  3. Can you hear me laughing? Perhaps I could learn a thing or two from you – I’m still holding on to the hope of winning the lottery. Although, it’s a case of hope against hope: I hardly ever get around to buying a ticket!
    BTW I like what you have done with the widgets, especially the photo gallery!


  4. Wow! I like how you construct your ideas in a very entertaining way. And you’re vocabulary is excellent. This is no embellishment, believe me. Expect me to be an avid follower of your blog! 😀
