Pleased to meet you.

I may have started this blog without a proper introduction; how very rude of me:

So hi!

I really don't know why I'm writing this or why anyone would be interested (hello low self-esteem, I thought you'd raise your ugly head) but here's a little bit about me:

I'm a BSc Zoology graduate; I graduated last year. Not very surprisingly I like animals. A lot.

I'm 24. I don't know how this happened or why someone didn't try to keep me at the age of 21.

I've started worrying about sun damage and wrinkles. I have been told that I look 16 so I don't think I have too much to worry about but I like to plan ahead.

Apparently I look 16.

I'm engaged to Monsieur Squirrel. He proposed to me on the Steamboat Natchez in New Orleans, which was very nice of him. I swore a lot. I'm still not sure if I actually said yes, we're planning a wedding though, so I'm guessing I must have (after all the swearing).

Me and the Monsieur
My dream job would be in communications, marketing or PR for a conservation charity. Failing that I'll settle for cuddling baby animals all day.

I consider my pets to be part of the family. They are Cleo and Cassie; a red setter who farts a lot and a black cocker spaniel who eats a lot and Mr Spice; a cat who thinks he's a dog.

I collect moustache related merchandise (no joke). I may show this collection to you one day; you lucky lucky people.

If you leave your stationery near me I will draw a willy on it.

I am very mature for my age (see above).

If in doubt, I'm probably joking.

I'm a feminist; I respect gender differences but I believe in equality. Do with that one what you will.

My wardrobe is bursting. I like to shop and play dress-up. However when I do dress up I like to add a touch of scruff. Maybe a baggy cardigan or some messed up boots. I call it tramp chic.

My blog is called Madame Squirrel because I'm female and I can't say squirrel ( I sound like a slurring drunk when I attempt to say it, much to the amusement of everyone in the vicinity).

Rose Bud Tea
Jasmine Tea

Pillow face (when you get the lines of the pillow on your face)
Waking up
Wind (I will shout at it like a mad woman)
Pedestrians in London when I'm driving
Drivers in London when I'm walking
Tights slowly ending up around my knees in a public place meaning I can't yoink them back up (impossible to do subtly)
Pins and needles

So yeah, that's me; please be gentle.

Tell me about you! :)

Madame Squirrel.
