My name is Sally and I live in Horsforth, with my boyfriend Todd. I came to Leeds for University 6 years ago, fell in love with the city and never left. We used to live in Headingley (I still miss it) but have been in Horsforth for nearly a year now, and I still don't think I know the area that well, so this week will give me an opportunity to explore it more!
I work at the University of Leeds, as a Specialist Mentor for students with disabilities. My area of interest is with Autism and communication difficulties, so I'd love to hear what's going on in Leeds, in terms of support and social groups, and also with the Autism Strategy.
I sew in my spare time and catalogue my disasters on my blog, in the hope of encouraging other hapless folks to give it a go. I'd love to hear about other people's crafting disasters and share some of my own.
My boyfriend Todd is a web developer and self confessed geek, so I can often be found accompanying him to 'geek' events in bars across Leeds, seeking out new craft beers to try.
I will be leaving Leeds in September (sob) so my main aim of this week is to create a bucket list of things I have to do before I leave. All suggestions are welcome and as I try new things and go new places, I'll tell you what I think.
