“Loads of websites just clogging up the internet by people just doing websites about themselves. ‘My name is Rupert. This is my cat. Here are my favourite Cure songs in order’ Who gives a fuck?”Ricky Gervais

Hi. I’m Darlene Conner.

Ok so not really, but imagine if Darlene grew up, took up crochet, got married, had babies, and drank a lot of tea. But kept that damn sassmouth.

I’m one of those people Ricky mentions up there clogging up the internet “doing websites” about myself.

VMextraBWwI am a vegetarian, mama, crochet lover, vintage collector, and a tea enthusiast. Fluent in sarcasm and a solid appreciator of dry humour.

I like the ’90s and British comedy and lace tablecloths and pretty teacups. Quite frankly the thought of chewing some flesh now makes me gag, so it seems you can turn a committed carnivore into a lentil-loving freak with a minimum of fuss. Just don’t ask me to love tofu.

I also have two kids who are the cheese to my macaroni. Biggie has just turned three, and Smalls is one and a half. They are hilarious. And I’ve no idea what I’m doing. But I am a hardcore CTFD mum.

I love bento, cheese, and stuff that smells like vanilla. Including vanilla. We’re going to travel the world. I have a bookshelf in every room and probably won’t be your friend any more if you dog-ear pages. Or if you don’t like Kevin Smith films.

Welcome aboard!
