vampiresincowboyboots: (B&W Vampire)
It's cloudy and grey here in Birmingham, and I've got a rare Saturday afternoon off. We had a family lunch out, nothing exciting - just down the local pub, but it was nice to have the ability to take our time and enjoy spending time together.

We're now home. Chloe is stretched out on the living room floor playing with her lego. She really loves the Lego Friends sets that she's playing with the Horse Vet trailer. Two of her favourite things. Horses. Everything is about horses right now. And she wants to be a vet when she grows up.

Paul and I are watching The Originals on Netflix and he's giving me a heavenly foot rub. I'm sitting with my feet in his lap and he's laughing at me as I'm sitting here telling you about it. He's being very supportive of my attempts at this new hobby though he has no real interest in it himself.

Poppy the dog is asleep in her basket, but lookng at the clock I imagine dog, man and child will all soon start to demand food. We had a full meal earlier so I'm thinking something like cheese toasties and tomato soup; always a favourite on a chilly, lazy day

I don't actually know if I have anything in particular to say in this post but I thought I'd share a little snapshot of my afternoon

One of the things I am loving about the internet is that there are websites to track what I'm doing - fitness, food, music, books, tv/movies. I don't watch a lot of tv and movies due to a lack of time, but I listen to a lot of music and read a lot and I've been having fun getting to see my statistics.

Music
My top artists: Brantley Gilbert, Dierks Bentley, LeAnn Rimes, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Chris Young, Darius Rucker, Dixie Chicks, Kristian Bush and Little Big Town
My top tracks: Brantley Gilbert — Rockin' Chairs; LeAnn Rimes — The Story; Dierks Bentley — 5-1-5-0; Chris Young — Aw Naw; Carrie Underwood — Before He Cheats
It shouldn't come as any surprise that my top genres listened to were Country and Modern Country

Books
I read Anne Rice's Interview With The Vampire & The Vampire Lestat. Today I started reading Queen Of The Damned.
Top genres were - unsurprisngly - Horror & Vampires

Movies & TV
TV None
Movies Interview With The Vampire, Beauty & The Beast
Top genres were Fantasy & Romance

I'm interested to see what next week brings me

Happy Mothering Sunday to all the other mum's out there.

My little girl (and her daddy) made me breakfast in bed - Full English no less! - and a beautiful bouquet of flowers. I also got The Music Of Nashville S1 CD boxset and S1 of The Walking Dead on DVD. I feel very spoiled, very loved and I'm looking forward to curling up and watching that tonight after Chloe's gone to sleep.

Paul then said I could spend the day doing whatever I wanted. And honestly, I'm still sitting here in bed. I sprained my ankle yesterday afternoon at the gym so I'm sitting here with it on a pillow, listening to Sam Palladio singing to me and I've been reading The Vampire Lestat. Kind of perfect, really.

Oh my Gosh, I completely meant to post a proper introduction on Sunday but then my little girl got sick and things all went insanely busy at work and I've barely had time to sit down until right now. And here I am finally online again.

Hello, hello to everyone who's joined me on this crazy adventure! I'm not completely sure how to write an actual introduction despite having planned on doing so.

My name's Tabby, I'm 29 and I live in Birmingham, England, with my fiance Paul and our 4 year old daughter Chloe. Paul & I have known each other since we were 8 and started dating at age 14. One day we'll get married!
I'm a dance and fitness instructor. I'm also a complete water baby and keep thinking about looking into becoming a swimming instructor too.
I love country music.
I love urban fantasy and horror - especially vampires. I'm also a sucker for a good post-apocalupse/dystopia story.
I'm one of those people who will binge a whole series on Netflix, or sit up until 3am with a really good book.
I'm pretty outgoing, love people and I'm a sarcastic little bitch with a dark sense of humour. I'm pretty sure my mouth is going to be me in trouble one of these days.

Anything else anyone can think of that I should say in this introduction? Anything you're just dying to know about me?

WELCOME

Welcome to Vampires In Cowboy Boots, a personal blog owned by Tabby, hosted by Dreamwidth, and has been open since March 18th, 2017.

BACKSTORY

I started blogging, today and I am terrified. I haven't got the foggiest idea what I'm doing here. Wordpress was recommened to me and I'm not exactly tech-savvy but I'm figuring it out so far.

So why have I started a blog? Because so few of my friends in real life really have the same interests as me. They prefer Beyonce to Brad Paisley, Coronation St & The Great British Bake Off to Supernatural & The Vampire Diaries. As for going for a run on the beach or a hike in the woods... forget about it!

A colleague of mine suggested I go online to meet people and to talk to about the things I'm passionate about and here I am!


BEHIND THE NAME

Vampires. Country music. Two of my biggest passions and I do like a good pair of cowboy boots so it only seemed natural to me to put the two things together to make my website name. It may sound silly but Vampires In Cowboy Boots really does sum up my main hobbies in just four words.
