Some things you might not know about me:
- I am a compulsive buyer but detest shopping
- My favourite flowers are gerbera daisies
- I don't talk to my grandparents enough, and I hate that
- I horde books that I've never read
- My spelling and grammar are becoming awful. I blame the internet
- I own 2 evening gowns
- I ALWAYS look on the bright side of life
- I still sleep with the bear I was given for Valentine's Day when I was 16, though the guy is long gone
- My favourite smell is freshly showered skin
- I adore quizzes, but am supremely bad at them
- The thing I miss most about being coeliac is doughnuts
- I have been on several holidays abroad, completely on my own
- My favourite artist is Salvador Dalí, I almost had to sleep rough in a Spanish town square but it was worth it to see his house
- I write lists, a lot. The last list like this was more of a poem in bullet format, called 'I Hate'. It wasn't about me, and I lost it.
- I get insomnia
- I have attempted to learn 6 languages other than English, with varying levels of success
- I am on Photobox, yes I am

    "Catriona inspired me with her tales of saying yes to everything.

    I try live by this philosophy every day now."

    "What took me so long to write this. Possibly you have stunned me into silence or I am in a permanent state of awe. Maybe it is your kindness, that gentle touch that could quiet even the most savage beast.
    Each day there is a rainbow created by the rain at dawn. It is beautiful, colourful and there is without doubt a pot of gold at the end of it.
    And for those of you who vainly search for that precious gift, look no further. Just browse through these images and let that rain cleanse you to your very soul, but be sure to leave a comment or how else shall she return the compliment."

    "Catriona's photostream is fun, fresh and her creativity is limitless. Her work has a rare sense of humour which is lacking in most other photographers works and not only that - but she's a lovely lass as well!

    Keep up the good work hunny.

    David J. Gaunt says:

    "Although she'll never admit it or take any praise from me, I honestly think she is one of the most creative photographers I've seen. She consistently produces something unusal and of awesome quality. I'm playing catch up in so many ways with this girl, she's great :)"

    "Catriona is easily the best thing about Scotland. Unfortunately she's too modest to ever mention that to you."
