About Me

My name's Victoria. I'm a twenty-year-old  university student. I'm from Manchester but live in Ceredigion for eight months of the year. I am ultimately a home-bird. I get anxious and lonely if I'm away from my loved ones for too long. Don't get me wrong, I love the destination but hate the travelling.

I adore well made clothing, true photography (as in talented photography not editing the hell out of something), handmade gifts, handwritten letters and cheesecake. I love a wonderful book with a shocking twist, people with a sense of humour, spending simple evenings with true friends and, more than anything, the amazing feeling of recalling a memory and laughing as much now as you did then. I collect empty coffee jars with the intent of making something fabulous that is yet to materialise. You probably shouldn't ask me to recommend a film because I have a massively eclectic taste that my boyfriend refers to as 'crap'.

I could not live without silence but I could happily live without music.

I'm not a fan of tomatoes. I hate tomatoes about as much as I hate cats. I sunburn really easily and then never tan. I'm dyslexic and it winds me up. I'm really not a fan of people I can't trust and it's perhaps why I only consider a few people to be friends. I don't like driving, I don't like ice, I don't like flies and I don't like bad grammar. I don't like people that are given every opportunity in life but fail to make the effort to do anything.

The idea for Operation Victoria originated by my love of completing things in a timely and correct manner. I don't like projects to drag on for too long and I prefer to get things done and out of the way as soon as possible. Hence, I inevitably try to accomplish projects with military precision. This blog is a collection of my thoughts, feelings, photographs and craft projects and I would appreciate that, should you use my material, you would reference me appropriately. If you don't, it's essentially theft. At the end of the day, this is my blog and I shall write what I wish to. If you're unhappy with what you read then feel free to tell me why but you shouldn't expect me to retract my own opinions on my own domain.
