There's something about Mary...

Mary R. Crumpton, née Perkins
26 August
External Services:
Trained as a physicist, I then qualified as a teacher and went on to gain further qualifications in counselling and life coaching. I now work from home as a life coach and as a private tutor, running 2 businesses.

My favourite colour is purple. I love Beethoven and Doctor Who, and I also love Guylian Seashell chocolates, and a white wine called Sancerre.

I live with my lovely fiance - Tim (Timpootle), - with 2 cute cats, and our friend/lodger James (starshaped75). As well as Tim, who I have been with since 2004, I also have other partners** - more details about them within the journal itself.

Feel free to add me to your friends list without asking - I may or may not add you back ;-)

I tend to read and update LJ sporadically, sometimes posting daily and sometimes not for a couple of months. If you need to tell me something important please email me, since there is no guarantee I will see the post in your LJ. In an emergency I can be reached on 07751 696 055, or drop me a text anyway, just because...

If you'd like to know more about me than is in this brief intro, then there is a post at the top of my livejournal that you can read if you would like to. I try to keep it fairly up-to-date:

**I am polyamorous, which means I have honest, open and committed relationships with more than one person at a time, and everybody involved knows about all the others. It is not swinging, since it is more about relationships than about sex. I feel genuine love for, and committment to, the people that I am involved with. Yes, it's not your standard 2.4 children nuclear family, but it works, and it makes us all happy. There endeth Poly 101, but I am happy to answer your questions about it, if you are interested!
