Although work takes up a lot of my time, I have various hobbies and things I am interested in beyond psychology. I am a football fan, and support my local team, the Magpies (Chorley FC). I share my home with four dogs and two cats (yes, my home is very busy). I am a vegan and there is plenty of information on veganism here via Michelle's Vegan Blog.  If you have a vegan product, resource or service you would like me to promote FREE, or you are a writer, see my blog post for details.
