Welcome! 🙂 I’m Kim, actually it’s Kimberley but I prefer to be calles Kim. I also go by Kimmy, Kimbo, Gizmo and Chimmy or Chimmykins; the latter two being the inspiration for my blog’s name “Chimmyville”, a combination of my nickname and the French word ‘Ville’ meaning town or place.
Chimmyville: Ma petite ville sur le web
Chimmyville has been around in some form since 11th August 2005, starting as a place to store my pixel creations and creative writing and developing into the lifestyle blog you see today.
I live with my partner and our fish, shrimp and weather loaches in a small town in The Cotswolds (Gloucestershire, England). I also have some Great African Snails which are at my parents house (due to the pets clause in our tenancy agreement). I also had a tarantula named Hermy.
I love to read and have a wide range of books on my bookshelves – yes, plural – from various genres including horror and sci-fi. I also enjoy watching films and TV shows on Netflix or Sky and playing computer games – I guess you can say I’m a geek… If that wasn’t obvious already. 😉
