Welcome! 🙂 I’m Kim, actually, it’s Kimberley but I prefer to be called 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 parents in a small village in The Cotswolds (Gloucestershire, England). Along with our fish (Biggie, Nemo, Sharkie, Darth, and Kylo), and our weather loach (Loachy). I’ve also had a tarantula named Hermy and some Great African land snails. But I’d love to add a Mexican red knee tarantula, lavender python, and bearded dragon to the family.
In my spare time I love to read and have a wide range of books on my bookshelves – yes, plural – from various genres including horror, fantasy and sci-fi. My favourite author is Stephen King and I love the Lord of the Rings. I also enjoy watching films and TV shows, and playing computer games – I guess you can say I’m a geek… If that wasn’t obvious already. 😉
