I first became @Tinkerbell_ in 2010 I’d been on twitter awhile and was looking for a new name and it was miraculously free. Tinkerbell was the name of the fist pet I remember, I was a wee young thing and she was my mum’s cat, a long haired black and white princess of a cat.
This picture was my avi which I fell in love with and that became even more special to me when JHubz had it enlarged printed and framed with the first and only rose he’s ever given me and a poem made of his tweets, as a wedding gift – he’s an utter sweetheart. I adopted him a giraffe, because who doesn’t want an adopted giraffe, well quite.
The Duchess was added to my twitter name on a sunny weekend when upon trying to exit a supermarket I found my way barred by two likely lads, ‘Mind if I squeeze by’ I enquired politely ‘Course you can Duchess’ one replied, I liked it so much I kept it and became, on Twitter at least, Tink, the Duchess which is also being phased out for TinksEyeView, my take on my husbands twitter name SharpesEyeView Xx
