    Harold Godwinson was the last of the Saxon kings who died heroically at the Battle of Hastings. I joined this forum on October 10th so I think this must have been in the back of my mind when choosing a username.

    My username is an AngloSaxon name I saw once and instantly liked. My avatar is now Herne the Hunter, a legendary English figure of obscure origins. He was popularised in modern times in the British TV series Robin of Sherwood: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZZz2I10me4

    That's me wrapped in my tiger blanky.

    I have no idea why my hair appears to be so dark, other than the poor lighting, because I'm a natural blonde.
    Not all in life is at it appears to be.

    Hmm, let's see! I've always been fascinated with Alice in Wonderland, and when I was a child, people commented that I looked like the Disney version of Alice (straight blonde hair, blue eyes). My latest avatar shows Alice holding her cat, Dinah.

    Alice was also my great-grandmother's name. Unfortunately, she died when my grandad was only two years old.

    Have you ever played the two computer games 'Alice' and 'Alice - Madness returns'? They're dark, weired but with great ambience!

    Ohh and my new avatar is a random drawing of Cirilla Fiona Elen Riannon. The Witcher world.

    No, I haven't! But I will check them out; thanks for the suggestion.

    I uploaded a new avatar. It's a fluffy white fox with blue eyes. I think it's beautiful. I know some people have wolves for an avatar and wolves are beautiful too but I think my personality is shyer, like a fox.

    Anyone know how to change an avatar?

    I must have forgotten because I've already done this at least once, but can no longer remember how I did it

    Not very good at the 'selfies' though and will try and get a better shot of the Brexit t-shirt sometime
