About me

Occupation Occupational Therapist
Location Brixham, Devon, United Kingdom
Introduction My name is Julie aka Lovelygrey, a name that expresses pride in my silvery mop top that will not succumb to hair dye! I live right by the sea in the fishing port of Brixham, Devon. My much loved motorhome was my home for nine months but Klaus the Knaus is now just kept for holiday adventures. I try to live a life characterised by joy, gratitude and compassion and set an example to my 14 year old son, Louis so that he does the same. I make people laugh, with me but mostly at me!

Oh, and there's Beegu, a wonderful kid's books that I have fond memories of from Louis' childhood.
