About me

Location Shrewsbury
Introduction Life is for living....and I've had a fantastic life with no regrets. I've done and seen so much - climbed Kilimanjaro, sailed the Atlantic, driven across Europe and Australia. Born in the Midlands we moved to Wales in 1968 and had a lovely childhood growing up in the family Country Club. I studied in London then spent 6 years living and working in Turkey. After a gap year driving across NZ and Australia we settled down in Wales and raised our 2 lads who I am really proud of. We moved to Shrewsbury and whilst Dave was self employed I did a number of roles in NHS and local govt. Taking a gap year in 2013 we bought a campervan and drove through Europe as far as Turkey - what a relaxing year that was. Back in the UK we spent a year living in London and I signed up for a course in Patisserie and Confectionery. We moved back to Shrewsbury in 2015 got new jobs and bought a house with a kitchen suitable for embarking part-time on my passion - baking. New Year, new website, new challenges....off we go again....
Favorite Books “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” - Mark Twain
