About me

Occupation Retired
Location English Lake District, United Kingdom
Introduction I am a 'Wee Scottish Beastie' living in the English Lakes. I've been married to Bryan for forty seven years and have a son and daughter who have delighted us by giving us five grandchildren..three boys and two girls. I enjoy reading, writing and keeping my journal. It has brought me much pleasure in getting to know so many likeminded friends and the chance to learn about their lives too. My favourite book is The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying by Sogyal Rinpoche. I read it like the bible. I dabble at art, poetry too, when the muse strikes. I also love to read poetry. William Wordsworth is one of my favourites, he once lived in Grasmere which is not far from me. Ted Hughes is another favourite poet along with Emily Dickinson. Last but not least.. I am a breast cancer survivor. Thank you God.
Interests Reading, writing stories and poetry, gardening, silversurfing, theatre, walking, calligraphy and dabbling at watercolouring or mixed media (!).

You've written a hit musical! How will you avoid having fame go to your head?

By being myself. Grounded.
