About me

Occupation Domestic Goddess
Location A quiet village near the sea in East Anglia, United Kingdom
Introduction Growing old as in the poem 'Warning'.. slightly disgracefully and ever so ditzily. Opinionated redhead, a Northerner, funny, intelligent, I class myself as a 'country housewife' and happy to be so. I love who I am, who I am with, being me and living my life as I choose with very little, if any at all, responsibility these days. As a writer I can't help make up stories all the time, and these may appear in the form of a blog, or part of one, from time to time, interspersed with real life... but as to where the fiction ends or begins, and fact the same, that is for me to know! DISCLAIMER... Any resemblance between characters in the blog and other people with the same or similar names, is totally coincidental. Photos are not of the villages(s) in question. Names have been changed to protect the innocent!
Interests I love to read, and garden, and cook. To while away the hours, called meditation it sounds more useful! I enjoy knitting and crafting, being a country housewife and all that entails, preserving, baking, making something pretty and useful from something others might discard.
