About me

Occupation Retired Residential Sociial Worker.
Location Chelmsford, Essex, United Kingdom
Introduction Hi, my name is Linda and I live in Hatfield Peverel Essex with my husband Neil, two dogs, Ruben and Hetty and Florence the cat. We have lived here for 35 years and love it. We have a very large garden where i spend a lot of my time growing organic fruit and vegetables. I don,t believe in using insecticides or pesticides as i think they are harmful to the environment and also to our health. We also keep a few chickens which give us fresh eggs daily. Each one has its own personality and are a joy to have running around in the garden. I love all arts and crafts and since my retirement i have found time to enjoy painting,crochet, photography, crafting, lacemaking and patchwork. I also enjoy looking for bargains at boot sales, collecting anything interesting. I have a son Benjamin and daughter Rebecca and two lovely granddaughters Mia and Darcey and a grandson Dylan who i love very much. My favourite thing is walking in the country side and along the norfolk beaches with the dogs. When out on these walks i take lots of photos for inspiration for my artwork.
