Introduction I have lived in the self-proclaimed capital of the West Country for more than twenty years apart from two brief spells spent firstly in Brisbane, Australia, and then in Exeter, Devon. I am fortunate to have two beautiful daughters, an exceptionally clever husband, two gorgeous dogs called Rosie and Archie and an equally gorgeous cat called Casper. I love to laugh and cry and am one of the most vocal people I know! I hope you enjoy reading about my world. Sue x
