About me

Industry Education
Occupation retired teacher, wife, mum and grandma
Location Hove, East Sussex, United Kingdom
Introduction Above everything else I am a very happy grandma these days! My family is the best thing I have in this world. I am also a retired teacher, now happily making the most of time to share with family and friends and my favourite hobbies including art, singing in two choirs, writing and spiritual development. My faith is important to me and I am a catholic but feel very strongly that the faiths of all peoples of the world are to be respected and treated with love. I am proud to be a positive statistic of cancer. I have had it three times now and am still here. I am not brave enough to call myself a cancer survivor but I live with it ok.....thanks to my wonderful family and friends and also, I believe, to my faith and trust and ongoing belief in survival! .
Interests my family, playing with my grandchildren, being with my close friends, art journalling, all things art, writing stories and poetry, reading, quilting, spiritual devlopment, meditation, Reiki, baking and my tiny tiny garden!

Favorite Books Historical fiction, especially The Shardlake series by CJ Sansom, On a much lighter note, I love Carole Matthews whose wonderful stories always make me smile as well as touching on some incredible simple life truths. Poetry too especially "The House of Belonging" by David Whyte.
