I'm Glenis, aka Mum and Granny, a soon-to-be-seventy retiree living in England. I've had many previous lives - some absorbing, some less so. Amongst other things, I have been the manager of a little theatre, a barmaid, and an auditor. I embarked on a University education at the age of 42 - with two young sons, a mortgage, and a hamster to support. What was I thinking!?! I guess you could say that I was not averse to risk way back when.

I emerged from later-life education clutching a Degree in Business and Finance and a Postgrad Certificate in Management Studies - and a career that I loved in economic development took off.I retired from employment at the age of 58, after a two-and-a-half year contract as the Strategic Director of an urban regeneration programme in the East Midlands region. I then had time to indulge a long -held ambition to study the Arts. In 2015, aged 67, I was awarded an Open University B.A. (Hons) in Literature.

My Interests include European travel, gardening, cinema, writing, Nordic walking, family history, books, bridge, and blogging.
