Hello everyone. I'm a 50 year old young lady from Bristol. I love my family , gardening and genealogy.  My music taste is loud and my clothes are louder. I work as a teaching assistant at a primary school, so bad language doesn't bother me: as I'm told where to go and what to do when I get there on a daily basis. Love hub pages as I love to write.
