Thanks for visiting. Here’s a little about me: I’m English by birth and England is where I live. I’m a grandmother but strenuously resisting being labelled elderly. I’ve worn many different hats In my llife. Amongst other things, I have been the manager of a little theatre, a barmaid, and an auditor. I gave up my job to embark on a University education at the age of 42 and eventually emerged clutching a Postgrad Certificate in Management Studies from the University of Nottingham. I slipped into a public sector career in economic regeneration and 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.
