Welcome! Thank you for visiting.

Here's a brief biography: I’m English by birth and England is where I live. I’m a grandmother but strenuously resisting sliding into old age despite recently joining the seventy-something club.

An enthusiastic Lifetime Learner, at the age of 42 I gave up a job that was leading nowhere to embark on a University education. With two young children and a hamster to support., what must I have been thinking! I eventually emerged clutching a Postgrad Certificate in Management Studies from the University of Nottingham. I then 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 Development 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.

I write on a variety of subjects but am particularly interested in history, biography, literature, cookery and in sharing my travel experiences with an audience. I hope you find something that interests you amongst my articles
