I was born, just before WW2, in Nottingham. When I left school I went to train as a General Nurse at the Queen Elizabeth School of Nursing in Birmingham and then as a Midwife in South London and District Midwife in North London. Since then I have lived and worked in various parts of the UK and Norway.

I have been married for 41 years, am a wife, mother, mother-in-law and grandmother.

25 years ago we moved from Kent to West Wales and lived in a large bungalow in a garden of over an acre.7 years ago we moved to the outskirts of Cardiff, to a small modern house with a small modern garden, so it has been quite life changing.

My husband and daughter are both keen “Bloggers” so I thought I might as well join in the hobby too.
