Hi, I was born in
Chippenham many moons ago and have managed to stumble my way through the
various modes of the education system.
My father was a gardener from whom I learned my love of gardening and my
mother was a seamstress, who taught me all she could of her profession. I
married when I was 20, my 1st son Micheal was born in may, 6 weeks before
my 21st. At christmas time I found I was expecting again, when I was 3
months pregnant my husband decided that marriage was too restricting and
upped and left.
I had my second
son, Peter, in september and divorced my husband 3 years later On easter
monday - 28th march 1978 - I came to what was to be a big turning point in
my life ................... I met Keith..............I told him straight
-"I'm not looking for anything permanent in a
relationship"............HA!!!!!....I married him on 7th october the
same year. (I still feel that it's the best move I've ever made and we
have been married 26 years this october (2004).
I've had numerous jobs over the years, but for the past 13 I have been a
carer, the last 3 1/2 of these I've also been a warden for sheltered
accommodation looking after 31+ residents.
I enjoy painting, fishing, gardening, reading, France and working on
Basset (our T25) I love dragons (hence the name) and my favourite writer
is Anne McCaffrey, whose series of books on the Dragons of Pern have kept
me avidly reading - and rereading- since they 1st found there way into the
bookstores in the late '60s.
Pet hates....................housework!!!....... I would rather help Keith
stripping engines down than do housework, as Keith will testify.
That's all folks.
