After many years as a Secondary School Art teacher, I have recently said goodbye to full-time work and am exploring new horizons as a freelance writer.

By nature, I am a timid person but somehow my sense of adventure tends to get the better of me. In this, I am encouraged by my partner who is always planning the next journey.

Mindful of the fact that we need to take care of this world and make it a better place for our kids and grandkids I’d like to live a more sustainable lifestyle and discover what this involves. For someone who loves the good things in life, I suspect that adopting a more environmentally friendly lifestyle will prove a bit of a challenge. However, I have made a start by buying a bicycle, catching the occasional bus and am now on the lookout for a good pair of walking shoes.

At present, our house is home to an extended family of two grandparents, one daughter and 3 granddaughters and a cat. This intergenerational living arrangement is proving to be fun and sometimes challenging.
