I like to live a quiet life with my family and small circle of friends. I love music, reading, art, knitting, embroidery, growing things, visiting old churches and walking along the seashore. I'm vegetarian, love cats, go the ballet as often as I can and my favourite food is homemade cake. I love maths and science but also believe that "there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in those philosophies".
