I'm proud to say I am a Sign Language Interpreter! (I changed career at nearly 40, that's 4 years ago now). Living in Gouda, The Netherlands. Gouda is famous for its cheese and candles; a combination that makes you wish you had some red wine to complete the picture. Happily married.Mother of three; two boys aged 7 and 17, and a girl aged 12. I'm a 'veggie' (but I do eat fish). I know... it's a long story.
Nature, reading, writing, animals like cats, horses and the beautiful okapi (imagine licking your own ears!), natural materials like wood and cotton, the beach, collecting shells, autumn, reading, a fire place, chocolate, reading, word jokes, making people smile. Oh, and reading.
The shipping news, The golden compass, The story of Edgar Sawtelle, The time traveller's wife, The hundred secret senses and many many more - not necessarily with titles starting 'The'.
I'm the autumn type. I love warm colours like brown, dark red, orange (and purple - though that has little to do with autumn). I love the smell of fallen leaves. I love chestnuts. I love October, red wine, pumpkins, the smell of apple pie.
The Smiths, Morrissey, The Sheer, Hefner, The Housemartins, The Beautiful South, a balladeer, Belle and Sebastian
Being slightly clumsy and more than slightly impatient, I'm not very good at crafts. My products always look so different in the end than I had visualized them when I started! I do like crocheting though. And I'm confident that Swap-Bot provides a lot of inspiration to try something new and different and scary.If you're my partner: be gentle, I'm just getting started...
