My family and I have travelled, we spent time in the Isle of Man, and then emigrated to NZ where we spent 11 years living in Whangarei, we have learned much about others through this journey and it has enriched our lives. We returned to Lancashire in 2017. Well- three of us returned, Ellen stayed in Whangarei, and that has been one of the hardest things I have had to come to terms with.
My family consists of my husband Dave, my twin daughters Ellen and Emily and a cat called Mischief. We came back to the UK to spend time with our wider families, my sister Tracey and her family, Dad and Dave’s parents.
I am probably a little bit of an eccentric. I get a great deal of energy from the landscape and the world around me, and I like to be busy doing and making things.
I knit, crochet, sew, make candles, play a trombone (in a swing band), run, walk and also write.
I am not especially skilled at any of the above, I am very imperfect. I value imperfection.
I value kindness and integrity and compassion. For one who has stumbled often I know the real worth of these qualities.
