Hello and welcome. My articles cover various topics that interest me - including British customs and traditions, English history, travel, poetry, and a few favourite recipes.I hope that you find something amongst them that interests and entertains you.
I am an English woman who lives in the part of Nottinghamshire that is known as Robin Hood country. I am now retired and the past is another country. An enthusiastic Lifetime Learner, in 2015, aged 67, I was awarded an Open University B.A. Hons. in Literature. But my first Degree was in Business and Finance and I have a Post -Grad Certificate in Management Studies. My work history includes accountancy, management of a little theatre, the strategic development of urban regeneration public/private sector partnership programmes.
Late to the party, I produced my two sons at a time when I was described as "an elderly prima gravida", and now have three very young grandchildren. Their future on our rapidly changing planet concerns me and so I keep up to date with current affairs and British politics, occasionally commenting on Twitter and enthusiastically signing petitions if I see issues that I feel need to be addressed. There is a link to my Twitter account on the right side of this page.
