In short

  • I live in a delightful cottage without television and I try to look at life from all angles. I'm surrounded by nature and music and love to be creative.
    I'm 57 years old, I'm a wife, mother of 2 and grandmother of 5. But I'm not a typical granny as I feel young and want the most from my life.
    I ride a 600cc streetfightered motorbike.
    Teach Shotokan karate.
    Abseil down waterfalls and tall buildings for cancer research.
    Am a qualified Operating Department Practitioner.
    Combine gardening and cooking to promote health and well-being.
    Ran a biker cafe with my husband.
    Active in local politics.
    Am a member and on the board of trustees of Toc H charity.
    Work in a residential unit for people with Dementia.
    Write mostly poetry.

  • I have lived, and continue to live, life to the full but I enjoyed abseiling down a waterfall for charity; so much, in fact, that I did it again.
