Hampshire
I'm married, work full time and live in a cottage in Hampshire with my husband, dog and three cats.
Interests: Ooooh so many. I like to run, out in the woods with the dog. I also like to make stuff. Sadly my imagination is more creative than my abilities but hey ho.

Well that was a much longer break than intended. I may have mentioned this before but time just seems to get GOBBLED UP and the older I get, the quicker the pesky stuff goes. Anyhoo, in very dull news I've had to restore my phone from a backup but that... Continue reading
