Warmest welcomes to my online home. In real life my house is just a stone’s throw from the sea in beautiful South Devon. My boyfriend Hot Stuff nearly lives here. We’re in the throes of selling his home in Somerset. My son, Louis, is currently hanging out in the loft while he decides what to do with his life. Hot Stuff and I love to venture further afield in Klaus the Knaus, our aged German motorhome leaving the teenager home alone. What could possibly go wrong?
I work as a occupational therapist within the justice system. However I am of an age where I’m dreaming and scheming of a very active retirement. My story will unfurl as this blog progresses. As a little taster I love to travel, cook, eat, navel gaze, create, improve myself, see the world on foot and by bike, swim in the sea, paddle in my kayak, dance in fields and share love and experiences with my family and friends.
Since I was wee, I’ve always loved using writing as a medium of expression. Not only does it allows me to share the world that I’ve chanced upon but it also acts as the impetus to seek and do stuff that I can write about. My work life is filled with heavy stuff. I’m exposed to trauma on a daily basis. So this is a place of respite, where I can reflect on what calms, uplifts, inspires and brings joy and laughter. I hope that others will find it a place where they too can take refuge.
