The warmest welcome to my online home! In real life my house, is just a stone’s throw from the sea in beautiful South Devon. I share it with my boyfriend Hot Stuff who moved in with his slippers when the 2020 lockdown started. He doesn’t look like he’s leaving anytime soon especially now he’s sold his former home in Somerset. My son, Louis, is currently hanging out in the loft. Wisely he’s taking time to decide 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 an 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 loved using writing as a medium of expression. It allows me to share the world that I’ve chanced upon but also acts as the impetus to put pen to paper. I’m exposed to trauma on a daily basis in my work life. 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 find it a place where they too can take refuge.
