About Me

The warmest welcome to my online home!

My name is Julie aka Lovely Grey.  I live by the sea in South Devon with my partner Hot Stuff.  He’d like to think that he’s been given the name because of his chiselled good looks. Actually it’s because he’s a former heating engineer.  I love to travel in Klaus the Knaus our ageing motorhome, cook, talk about and eat food, navel gaze, create, improve myself, see the world on foot and by bike, swim in the sea, paddle in my kayak, boogie in a way that’s the female equivalent of a dad dance and share love and experiences with my family and friends. I am parent to a young adult, Louis, who has flown the nest but still needs his mum from time to time!

After over two decades of working in the NHS I decided to take a leap of faith. So I’ve  quit  my job in my fifties before normal retirement age in the hope that I can be healthier, wealthier and wiser.   Formerly I’ve had careers in taxation and occupational therapy but now it’s time  to take a new path.  How have I planned this journey and where is it going to take me?  Come along and watch me rebuild my life. It is my hope that others will find inspiration for renewal too.
