I write from time to time about my interests.

Gardening: A keen fruit and vegetable grower, I have tended an allotment for the last 11 years.

Quilting and patchwork: My interest in fabric and sewing includes patchwork; using fabrics I collect when travelling. Collecting and piecing the fabric together takes many years. I am a member of the RHS and the Wetlands & Wildfowl Trust.

Stories and story telling: My reading habits are wide and varied, particular favourites are Margaret Attwood, A S Byatt, and Jane Austen, and I enjoy detective stories, science fiction and fairy stories. I also enjoy the art and craft of story telling. I am also interested in digital photography, taking pictures of reflections and light on water, another way of telling a story.
