This is all totally new to me, but being a bit of a windbag in the letter writing department (my record stands at 67 sides in 1972 to a young soldier who’s probably still trying to read it) my husband suggested I might enjoy doing this. Letter writing is of course a thing of the past as we all seem to rely on email or text messages. The only mail to hit our mat these days is the bank statement, bills and junk mail flyers for things we neither have, want or need.
Interests are varied and include cooking (some of my best dishes have arisen by accident, so more on that at a later date), music (play piano but can’t read a note), reading (Reacher is HOT) and the dog, which in turn leads to long walks in the woods and enjoying the sights and sounds of nature at its most unspoiled. I have also penned the odd short story, several based on our collection of teddy bears.
We have lived in a semi rural environment for the past six years and have come to enjoy the benefits of growing our own veg, keeping chickens for a while (another story) and taking great pleasure watching the birds coming into the garden and rearing their young.
