As a person

I live in the Ribble Valley with its beautiful countryside and rivers.  I’m one of those river swimmers you hear about – come freezing cold or just cold water, I’m in with my woolly hat on! I’m a single parent with 2 wonderful children, Ronnie and Mary. Thankfully they love open water swimming too (with our dog Olive looking after the flasks of tea at the riverbank, so we often get out at the weekends together.  Ronnie is in the RAF cadets and I’m a civil volunteer for the RAF squadron. He also loves his cricket so that also keeps me busy, along with Mary and her school and town hockey fixtures.

My peaceful time comes in my garden; I love to garden, plant, prune and I even love weeding. Oh, and I follow St. Helens Rugby League FC and Everton Football Club (which is never stress free!).

I’ve lived in several countries in Europe and Asia and have loved experiencing other cultures since I was a teenager, but I’m now really happy living in my old farmhouse with my children and animals and enjoying the inspiring countryside of Lancashire these days.
