I am married, with two boys. The eldest graduated from Uni in July 2011, with a BSc. The youngest has Autism and lives at home. We have lived in Bramham since around 1996 and absolutely love the place. We live about 2 miles from Bramham Park, home of the Bramham Horse Trials, and more recently, the Leeds Festival.

I work for Leeds City Council, in an admin support capacity, and have done for 25 years. Prior to that I was a qualified cook at the Leeds General Infirmary.

I am on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and often comment on the UK version of the Huffington Post.

This blog tends to be personal rants and raves, on whatever takes my fancy.

I am begining to express an interest in creative writing, and hope to post some work here.
