British born but having lived overseas for the past 17 years, my life has seen me saying farewell to the damp grey skies of the UK for a life of nibbling warm baguettes in France and now I’m found enjoying the hot, often sticky but always colourful days of Singapore. Living the happy life with my hubby, our 2 boys, 4 guinea pigs and 2 dogs, when I'm not busy with family and pets I I do enjoy my well deserved ‘me’ time. I love to throw myself into writing and I hope everyone will find my work something of interest, inspiration or just a good read!
