I was born in a tiny village called Shotley, near Ipswich on the east coast of Suffolk, England. I have many happy memories of that time, but due to my father's job, we moved to Kent. Again, after a few years we moved to the south of England, Southampton. My family is still living there now. I was married to the father of my two sons, until his death at an early age of 46. That was a dreadful time in my life, but my sons were amazing, although only 12 and 15, they were my strength and my sanity. We managed fine, I went back to college after finding out office work had changed somewhat, and took a Btec course in computing. I passed the exams and applied for a job. This is the where Hedgerow Capers began. I enjoyed my job as secretary to the company directors of a soft drinks firm, they were kind to me and became close friends. Life continued, my sons grew up into wonderful men, who now have lovey families of their own.
After a few years I married my present husband, (Also my last one!) One day my father told us about a programme on the television called, A Pace in the Sun, and said we should watch it. We did, and within a year we had moved to Spain. Everyone came for holidays each year, and then after eight years my father died, and my mother's health deteriorated. Now we have been trying to sell up and go home. Not only to be close to my mother, but to have more time with our grandchildren.
I continued to write here, and as our new friends discovered I wrote poety, they began asking to to write special ones for them, which I do. It has been such a fun occupation, taking me into my own little world. This is the world I love to disappear into and I do every day.
