Contrary to the photgraph which merely suggests I'm a boozy old bird; I am a linguist, traveller and wannabe writer. I have recently discovered that life begins after the children have left the nest. They may have taken their belongings and mess. But they have left me with my grumpy retired husband who is also struggling with getting older. I invite you to enjoy a walk on the lighter side of fifty with me. Champagne is optional but recommended.

Rather than bore you all to tears here there is so much more about me at my other blog 'Facing 50 with humour' which can be reached by clicking on the title or the button in the sidebar.
