A little about me.
I love learning. I love books and art and people. I love crisp, clear winter mornings when the air is fresh and cold and the sun is shining. I love wildlife in woodlands and cityscapes at night in the rain (particularly the way lights reflect and blur on wet pavements). I love music and dancing; swimming outdoors when the summer allows and drinking hot chocolate and Amaretto, topped with squirty cream, whilst sitting by a camp fire and laughing with friends. I hate shopping. But I love charity shops, flea markets and car boot sales.
A little about what I do
I am a tutor with the Workers’ Educational Association (WEA) currently teaching courses in Creative Writing, Basic Computing and Dyslexia Awareness. I also work as a support tutor on a variety of different courses.
I also write (with varying success) and offer editing services and web design, as well as providing administration, bookkeeping and support to individuals and small businesses.
