I was born in Nottingham England in 1958. Firstly, I am a wife and mother. I am blessed to have an amazing husband and two beautiful children. We came to France, Brittany, in 2000 and moved south to Toulouse ten years later. It was while living in Brittany that I began writing my weekly column in the Bella magazine UK. I have a few hobbies including vegetable gardening, cooking, painting plant pots and drinking the odd cocktail.
