About Me


I am just a little old grey-haired lady.  No, really!  I am!   OK, so the grey hair is disguised under a mess of pinkish purplish red and I’m not (at the moment) walking with a stick, but I really am just a little old grey-haired lady underneath it all .. just not very prim & proper.

I have been married to my Other Half (usually referred to as ‘OH’ in these pages) for thirty-something years. We have two sons, Son No 1, and Son No 2.  Both have partners; in Son No 1’s case, this is the lovely T, who is a very artistic Italian lady, with beautiful black hair.  Son No 2 has the lovely B, a red-haired Irish lass of enviable calmness who loves potatoes in all their forms.  I love them both.  Son No. 2 and B have identical twin girls, S & P.  OH and I have two greyhounds: Sid, who lost a leg in his last race, and Jeff who did not.


And we all live in England, which does exist, despite anything the government might tell you.

    And how do I “follow” you so as to be sure to not miss a post?

      OH is going to put an RSS linky thing on the sidebar so you can click that. Thanks for the reminder – I’ll make sure he hasn’t forgotten.

    Hello Jay
    Do you have a follow button anywhere?

      Hi Cathy – I don’t have a ‘follow’ button, but I do have an RSS feed button! Isn’t ‘follow’ just for Blogger? You can follow me from your dashboard if you have a WordPress account, but I don’t know how to get a button actually on the blog .. sorry!

    Jay, I don’t see a contact button, so I’ll use this as a way to let you know I’ve nominated you to post Five Photos, Five Stories – the rules are to post a photo each day for five sequential days, then tell a story – fiction or non-fiction – write a poem, whatever suits you, about that photo and nominate one blogger each day to play.
    I understand this is a difficult time for you with Jeffie and life, so if you choose not to play I certainly understand.
