I have lived most of my life in my birth city of Bradford, West Yorkshire, though I would much prefer to start a whole new life in the Yorkshire Dales, keeping a small-holding and living a more connected and quiet life. Maybe then I could spend proper time with my two rescue cats, named after characters from books by my favourite author, Terry Pratchett.
I currently work for the NHS as a medical devices technician, repairing, calibrating, safety testing and servicing all manner of medical equipment. Anything from a diathermy to a syringe driver could be on my bench at any one time. I enjoy doing something that directly helps to care for patients and keeps them safe, and I like to do things that save the hospital money. In the current climate, this is essential!
Outside work I do all sorts of things – mostly allotment gardening, Pilates, reading, country walking, being a triathlon widow/supporter, knitting, and Argentine tango. You will probably find out as my blog grows that there are loads of other things too.
