I was born in Scotland near Paisley, Renfrewshire, educated at Barrhead High School and further educated at Stow College Glasgow.
My first employment was as a cutter in the garment trade, later with my ex-husband I managed Newsagents for 20 years. After our divorce I became a tutor plus an assessor for City and Guilds.
Now retired I enjoy dressmaking, knitting and making Jewellery. I also, at times, house and pet sit, which helps to keep me going bodily and financially. I am hoping to become a useful Lion.
