My family is grown up and in recent years I took the plunge and became self employed. I have an office in my home and on normal days I can be found behind my desk.

Since I swapped the stresses of being an employee for the stresses of being self employed I have come to appreciate Abbeyleix as a town to live in and my house has felt more like home - I no longer feel like a lodger in my own home.

I love .....
meeting friends for coffee and a chat
eating out, cinema, theatre
being spontaneous - just getting in my car and driving to the beach on my days off
having coffee outside my back door in the early hours of the morning
travelling - I dont do enough of it - something i intend to rectify

It may sound boring but my motto is live and let live.
