I am passionate about ancient buildings and the need to preserve our heritage. It was during the very hands-on two year renovation of Bronte School House (a grade II listed building) that I became quite obsessed with learning about and utilising the materials that were originally used to build properties of this era and with finding out about the history of the building. The link to the Brontes ignited an interest in their literature and I have spent many hours browsing second-hand bookshops seeking out old hard-back copies of their novels to read. The language they use is just so beautiful, it's a shame that much of their vocabulary has now sadly dropped from common parlance. I love nothing more than finding a receptive audience to whom I can read aloud passages from the Brontes! Their novels deserve to be read aloud.

I guess my other main interest is travelling: to experience different cultures, different ways of living, different outlooks on life, different ways of being. I am fortunate to have found a great travelling companion in my husband Malik. We both have a particular soft spot for India and have spent a great deal of time travelling, primarily by train, throughout that fascinating nation. This year though we are heading in the opposite direction: to Argentina and Chile - can't wait!
