Retired psychiatric nurse, now artist and ESOL teacher. Non smoker, moderate drinker. For amusement I play bridge, read, am writing my autobiography and tracing my family history. I'm a folk music fan from way back and once had dinner with Paul Simon. I'm passionate about animal charities and volunteer for Cats Protection and a local cat shelter. My sense of humour is offbeat and I think Stephen Fry is a National Treasure.
