I am a cheerful retiree from teaching Biology to A level and live alone on my newish small-holding, having 3 busy sons scattered about England. With 11 sheep (6 lambs!) and a few hens, I spend some early hours looking after their needs and part of the remainder managing my Cornish apple orchard and pootling about. Sometimes, I have work-placement agricultural students here from the nearby Duchy College. I love sea swimming, sailing and good company and - only relatively lately down from London - am learning more about East Cornwall every day.
