Brian and I have been happily married for over 40 years. We have two adult children. I am a newly retired teacher and Brian is still teaching, part-time until he retires next year. We live in Bourne End , in leafy Bucks, 10 mins walk from the River Thames. We love visiting our Town Twin, Octeville-sur-mer in Normandy, France. We love Italy and have visited family in US. We enjoy Italian opera, Sci-Fi, Gilbert and Sullivan, pop/rock music (with melodies!) folk music, Classical concerts, ballet, theatre, art galleries , museums and National Trust homes and gardens. I like gardening and craft activities, supporting our local library . Brian is very busy in local community activities and one of his proudest, happiest times was being a Gamesmaker for the 2012 Olympics . In the past we have enjoyed taking part in Notting Hill Carnival! My sister and Mum run a highly successful AirBnB Guest House.
