We're from Belfast, Northern Ireland though I was originally from Merseyside. I work on a helpline giving advice on employment law and my daughter, Lee, works with the Big Lottery Fund in Belfast but part of their corporate office in London. Lee also travels frequently to London, Birmingham, Newcastle and Glasgow in connection with work. We like movies, reading - I'm a sucker for crime thrillers, especially, at the minute, Donna Leon's books set in Venice. We like good food, theatre, music - our tastes vary, mine going back a bit further than Lee's! I have 2 granddaughters - Ella, Lee's daughter, who is 20 and is completely focused on acting as a career; Lana, my son Steven's daughter, who is 16 and just finishing her GCSEs. Lana will be looking for funding from a possible future employer to put her through an engineering g degree.
