I'm English, married with children and grandchildren and have live on the South East coast of England. At the time of writing, I share my home with my husband and our two youngest daughters, along with two dogs - one of 13 years and the other just 16 weeks old - and one cat who has just presented us with twins - both girls of 5 weeks old. I have a feeling that naming them both - Belle and Eva (pronounced Eba - the Spanish way) - could prove to be a mistake and alter my claim of having one cat to be that of having three! We consider ourselves to be extremely fortunate to be able to live a stone's throw from both the countryside and the seashore. It really doesn't get much better.
In terms of interests and hobbies, whilst I used to enjoy knitting and cross stitch (early onset of arthritis makes both a little less appealing these days!) I suppose reading and music have been my first loves ever since childhood and my tastes in both are extremely varied. I can often be found listening to Alkan or Rodrigo whilst reading the works of Federico Garcia Lorca.
