Hello, I am a friendly easy-going person who loves to cook, read, garden and walk our rescue dog, Toby. My husband, Richard, loves the great outdoors and has convinced me to walk the Dales Way, the Thames Path and a number of mountains in the Lake District. I have travelled extensively, having lived in seven countries. I am always keen to meet people from different backgrounds. I work mornings in a monastery but don't let that put you off! Hope to see you soon!
