I've loved doing B&B since 2002 it's a dream job for me as I love cooking, cleaning & most of all meeting new people in our home.
I love cooking especially making cakes as I used to be a confectioner for many years.
My hobbies have been watching my boys playing Rugby all over the country when possible & helping out with transport for others.
My husband & I joined a Archery club about 8 years ago which we love.
I've just joined a rowing club after having lessons decided to carry it on.
I used to silk paint scarves for friends & family also make pictures using silk & frame them but unfortunately I don't have the time now.
I love to go line dancing once a week if possible & we sometimes meet up for a glass of wine or two later.
We don't get much time to travel but we do love going to see musicals & visiting museums when we visit our friend in London.
The best thing that's happened in my life is meeting my husband & having my beautiful boys, who could ask for more, not forgetting my many friends.
