I worked as civil servant all my life and took early 'retirement' at the end of March. Yippee! Last year moved to a lovely bungalow with a HUGE garden where live with my partner Chris. No children, cats or dogs (though Chris keeps asking if he can have a cat!). So now I've got another hobby - gardening. Don't love it as much as card making though. I am currently doing a short bead/jewellry making course which I am enjoying. I've also now started to get my craft room in some proper order and hope to be able to do a lot more and finally start getting my scrapbooking sorted! I'm in an inter-generational singing group - Vocalise - which I love. It's great fun and we have done several shows on our local theatre. Our next show is 'Swing'. My sister (Maggieme)and several friends are also into papercrafts and we love mooching round the craft fairs and shops.
