I love crafting, cardmaking, scrapbooking, making things from felt and embroidery. As I had to take early retirement at the end of 2010 because of chronic medical condition I have had more time to do these things. Painting, drawing, calligraphy, poetry, gardening and walking are also things I enjoy although all depend on my health behaving itself. My husband retired at the end of last year and it's great having him here with me. We also had our first grandchild a few weeks ago, a boy, so lots of things to occupy me.
