My fondest memories are my friends, midnight binges, Jaw with John Cleese, the apple orchard, the library, picking blackberries and making blackberry jam, the first snow, coming back to school and seeing the daffodils, outdoor work, weaving on the looms. meeting seven refugee boat children from Vietnam that we looked after...how privileged was I?!

Walking on the beach, reading a good book (looking forward to readingSuspicions of Mr Whicher by Kate Summerscale), learning about universal conscious energy.
