INTERESTS:

I enjoy decorating and DIY and spend a lot of time renovating our Victorian property. I also love drawing, reading, embroidery, painting, sewing, music, in fact anything creative. One of my many passions is gardening and over the last few years I have designed and established a fruit and vegetable garden of my own, created raised herb beds and a meadow. In doing this, I have learnt how to build brick walls, tile, and some basic carpentry skills.
