Welcome to my blog. I am a 'sixty something' year old mother of three and grandmother of five. Having worked for many years in HR, Training and Health & Safety for an international energy company, I took voluntary redundancy in 2011. After a couple of years of short term interim jobs I decided to become a mature student, graduating in 2016 with a First class joint honours in English Language (mainly sociolinguistics) with Creative & Professional Writing. I am currently working part time as a HR Advisor in the transport & logistics sector, and planning to retire at the end of 2021. Currently writing my second book whilst seeking representation for the first.
