Just the facts

I am happy to be a 50 year old mother of three twenty-somethings - Melissa, Kaitlyn & Kieran
Kieran lives at home and Kaitlyn, her husband Ashley and daughter Charlie live nearby and Melissa lives close to them.

I married to an obsessive cyclist, Rod, and have been since 1983!

I am owned by a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Molly - and two cats - Frodo and Merry;

I am a passionate lactivist and breastfeeding counsellor and work as a volunteer breastfeeding counsellor with the Australian Breastfeeding Association.

I am an enthusiastic photographer and compulsive scrapbooker - have been scrapping since the late 1990s.

I am a crocheter, knitter and sewer.

I am a tea tragic and love chai lattes, but hate coffee.

I am a person with multiple sclerosis and MS peer support volunteer - symptoms first appeared in 1995 and I was diagnosed in 200o. It is mild and only gives me subtle symptoms like fatigue, sensory mishaps and a bit of balance trouble. I also suffer from fibromyalgia.

I am an avid reader and own 1000+ books, most of which I have read, plus the ever-growing Mount-To-Be-Read - at this rate I need to live another 100 years to catch up!!
