About meI have been away from LibraryThing for a while now.
My husband passed away in October 2013 so I have had some major changes in my life.
I have 3 children (26,24 & 16), and 4 grandchildren. With just my 16 year old son at home now life is very different, but I am enjoying the time I have with him before he heads off into the big wide world. He is a serious guitarist, who thankfully enjoys a wide variety of good music from early blues to 80s rock (and nothing much after the 80s).
I have left all my little jobs and found full time work (admin at the High School my girls attended) and I have sold our home on a 1/4 acre section and bought a smaller, warmer and newer home with no garden, just pots!
Life is settling down and I am back to reading, and craft. My kids are amazing, and I find so much support in them and the grandchildren. I love to read, sew, quilt, scrapbook and knit.

About my libraryI like to read a variety of books, about the only thing I don't read is fantasy and science fiction. I am not a particularly fast reader, and don't have a lot of spare time to read but I just love discussing what I am reading, or have read :o)

My TBR is a list (several pages long) rather than BOMBS waiting to be read. As finances don't allow the purchase of many books I am an avid member of the Library, one day I may get around to putting all the TBRs on my wish list as a way of keeping track - rather than the sheets of A4 I currently keep adding to!
