About Me
I live in Surrey with my daughter, a black cat called Friday and two Bassett Hounds called Alice and Percy. I work as an End of Life Carer and in my spare time (when not reading) I love long walks in the countryside with my dogs. The picture is of my old boy Billy who crossed the rainbow bridge on 21st December 2018, 2 months short of his 19th birthday and i still miss him very very much.
