About meOnce upon a time, I was 'something in the City' - not much actually but having reached 62, it was time to review where and what I wanted. This is a work in progress but I will get there. Currently, a partly qualified teacher but is this what I really want?
In the end, it was not but I did qualify as an NVQ assessor and loved it because it was one-to-one teaching.

Now 74 I have left that all behind and do a tiny bit of consultancy and more volunteering.

Have I reached what I wanted - no I am still looking!!

In no particular order reading, occasional writing and gardening are the passions.

About my libraryA library that has evolved as I have got older. In my youth, it seemed to be that I would read anything that was to hand (occasionally I still do!) but now I look for books that make me think and others where the writing is pure quality. What you see is a small part of my books - I have not addressed the number of gardening books and I am very slow at adding!
I also use the public library a lot as, unlike the UK Government,I believe they are worthwhile and have thought so since childhood.
