20 facts about myself. (Seems I’m off to a late start so will post days 2&3 today – been sneaking a look at fellow challengers!)
I learnt to read almost 1,000 characters in Chinese (very interesting!)
I make my own natural skin creams – they’re so much better and cheaper too.
I love water of all kinds, rivers, lakes, sea, streams, the sound, look and smell.
I hate wearing shoes and as a child drove my mom crazy always taking them off.
I have an hons. degree in sculpture but worked most of my life as an English teacher.
I like to eat healthy but my weakness is chocolate (my secret addiction).
I love Italy and speak passable Italian due to an early romance with an incredible Italian boy.
I’ve always loved to make things, anything from clothes to furniture.
I don’t like cooking and managed to avoid it for a long time (my 2
nd husband was an ex cook.) I must be half man as I really don’t like shopping either.
Altogether I have 7 grown up children (from two different marriages) who I love to pieces and am incredibly proud of.
I’m a quarter gypsy, quarter landed gentry, and half teachers and shop keepers by blood.
I’ve witnessed many unexplainable miracles.
Another unusual dislike, TV! (Haven’t really watched it for around 50 years – living is much more fun!)
All the cells I’ve lost with age tend to be in the memory department (now what was I saying?).
I enjoy a good laugh at myself (which is just as well lol!)
I love space and light, can’t handle dark, small spaces.
I hate lying or deceit in any form (this includes advertising, politics, and hypocrites).
I’m a bookworm but one with “special needs”, classics, historical fiction, and non-fiction only please.
I’m a lucid dreamer and get a lot of stories that way.

I’m going to try my first blog challenge (fingers crossed!)
Day 1 is a recent photo and intro. this is about the nearest I can get as unlike most ladies I have an aversion to cameras. This one is about a year old.
Very brief intro. (I’m keeping things in reserve against the 20 things about you day lol!) I’m 63 years old, retired and live near London in a beautiful old English town. I love to write, paint, and learn new things (like blogging!)
