Extended Profile

I am a Higher Level Teaching Assistant working in Reception (4-5 Year olds). My favourite subject to teach is Literacy. I have started a library club at school and they have joined BC (LFLibraryClub) They love to receive books. Please pm me for the school address if interested. I wild release children's books on a Bookcrossing Tree near my school and in my village.
In my spare time I like to get involved in community projects, potter about on my allotment, knit and of course I love to read!
I shared my home with a lovely cat called Tiggy that I adopted from the RSPCA in Dec 2011 up until Dec 2017 when sadly she used up all her 9 lives and failed to cross the road safely on her way to or fro hunting mice. I have now adopted Dora (the explorer) as I was pining for a furry friend and she needed a home having been kept as a breeding animal in cramped and dirty conditions and was taken in by the RSPCA. We love each other, simple as that.
Up until Oct 2008 I was a carer for my mum. When she passed away suddenly bookcrossers worldwide were very supportive.
Shortly after this I made the decision to attend my first convention and travelled to Christchurch, New Zealand where I had the most amazing time and met some super people.
Since then I have become a convention junkie!
I have been to the annual Conventions in Christchurch, New Zealand, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Washington, USA, Gothenburg, Sweden, Dublin, Ireland, Oxford UK (I helped to organise that one), Melbourne, Australia ,Athens, Greece , Oslo, Norway and Bordeaux, France.
I plan to go to Mainz, Germany in 2019 and The Gold Coast, Australia in 2020 where the Convention will include lots of reading on the beach and that suits me down to the grains of sand on that beach.
I have been to Uncons in Edinburgh, Swindon, Colchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Loughborough, Boston, USA and Bordeaux, France. My next Uncon will be in Ipswich, UK.

Bookcrossing has changed my life!

Info for the Birthday RABCK. - My chocolate passion is Lindor. Other lovely items would be wool for real knitting and for yarnbombing, notebooks, BC Labels or seeds of any kind. Thank you :)
