Extended Profile
I am an ex Intensive Care Sister who decided to give up the rat race 15 years ago and came to Inveraray, Scotland to restore an old 1745 lairds house which we now run as a B&B. Life here with husband Garret, Toby (19), Rosie (17) and Freya (15) not to mention Holly and Nancy the border collies is great.Hobbies include running, swimming (we frighten ourselves once a year by doing a local sprint triathlon)and horse riding when child care duties and B&Bers allow.
My reading (to myself anyway,I am discounting Topsy and Tim and Thomas the Tank engine, more recently The Flower Fairies, and better yet Artemis Fowl) over the last few years has concentrated on murder mysteries (PD James/Ian Rankin),easy fiction and Fantasy novels (Terry Pratchett) although I am catching up on some more challenging stuff now thanks mainly to swindonreader. My all time favourite remains Lord of the Rings,I wish that I could read it again for the first time, and recently enjoyed seeing it through my girls' eyes and ears for their first time. I would not let them watch the films until we had finished it. Toby rather bizarrely for a boy into horror, weapons and crime (not in a literal manner but in a literary way) requested
some Dickens...may take a while to get through D. Copperfield but we are sticking with it.
