Biker married to a biker; bookworm and NHS staff: not much good at sleeping so I use the midnight oil to read. I'm happiest when I can take off to the countryside / seaside for a few days with a couple of boxes of wine and a couple of paperbacks. Ha, dream on girl - it doesn't happen often!!

I have recently sold my beloved 1994 Kawasaki EN 500 (also got rid of a 1974 Honda 250 Superdream and a 1976 Suzuki AP 50) . . . my new addition is a 15yr old Honda Rebel 250cc."

I lurve loud music, live music, lots of music. Born in the early 1960's my musical tastes are diverse and eclectic!

I regularly meet my referring member, Plum-crazy for our own mini meets. We swap books, have a drink and a chat, and travel around helping to stock up the Book Crossing shelves in Todmorden and Hebden Bridge railway stations, and a couple of other places besides.
I attended my first Bookcrossing Unconvention in Leeds in Sept 2013 - considering Oxford in April 2015 as I had such a good time: met lots of lovely Bookcrossers, and came home with lots of lovely books! Yummy.

I crocheted dozens and dozens of OWL KEY RINGS for the Leeds uncon: they have travelled all round the world - check them out on 741-11967076.

Hope to make something similar for Oxford." alt="BCUK Unconvention 2013, Leeds, 27th - 29th September" title="" width="300" height="100" />

Favourite places to visit - Morocco, Forest of Dean (UK), Morecambe (UK), and Goole (UK) where there is a marvellous Charity Shop selling books 5 a £1 !!

Proud member of the GREEN BOOT BRIGADE (currently just 2 BCers that I know of, Plum-crazy and me - my Green Boot didn't stand up to the trip to Oxford: took some old black ones instead - but Plum wore hers!)
Look at her profile for the colour picture - I'm not that clever!

The green boots are getting well worn - we'll be on the lookout for more boots before long!" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" codebase=",0,0,0" width="468" height="60">" />" WIDTH=468 HEIGHT=60 BORDER=0>
