Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light. (J.K Rowling)

I live in London, however was brought up in Kent. I currently own a rescue hamster, who is very anti-social at the moment. Sleeps all day in his tubes, comes out at midnight, however not a problem for me! This is however a reason not to buy hamsters for young children who will not understand and get upset

I love chocolates and biscuits, however I am also strictly gluten free as I have Coeliacs disease, so react even to items that may contain trace elements. This has however made losing weight a lot easier! I don't buy gluten free biscuits often as they are expensive and I tend to eat the whole packet, however do love the occasional gluten free custard cream. Fortunately I also enjoy cooking which means I eat better than the majority of people these days!

I also enjoy cycling, getting bargains, charity shops, travelling (well used to .... I live in hope), learning French, colouring and when I can find a restaurant that won't poison me, eating out!

I love reading a wide variety of books as you will see from my list of books read. I am trying to read the BBC top 200 books (2003) I have read over 100 of them now, however I suspect a new list will be out before I complete this list! I love the eclectic nature of the list, although I still struggle to classify "Winnie the Pooh" as a novel!

I am also enjoy independent travelling, however clearly this has been curtailed in 2020-21. I did go abroad for 4 weeks in 2019 after discovering cheap coach travel and how cheap it is to eat if you go self catering. I felt really frivolous at the time, however am so glad that I did.

I am learning French, hence you'll see a few French books in my TBR list (and a few availables)
