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 Bridge 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 share my home with a lovely cat called Jackson whom I adopted from Cat's Protection. He had been a stray in a nearby village and was taken to the vets with an abcess on his paw. They named him Michael Jackson. That was a bit too weird for me but I felt that I could live with the name Jackson so now this white with black spots tom cat belongs to me and strays no more. I have made my bed and he lies in it!
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, Amsterdam, Washington DC, Gothenburg, Dublin, Oxford UK (I helped to organise that one), Melbourne, Athens , Oslo, and Bordeaux.
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, Ipswich, Boston, USA and Bordeaux, France. I will be helping to organise the 2019 UK Uncon in Northampton.

Bookcrossing has changed my life!
