Lover of words, of hand-made stuff, and reading, though I don’t have a lot of time these days. I have a photography and written word blog at http://www.blipfoto.com/woodpeckers
Working part time with children with complex health needs and severe learning difficulties. Work at a Catholic school but not a practising Catholic. Interested in autism and Asperger’s syndrome. Also working with recovering addicts and alcoholics. Trying to get out more after a dreadfully long winter spent in front of the fire. (Undiagnosed) dyspraxia means that I can’t drive a car, despite having spent thousands on lessons. Not being able to drive in a rural area has been a hindrance to getting all kind of jobs, but there aren’t many now…
I am older than you and have lived in Ireland, Scotland and now England. Parents brought up in India. Love to write, when it is flowing, and am trying to get back into being a poet. Daily practice helps, even if some of it is drivel!
The first band I ever saw live was Stiff Little Fingers at the Glasgow Apollo.
Thank you for reading this far.
