Hello – I’m Alison, a very happy 50 something and I live in Yorkshire in the UK. I have 2 lovely children, Ellen who is 29 and Jacob who is 25.
Ellen did a degree in History, Heritage and Archaeology and is now working for the National Trust at Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire. Jacob finished his degree studies at Middlesborough University doing Multimedia Journalism, spent two years learning Japanese and taking a TEFL course and an MA in TESOL and is now teaching English in Japan, which is very exciting.
By day I am a University teacher working in education, a job that I really love but am also a medieval re-enactor (my pic shows me in my finery at a banquet), a passionate stitcher and enthusiastic but amateur knitter and quilter! I love camping and am happiest in a field, preferably one with a view of mountains!I have also fairly recently discovered the joys of Steampunk and WW2 re-enactment so am really enjoying putting together costumes for thoses as well.
One of my other great passions is travel, I have so many places that I want to see and that is one of the reasons why I love reading blogs as well, the little glimpses into what life is like in other parts of the world. I love to visit cities in Europe and wander round museums and churches.
You can find out more about some these things on my pages or by using the categories on my sidebar. Please leave me a comment as well so I can get to know you.
