About me

I'm married to an English man, and have two lovely grown-up daughters. I came to live here in Warwickshire in 1980, and still have my Dutch passport. Our youngest has recently married, I'm semi-retired, so I could spend more time on hobbies and garden. My husband introduced me to Morris dancing, which we have enjoyed for 25 years. Knees are now a bit knackered, so had to give up, but I still miss it. I also play the English Concertina in a Folk Orchestra, sing with a friend in the Folk Club, and talk Dutch to my cats.
