I’m Irish, living in Australia. I spent ten years in France with my husband while he worked on the reservations system, for the TGV and Eurostar fast trains. His contract was to be a two year one, but luckily for us it lasted for ten. We made many friends from different parts of the world, travelled throughout Europe visiting many beautiful places, savoured the famous French Cuisine and wines, often enjoying it all with visits from family and friends from Ireland, the UK and Australia.
It was an exciting ten years, and our homecoming was all the sweeter with the arrival of our first grandchild.
We have three lovely daughters and four delightful grandchildren, not forgetting our three great sons-in-law.
My wish is to contribute to making our world a safer, happier, less stressful world for our children and grandchildren.
I love playing piano, often with my granddaughter, painting and gardening. I also love cooking, photography, and being in the company of friends, family, and especially my grandchildren.
I have just started learning to play Mah Jong with a lovely group of ladies, and enjoying it immensely…and now also learning all about the internet world…
my ultimate goal being that I can show my girls how they may work from home, smell the roses and have the freedom to do and go where they like, when they like, and get to spend more time with their families.
That’s my absolute wish for 2017.
