I am a writer who writes articles mainly about subjects that are of interest to people with disabilities as I am disabled myself. I have written and had published some articles about cross stitch, letters to magazines and papers. I am a retired Civil Servant, have worked with people with disabilities and those with mental health problems. I have done a lot of work for various charity organisations such as the elderly, and animal welfare.
I have my own website where my articles are published.

Interesting Past Experiences
I have done a few very short stop motion videos which I have uploaded to YouTube. I have just purchased a stop motion package and will be making some videos in the future.
I some how have the ability to pick up accents . For example I spent two years in Nottingham and when I came home to Kent people thought I was from the north because they could detect a northern accent, even though I couldn't. I can do a general Scottish accent, Not sure how convincing but I can do Welsh. I sound to some people like a Londoner, even though I am not from London.
I really enjoy putting on accents and regional dialects and I love to make people laugh, something I have been told I am good at.
I was a member of an Ecumenical Choir many years ago, only leaving because I moved away from the area. I have also been a member of my local Rock Choir. No longer running due to the Covid 19. I am taking online singing lessons.
I have written articles on various subjects which have been published on my website. In my teens I wrote poetry and have been a member of two different choirs.
I was a member of a local drama group. During my membership I played Gretel in Hansel and Gretel, a nurse in a production of Hamlet, and a maid in Twelfth Night. The group did a lot of improvisation which I enjoyed doing. More recently I joined another drama group and have done two monologues. One of which was a poem by Pam Aires. Both of these were put on Youtube. I have also completed a month of live streaming for a social media app where I talked about loom knitting .
