About me

Gender Female
Location London, United Kingdom
Introduction London housewife, mother of a 32-year-old daughter (Kay), chauffeur, cleaner, cook, nurse, paperwork manager, interior decorator, gardener, former carer (for elderly mum) and part-time individual (well, that's how I feel after I've done all the above!) Trying to cope with the stresses and strains of watching my alcoholic husband (Greg) sink slowly from my grasp - he died in March 2010. To read about living with an alcoholic, look up the archive between May 2008 and March 2010. My story is true. Only our names have been changed to maintain our anonymity.
Interests gardening, cooking, dressmaking, (they help me to relax and wind-down mentally), dog-walking, (the nearest I get to a work-out), anything to do with chocolate, collecting owls, alcoholism/alcoholic.
Favorite Movies Far from the Madding Crowd, Dr Zhivago, Sophie's Choice, Ladies in Lavender, Cabaret, When Harry Met Sally, and far too many to mention
Favorite Music Most kinds, Classical, Rock, Sixties
