Introduction Mother of four, wife of one, caretaker of two cats, one dog, and guinea pig. My greatest desire is to have a house in the country with a sunny spot for a lovely flower and vegetable garden but plenty of shade. But I'd be even happier with a cottage in Ireland or Scotland or England - a couple of sheep and goats, some chickens and a pig. And of course lots and lots of yarn.
