Introduction ...Welcome to CHRYSALISM. A sort of follow up to the very successful BEAUTY HUNTER blog which was sadly deleted by google after 7 years .Also now celebrating 10 years blogging. But now living with some restrictions after my Bowel Cancer surgery. It also restricts me to only working a few hours a week, although I hope to increase my hours with better health.
Interests Home building projects. I enjoy Photography, Sports... Tennis, Football... supported Man Utd since I was little, Blogging and creating art and text for the blog, Love gardening, Love to visit London Festivals and some of the popular Market places, Love Camden Market and Portobello Road Market. Enjoy practicing on my electric guitar. Like to keep up with the news and all the madness going on around the world while looking forward to seeing Britain finally break away from the E.U. and retain our Sovereignty and political power from the corrupt unelected ragbag of nobodies in Brussels.We can well do without being in the E.U. Just ask our Cornish Fishermen as well as our Farmers.
