A not conventional student of a certain age doing my dream course reading a BA in Architectural glass at Swansea Metropolitan University.
I am blessed by Sophie Megan Davies my AMAZING daughter…..who has recently gradiated from UWIC with a BA in Fine Art Sculptre.She is my blessing & as well as working at Briony Theatrical Supplies, she runs an Etsy shop called Limefeltheart. She is currently my housemate as she has returned home to live me in our tiny home. We share our hearts and sofa with Darcy Bear our amazing dog!!
I spent 17 years living in Reading Bekshire having a challenging, frustrating/rewarding albeit sucsessfull career doing a series of grown up Corporate jobs in IT companies like HP & Dell in the South East of England.
I returned to Wales after a 17 year absence making my heart grow fonder for Wales.
