The one thing I am passionate about...
I have my 3 grwon-up children living in Brooklyn and often see them & my new grand-daughter. They do not see their father very often as he now lives in Thailand.I love to travel & do so whenever I can. Unfortunately, in the last few years I have had to travel to England only to look after my very elderly father (93). I have lived in England, France, Belguim & Spain (20 years) and have traveled to Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Israel, Lebanon, Bahrain, Thailand, Syngapore, Hong Kong, Australia, Kenya & South Africa.I love my home,my 2 little beagle rescue dogs & am addicted to scrabble!!
I typically spend my leisure time
I spend a lot of time with my 2 beagle rescue dogs. They're such fun & make me very happy.I love to cook, read, listen to music, knit, sew, garden, board games, especially scrabble, watch TV & films, especially foreign. I just love to cook & bake for myself & my family, in the summer outside. In the winter I enjoy watching a decent film on the TV and knitting for my grand-daughter, after a good home-cooked meal!In the summertime, I have a lot of work to do in the garden, but it's sometimes too very hot and this summer, so very muddy!!I also e-mail frinds & do play computer games, but that's just a time-filler!!
