It's official, Boris has accepted the Olympic flag and now we have four years to get London 2012 off the ground. After the razzmatazz of the Beijing opening, the arrival of a London bus (on time for once) didn't quite have the impact I would have liked. If the aging Jimmy Page and recent rising star Leona Lewis are supposed to represent the best of Britain then I am a little disappointed. Biggest cheer of course to David Beckham and rightly so - at least our youngsters can relate to him. Things can only get better as Tony Blair once said, and look where that got us!
I'm married, one son, two stepsons, a grandson, one crazy German Pointer and two cats (all male). I love making jewellery, especially knitted and crocheted wire necklaces and bracelets.Before having my son I ran my own publishers' representative service, selling English books into Europe. It was really hard work but great fun and I got to see a lot of Europe and North America. These days I am happiest when I am close to home.
