After university I spent time teaching in Kenya with VSO. Most of my career has been in teaching in Shropshire and Warwickshire. As a Geographer I spent as much time as possible travelling in holidays. Married to Peter in 1985 and through him came to love France. Having married late in life no children but usually have a dog or two. Forced into early retirement (no regrets) we considered our future and now live in the Perigord Vert near to Nontron and Angouleme in the Charente. My French is slowly improving but fortunately Peter is fairly fluent. We visit UK to see family but can find no reason to return to live there.
