I have been married for 35 years which has been lovely. I have two sons, Sam is 27 an ex plumber and now a Graphic Designer, Tom is 25 and a young entrepreneur, check out www.londonvideoreviews.co.uk, I am very proud of both of them. We have a cat called Treacle, who has a very odd personality to say the least! My passions are, anything artistic, especially sculptures, photography, gardening, interiors and quilt making. I love good food, and people who are passionate about what they do, excellent service, and seasons, especially snow. I’m a big fan of anything unusual and quirkily different as long as it is tasteful. New England is a big favourite as is the New England interior style from Log cabin to Cape Cod Ocean home. Books of all kinds fill my home including children’s, the latter can be hugely amusing. My few pet hates are poor service, laziness, large boats and cheese, I’ve tried to like the last one but so far have failed miserably, it’s very annoying! I love sharing good quality ideas and interests and places to visit, hence the blog, it gets everything I love in one place to let everyone enjoy, which I hope you do. Did I mention I like Brandy, and large blowsy roses that look like cabbages, well made dark brown leather items (love the smell), and most things on the Lyla and Blu web site.
