I love life , I have a great sense of humour , I am passionate about the ordinary everyday things such as growing my own vegetables , being there for my children, Ansuara yoga, walking in my bare feet, ceilidh-ing (irish, for meeting and talking with folk.) I also like being involved with my local community , am very interested in peace in Northern Ireland, women's issues. I love good food that is locally sourced cooked intuitively and enjoy a glass of wine.
