I was born in Bristol, England and emigrated with my husband to Vancouver in the early 1970s. I was a stay-at-home mum until my children were in school, when I returned to work and had an interesting and fulfilling career in the Vice President Academic’s Office at the University of British Columbia. I retired a few year’s ago and, since then, my grandchildren keep me ‘young’!!!
I enjoy reading, listening to music, knitting and crocheting - my recent crochet projects include several CALs (Crochet A-Longs) by Janie Crowe, and last winter I knitted a Cowichan Indian sweater for my daughter, which she loves! I’m an avid sports fan and for several years we have had season’s tickets to our soccer team, the Vancouver Whitecaps.
I have just finished reading The Betrayers by David Bezmozgis. Other recent books include Eating Dirt by Charlotte Gill, Half-Blood Blues by Esi Edugyan, and one book that I truly enjoyed reading, an ‘old’ and rather obscure book titled My Antonia by Willa Sibert Cather. Currently I am reading When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi; it has a beautifully written forward by Abraham Verghese.
On a desert island I would have to have music by Mozart, the Bach Cello Suites, Bob Dylan, Emmy Lou Harris, Willie Nelson, Neil Young, and Gord Downey and the Tragically Hip. I absolutely could not do without CBC and BBC radio programming! And I would need a supply of big, juicy red wine - think Australian Shiraz - and Prosecco if it were a really hot desert island; food with an Indian influence would be welcome, too. Of course, I would need the ability to spirit myself back to Vancouver to be with family!!!
I support the local and sustainable food movement, buying seafood from Skipper Otto and meat from Whispering Winds Ranch in the interior of BC. Fruits and veggies are from local Farmer’s Markets or my local organic supermarkets - Choices and Whole Foods.
I often travel back to England and France to visit family.
