My family, especially my daughters Libby and Mandy
My job
being by the sea
walking in the country
dancing in the rain
music
reading
writing (wouldn't be here if I didn't)
being with friends
dark nights by the fire with a good book and wine
long soaks in the bath
the wind through a windchime
the sun on my face
all wildlife

Hates
nothing but a few things irritate not worth mentioning


Has had to re-invent myself following the death of my husband 2 years ago and I've learned that I am a stronger person than I thought and that true friends stand by you when others walk away.

I have had to learn to do things by myself and I've made solo journeys, surprised how happy and content I can be with my own company.

My philosophy - CARPA DEUM (seize the day) - for there may never be a tomorrow

Small glimmer of light

I would just like to say a big thank you to John Freeman for placing my poem 'The Gift' equal first in his competition, I am humbled and to be in such esteemed company as Deborah Guzzi who I think is an outstanding poetess is an extreme honour and has brought a small glimmer of light to my world which is much darker since the passing of my beloved Billy last week. He would have been so proud, as he was a big supporter of my work as a writer. I would also like to thank everyone so much for their kind wishes and messages of condolence, they were very much appreciated both by myself and my daughters Libby and Mandy. Congratulations to all the winners of recent contests both by members and the Soup - I'm sorry that at present I am not able to comment to each of you personally and wish you all well in your writing endeavors. Much love Janette
