Bloggers PhotoThere isn't much to say, LOL.  
I'm 42, married and live in Plymouth, England.
I've had all sorts of jobs, from admin to boat-building to gardening, but, at the moment, I work for the local theatre - cleaning windows and sweeping up. At least the people are all nice and we get plenty of free or cheap tickets : ) 
My favourite poets are Shakespeare, Wordsworth and Robert Frost. I especially love Shakespeare's Sonnet 29.
I love writing and don't think I could live without it.

I just wanted to wish you all a wonderful and peaceful Christmas time. I've learnt a lot about poetry in my 9 months on Soup, and I'd like to thank you for your friendship, kind comments and advice. God bless you all : )
