    I work hard play hard and love my niece and nephews who I spoil very much. I work full time in a local primary school in the nursery class as a higher level teaching assistant. I also have a pet cat, Charlie who is a handful he loves to hunt and drives me potty opening doors including my kitchen, goes into the fridge and steals my food hahahahahaha clever cat, just wish he would close the doors behind him, it's freezing in the winter when he leaves the front door open after coming in. I was also a children's rep for thomson and spent many a happy seasons abroad.
    I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2011 along with an under active thyroid, high blood pressure and heart disease. I went on to develop angina and had a heart bypass in 2013.
