What makes me, me, is the culmination of my past, present, and future experiences (everything from the food I ate (body) to the people I met and interacted with (family, friends, boyfriends, authors, mentors, and countries) to the meditation and careful curation of what I keep and what I leave behind.

All my life I have volunteered to help people. I’m a curious person and like to find out how and why things work. I’m the late 1980’s I became a mature student  and took city and guilds embroidery followed by quilt making. I got involve with India while studying embroidery and produced a book. I now work as an artist using mainly pen and ink and am a member of Harborough Artist Cluster.    The only association that I volunteer at is the  Parkinson’s. 
Does this make me/me. I have no idea.

I am not sure. As I become more experienced, I become more aware and accepting of how little I know. My work and pastimes can be fun but are never done. My motivation is family. My titillation is stuff and adventure. I am working incrementally towards Fudoshin.

I ran away from home when 11 years old.
Police put me into children’s refuge.
Went to London to the night shelters when about 16/17.
Then became pregnant with first daughter at 18.
Daughter passed away aged 11.
Came to Northamptonshire and lived with someone but was subjected to domestic violence and put into women’s refuge.
Then became homeless again and started drinking.
Rehoused into a flat currently.
Came to Hope about 5 years ago which helped to socialise and provided a warm space with food.
Hope has very nice people which makes it a place to come to.
Sometimes help by soothing through donations.

My children! My son who is grown and my beautiful daughter who is no longer with us, they made me a mum. They are my first love. I never knew what unconditional love was before having them. I never realised why I was put on earth until I had them. they are my reason for breathing and trying to become a better person.

Who I am today wasn’t built overnight, the confident independent strong person most see from the outside ,although always been there, sometimes hidden behind the smile I have pulled myself out of some dark places, had my insecurities, and heartaches along my journey too.  I have been through quite a lot over the years but that has shaped the person I am now, of which I am quite proud.  Fiercely passionate and put my all in to what I do, and the people that surround me. Honesty & trust is huge to me, once broken there is no going back.  I’m always looking to shape myself to be a better version of me for my future journey whatever that may bring.

I am the most kindhearted but I could kill if needed.  I am on cloud nine until am in the gutter.  I laugh hysterically and I could cry a river.  I am generous to a fault but I will hoard and covet things.  I can go all day without eating then eat all day without thinking.  I am fun and excitable when drunk.  I am argumentative and nasty when drunk.  I would give my life for the world, yet the world owns me a living.  I am the second coming with love.  I am evil personified with hate.  I AM BIPOLAR.  This could describe anybody but a bipolar person will feel them stronger.  It’s a very tiring place to be for us.
