Hello, welcome to my website and thanks for stopping by. I am Judy, in my early fifties and decided that life definitely gets more interesting as it goes on!

Me and my long-suffering husband whom I refer to as Mr Grump in my blog

I am a wife and a mum and have worked with a brilliant team of community and hospital nurses as an Associate Nursing Practitioner. In fact, I admire them so much I have just started at University studying for my own Nursing degree!  It is a lovely job which is so rewarding plus I get to meet some wonderful people too. I was born in Somerset but have been living in Kent for most of my life. It is only recently that I have begun to realise just how beautiful the countryside is here;  it is a pleasure driving around visiting patients and admiring the views as I go! I have recently moved to a little coastal town and am lucky to have the sea on my doorstep as well as the beautiful countryside

I am one of six children so have a very large family, in fact, I have recently become a Great Aunty (I always thought I was anyway),  so our family has grown even bigger which of course gives me more to write about.

I have a beautiful daughter who is a typical teenager with the messy room and raging (being the operative word), hormones to go with it so I have a wealth of inspiration from my own family alone for my poems and little stories. I am also a prolific blogger and enjoy writing funny stories, anecdotes, and anything really that takes my fancy. Again, I always have plenty to write about, after all ‘there is nowt so queer as folk’ and I know plenty of characters!

My beautiful daughter whom I often refer to a ‘Miss Hap’ in my blog. She has inherited my accident prone genes!

Last but certainly not least, is our mischievous, adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Benji.

I am also a poet and the author of my debut book, ‘Rhymes of the Times.’  I love to laugh, and I love rhyming words too, so I joined the two together and my book was born. I am also working on another book in the series where I will be incorporating other types of poems, such as limericks which are a particular favourite of mine.
