About Me

(All pix by me unless otherwise stated)

How would I describe myself? I’m creative (draw, paint, trained graphic designer), love reading, gardening, going to the theatre and photography – – of course!

Married to Trusty Map Reader SK9007 : Hambleton Peninsula, Rutland Water by Kate Jewell
Two daughters of 28 SD4857 : New Management School Building, Lancaster University by Kate Jewell and 25 SX5148 : Wembury Beach at Low Tide by Kate Jewell two cats of 16 SK7929 : Anywhere will do! by Kate Jewell
I was born in 1950 in Tunbridge Wells TQ5838 : The Pantiles, Tunbridge Wells by Simon Lawson (ccl Simon Lawson) but still think I’m 21 according to my daughters.
I lived here until 1958 TQ7739 : Cherry Cottage by Richard Croft (ccl Richard Croft) and here SU6601 : Baffins Pond, Portsea Island by Stuart Buchan (ccl Stuart Buchan),
going to secondary school here SZ0792 : Talbot Woods: Talbot Heath School by Chris Downer (ccl Chris Downer)
until I went to art college here in 1969 SP3379 : Part of the precinct in central Coventry by Keith Williams (ccl Keith Williams).
We used to live here SK5904 : Most of SK5904 from the top of East Street car park by Tim Hallam (ccl Tim Hallam),
moved here SK6831 : Kinoulton Village Green by Tom Courtney (ccl Tom Courtney), where both daughters were born
and have lived in this street SK7929 : Church Lane, Eaton, Leicestershire. by Kate Jewell in SK7929 : Eaton, Leicestershire by Kate Jewell for nearly 20 years.

My first job was at a printers near here SP5898 : Saffron Road, South Wigston, Leicester by Kate Jewell second in an advertising agency near here SK5837 : West Bridgford by Dennis Turner (ccl Dennis Turner),
third for a children’s book publishers near here SK5903 : Autumn In Victoria Park by Tim Hallam (ccl Tim Hallam)
and fourth as a graphic designer in this office block SK5838 : Trent Bridge cricket ground by Stanley Howe (ccl Stanley Howe). More cricket watched than work done in the summer!

My last full time job was in SK5905 : Abbey Park Campus, Leicester College by Kate Jewell firstly as a lecturer and later as a programme manager in the Media Department, but have given that up because I got disillusioned by educational bureaucracy. (Someone suggested I’d given up work to devote more time to Geograph!)

Because I still miss the sea after 40+ years I would love to move to somewhere in Cornwall
like this SX4053 : Main street in St John by Kate Jewell or this SX4563 : Fore Street, Bere Ferrers by Kate Jewell or this SX1856 : Lanreath by Kate Jewell or this SX1357 : Tidal creek at Lerryn by Kate Jewell or – – –

I joined Geograph in July 2005 and quickly got hooked. Trusty Map Reader thinks I’ve got it so bad that he’s even threatened to confiscate my camera on occasion, although he does come on geographing trips sometimes. Honoured to be a Moderator, it gives me something to do when there’s nothing on the TV which is most evenings these days. Belonging is great; it’s like having a huge circle of friends even if they are all only at the end of a computer. And it gets me out and about, which is amazing as I was never one for leaving the car and striding out into the countryside.
It’s even led to me braving salt laden wind and crumbly cliff edge paths: SW8063 : High Place, Towan Head by Kate Jewell
Oh – and it’s taught me how to do grid references – I never did get the hang of those at school.
