I am a full time mum of 2 beautiful young girls. In my spare time - the little I have - I am an avid reader, editor/proofreader, amateur photographer and a pretty slow runner.

I learned a little bit about photography many years ago when I was a teacher. I had a one day crash course before being asked to teach it for a semester. I loved everything about it, especially the dark room.

This is my third year on 365 and I have learned so much. Earlier this year (2014) I upgraded my camera to a lovely Nikon 5200, which I love and am still learning about. I love the challenges on here especially the Get Pushed ones as they really do push me and make me try things I never thought I could do.
