Now you don’t normally get to read a journo’s bio when you read news stories or magazine articles, so you aren’t getting my life history here either.
I have a couple of degrees as well as the journalism qual, and I have a health services management qual too. From which you may cleverly infer that I spent most of my working life in the health service and/or journalism and PR.
As for my personal life, I have a partner who I met on the other side of the world more than a quarter of a century ago (although we both come from the UK), and now we live in Europe with our furry Spanish rescue dog – cross husky/GSD. He has his own blog.
In keeping with my worn, cynical journalistic image, I rarely get excited about anything. The only thing I am remotely passionate about is animals and animal welfare. You may notice an absence of animals/fish/birds in my recipe posts which – to the discerning reader – may make you wonder if I am vegetarian. I am. That’s another long-term commitment which also started twenty something years ago.
If you have any nosy questions add them below and I may or may not answer them.
Almost forgot. I’m not new to blogging – I have a load of other blogs, links on the pages above (My other blogs – yes?). The only reason I started this was because I was sick of blogger messing about with layout and production without my say-so, changing a perfectly functioning template and editing process into a total nightmare. A change is as good as a rest, so they say.
