I was born in a small mining town in Yorkshire then moved over the border into Nottinghamshire where I still live.
I'm mum to four grown up kids, wife to Jeff, Nanna to Benjamin, Harriet, Eric and Millie and slave to a Jack Russell terrier called Milo. I don't have any exciting hobbies but I love entering competitions - recent win was a patio table and chairs, and 6 bottles of choice plonk.
I read a lot, obviously, and recently I've been researching my family tree. Mum's family have always believed that they're related to G. K. Chesterton, but to date I've found no evidence to support this. However, I have found one very interesting scoundrel who spent some time in Derby jail. It was in the early 1800's so he probably just stole a loaf of bread...hopefully we don't have a serial killer in the family!
