My contact details, f-locked, are here.

I make jewellery from stuff I pick up, mostly on beaches. You can see (and buy) it here.

I am trying to reduce my personal library by selling some books -- and CDs -- on Amazon: here. (Also includes some of my father's books, mostly nautical).

Born, got educated, changed hair colour several times, attempting to avoid working for a living: flitted moth-like from fascination to fascination: loved / hated / was bored by a variety of people, books, music, films, theatre: nothing extraordinary.


My Amazon wishlist is here.
My Good Gifts 'wishlist' is here. Remember, you can never have too many braincells.
