About Me

I was born and raised in Yorkshire, England; where I continued to live until 2007.  In June of that year, my husband, myself and our feline family moved to Ireland, and we’ve been here ever since.

I’m never still, I find the world too compelling to ignore and the only time that I really sit down is when I’m at my computer or in the car.  Photography is a big part of me and if I haven’t got a camera in my hand, I’m either reading or scouring the internet for inspiration and admiring the works of others.  My other interests include cats, scuba diving, reading, and a love of the 1940’s/1950’s.



I’d like to thank Lorraine for the fabulous pictures she’s taken of me (as shown).  For more examples of her amazing photographs check out Lorraine O’Donovan.

    • Thanks Yvonne, I’m looking forward to reading your blog also. I hope you enjoy my posts. I absolutely love photography and I never have a camera out of my hands whether it’s my DSLR or iPhone, although it is a balancing act between taking and editing these days. So much to do and so little time 😉

  13. Hey there Newbie Spikey!
    (for your info, a Spikey is the term for folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    Thank you… I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    Blogging since June 2013, my aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations, opinions and lighter-hearted stuff thrown in for good measure.

    I normally keep to a couple of posts a day, maybe 3-4 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…
