I live in the UK and am married to Richard, and have a son, Kieran. We bought our first house together in about 2006 and have slowly been decorating it and sorting out the garden. We just about completed decorating the downstairs, when our old cat died, and we went on a waiting list for a new Kitten. Our new kitten, Kizzie, arrived within days of the new leather sofas, so we are having to keep them covered up with throws. In my photos, you can see the centre of Clowne, the small North East Derbyshire town where we live. I was a legal and medical secretary before having my son, but now am a full time mum and keep two blogs and an artists' website, which all keep me busy. I am a member of an art group and my art blog, "Jewel's Arty Blog" has updates on what I get up to with them, and my own artwork, plus other local crafts. I have a belly dancing blog "Jewel's Bellydancing Blog" for my other hobby, which I do at home and find it very good for keeping me fit. I hope to upload some more photos soon.
