About me

My name is Margaret and I am in the youngest (and naughtiest, as I was once described) of three children to my parents.  My mother died very suddenly and unexpectedly more than 6 years ago, and since then I have been caring for, and caring about, my elderly father who is now 94. My siblings live some distance away and visit often, and my sister has Dear Old dad to stay a couple of times a year; but most importantly, they, and in particular my sister,  provide emotional scaffolding to me when needed.    I have been meaning to write about our adventures for some time, and having now decided to leave a much loved career, I think I will have the time to tell some stories – some funny, some sad, some angry.
