After a gap year lasting over 12 years where we resided in South wales UK. we were able to do so much travelling and exploring that the time just flew! As from June 2011 we returned back in the beautful city of Perth West Australia, where we intended to finally retire but the lifestyle there for us was definately too slow and We found Perth to be too isolated compred to other states that we have lived in .... So in June of 2013 we returned to England this time, where we are close to Europe. We intend to keep enjoying traveling. I have been very lucky in being able to have lived in many countries since I was a small child. Moving to what was then East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) I guess my parents had the travel bug - and that was the first of many moves which included, Germany, America, East Africa, where I met my Cornish husband 50 years ago and of course Australia where we initially spent 36 years. We are celebrating my 70th birthday and our 51st Wedding Anniversary lthis year. Our two pet cats, Sita and Rama,(brother and sister) they have been ruling our household since November 08... they are delightful,they are Bengals I have loads of interests everything from Travel, historic places and buildings, Cooking and boating... The list seems to just go on. My problem is that I kind of forget my age and want to do so much, I am going to be really angry if I die before I get to finish what I set out to do - joking apart, aint life great! - even with all the ups and downs we all have. Pet peeve are racists - caused mainly by ignorance, I was one of just three europeans in boarding school, and had loads of friends - no one ever mentioned the fact that it was me that was different! I do dislike recipes that have lots of tinned and package food in it - I much prefer to cook from scratch and am not keen on all the preservatives that are in cans and packaged food. I have a good sense of humor and love to laugh - not at others, but with others. I am one of the Hosts of the Africa Forum and now the wonderful new TOTM which is been a real challenge, but so much fun - Thanks for taking the time to come and vist here, hope to see you round Food.com CODE:
