About This Blagger …er Blogger

Born in a hotel in England’s Westcountry, I had an unusual, adventurous childhood that encompassed everything from playing on railway tracks to sailing small boats to Africa (twice). I had only a patchy primary education and at seventeen I ran away to sea. (Actually my mother drove me to join my first ship and my father was the captain but you get the idea.) In five years I went from stewardess to deckhand to first mate and I am still a first mate (but I will sail as second mate if you pay me enough.)

The unusual, adventurous and rootless little girl has grown up, got stripes and an MA in Creative Writing but she hasn’t changed. A loner who was bullied at school and isolated by my gender at work, my best friend has always been a pen and paper. Now that technology has given me a platform, I’m writing for Shedward. Maybe I’ll entertain, anger or provoke thought but whatever the case it’s amusing me and that will do for now.

    I run the Strawbsweb site, the official Strawbs site. I saw your blog and would love to add it to the site. Is that OK?

    I’ve not seen this tour yet, but am going to Southend tomorrow. A bit like you., I’m really only going to see the Strawbs ….

      Hello Dick,
      I am a Strawbsweb subscriber! I know who you are πŸ™‚ Of course you can add my blog to your site if you think it is of interest.
      As I type this you are, hopefully, having your ears serenaded by Dave and the boys. Enjoy!
