So before I go any further I guess I will let you know a few facts about myself.
I am a Virgo - Virgo's are highly intelligent (chuckle), interested in everything and everyone and happy to be busy with sometimes many jobs and hobbies on the go. Many Virgo's are good with their hands. Their nit-picking ways can infuriate their family and colleagues (another large chuckle )
Like so many of us I juggle many roles - Wife, Mother, Mother-in-law and grandmother
I am very lucky to have an understanding and easy going Husband, two handsome sons and 4 grandchildren
My favourite colour - well their are so many, but I can tell you I don't like brights.
I have a bit of a fetish for shoes
I collect hearts ( I know that sounds a bit weird) I have many though out the home ... dust collectors as my family would say.
