I am a full time staff nurse in England and have recently joined Street Articles. Even though I work I still manage to find time to enjoy my hobbies. These are mainly needlecraft's. Including: knitting, sewing and crocheting. I also like writing and at present I am also teaching myself to draw and paint.

My mum taught me from a very young age how to do needlecraft's but I don't think that I gave her much option, as I loved to sit for hours with her practising the differ crafts. My personality also seems to direct me into hobbies that I can do with my hands and which involves using the brain (or little grey cells):-).

So, why I am here? as I said I also love writing and this seems like a great way to gain more experience and eventually perfect this skill. I have a host of hobbies. In fact they tend to stem from anything that I find really interesting such as technology and especially how computers work. My brother's are the culprits for that.

Anyway, I hope you will find the articles that I publish to be informative and enjoyable.
