THE OTHER HALF.
This blog is going to be all about my wife and soul mate Sue. She would be the first to admit that academically she is a bit lacking, mainly due to the fact that she missed over 18 months schooling. When about 10 Sue had an accident injuring her knee/leg quite badly, needing her to be in plaster from toes to groin. Sue at the time lived about one and a half miles outside a small village near Bidford on Avon in Warwickshire, their house (Tied) was across four fields accessed by a very rough track. At home were her Gamekeeper father and house wife/book keeper mother and a younger sister. In order to get to school each day they cycled across these fields then left their bicycle's by the cattle grid and caught a school bus the five or six miles to school. In those days most people didn't own a car and Sue's family were not the exception, therefore they could not get her to school daily.
To make up for this she is very adept at many other skills, these include, Passing both her car and motorcycle test at the first attempt. At home she has set her hand over the years to carpet laying, painting, wallpaper hanging, curtain making/hanging etc. also an extremely and much sought after cook as a job for twenty three years. Her hobbies include Lace making, dress making, knitting, Crochet, and a five year stint as a florist/floral arranger. She is also a fairly competent photographer and Fisher women,winning at sea fishing, several NFSA medals and winning several ladies competitions, now turning her hand (with me) to Coarse fishing, picking it up very quickly. During the Winter months she dabbles with painting, mostly in oil, also occasionally in water colours. Some of these (I think they are quite good) I will put on a future blog. For now I will show the ones she does as a quick relaxing time, these, as she puts it are "cartooney" pictures and are not easily criticised as they dont contain real people, Animals etc. She intends printing these off to make into personalised xmas cards.
