I'm f/t self-employed as the co-owner and manager of a art gallery/shop/exhibition space. I write poetry for fun and I do them Pam Ayres style. I put the odd couple of swear words in some of my poems but never f or c words. I'm getting my poems together in book form to have them published. Happily married to international artist, Mark Hilsden! I live and work in Cumbria, UK but am originally from Worcester. LOVES animals and am an animal rights supporter as you can see on my Twitter account: CraftyBoo@FrizzleChickenB I'm on Instagram as: floppiefloo and have another blog: by WordPress. Have done a variety of jobs over the years before going self-employed.

I'm so glad you're cruising some of the 'oldie-goldies'. I have enjoyed this site from Day 1.There weren't that many of us ten years ago, and many of us actually knew each other in person here in the north of England. It was a fine experience! Now, I'm ten years older, and not so social, and not sure if there still is an active poets' performing 'circle' in the Greater Manchester Arena. But I value the 'world venue' highly.

A huge welcome to WOL Phillippa.

Oh! how we need a sense of humour here.

I am quite excited at the new input you will bring to our friendly gathering of poets old and new.

I am pleased you are publishing your stuff... will Mark add to illustrate your words?
