My name is Carole (obviously!!) and I live in the North West of England with hubby Graham. My two sons have now fled the nest but they still come home for food and clean clothes occasionally!
My earliest remembered books are Little Women and Black Beauty. I also loved the Enid Blyton Mystery Series featuring the 'five find-outers and dog'. I used to feel like the happiest girl in the world when I found a new one had come out.......aah happy memories.
My background is secretarial, shorthand and typing but these days I am self-employed. My work takes me all round the North West of England as an Auditor for Costa Coffee. They're probably not so well known in the US but in Europe they're one of the biggest Coffee Shops. I travel round ensuring that they are making the coffee to Costa standards ..... I go to Universities, Hospitals, Colleges, Offices, Leisure Centres, Hotels, etc. etc. I do love it but, unfortunately, it doesn't leave me with as much time as I would like for reading.
When I'm not reading or blogging I enjoy getting out and walking in our lovely countryside with Graham. I am interested in history and I've been researching mine and Graham's family trees for several years now.
I hope to see you soon!
