About me




Hi, I'm Ali.  I'm a 51yo single mum to 3 boys 30, 27 and 18
Life has thrown me a few curve balls in the last few years.  Rather than focus on what I’ve lost I now focus on what I’ve gained.  I have 3 lovely boys and one mad lab.  I have a supportive (and rather gorgeous) partner who has challenged me to look at life in different ways.  I have a job I love quite like teaching 7 year olds.  I have my own wee house mortgage free, no debt and I even have some savings.  However, I don’t have much of a pension  due to years of part time teaching so am careful with my money.  I'm saving for my (early) retirement.

I love cooking and have embraced the challenges that come with a gluten and dairy free diet.  I can knit, sew and turn my hand to most DIY tasks.  Just as well as this house needs a lot of work!

Thanks for visiting :-)
