About me

Hi, I'm Ali.  I'm a 53 yo single mum to 3 boys 32, 29 and 21.

When life doesn't turn out the way you planned, you've got 2 choices.  Stay down or get back up on your feet.  Rather than focus on what I’ve lost, I now focus on what I’ve gained.  I have 3 lovely boys, one mad lab and even madder chickens.  I have a job I love quite like teaching 6 and 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 (hopefully 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 :-)
