I am a Higher Level Teaching Assistant working in Reception (4-5 Year olds). My favourite subject to teach is Literacy. I have started a library club at school and they have joined BC (LFLibraryClub) They love to receive books. Please pm me for the school address if interested. I wild release children's books on a Bookcrossing Bridge near my school and in my village.
In my spare time I like to get involved in community projects, potter about on my allotment, knit and of course I love to read!
I share my home with a lovely cat called Jackson whom I adopted from Cat's Protection. He had been a stray in a nearby village and was taken to the vets with an abcess on his paw. They named him Michael Jackson. That was a bit too weird for me but I felt that I could live with the name Jackson so now this white with black spots tom cat belongs to me and strays no more. I have made my bed and he lies in it!
Up until Oct 2008 I was a carer for my mum. When she passed away suddenly bookcrossers worldwide were very supportive.
Shortly after this I made the decision to attend my first convention and travelled to Christchurch, New Zealand where I had the most amazing time and met some super people.
Since then I have become a convention junkie!
I have been to the annual Conventions in Christchurch, Amsterdam, Washington DC, Gothenburg, Dublin, Oxford UK (I helped to organise that one), Melbourne, Athens , Oslo, Bordeaux and Mainz and I am heading to Australia for the Convention on The Gold Coast.
I plan to go to Finland next year.
I have been to Uncons in Edinburgh, Swindon, Colchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Loughborough, Ipswich and Northampton, Boston, USA and Bordeaux, France. I will be going to Newcastle in October.

Bookcrossing has changed my life!
