In my spare time I like to get involved in community projects ( on hold), 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 on it! N.B. I’m extremely glad of his company during periods of lockdown. 😺
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 in 2009 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. I was registered and had bought my plane ticket for The Gold Coast Australian Convention but COVID-19 put a stop to that.
I hope that when the world feels better I can go to future Conventions including the Gold Coast and Finland.
I have been to Uncons in Edinburgh, Swindon, Colchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Loughborough, Ipswich and Northampton, Boston, USA and Bordeaux, France. Newcastle in Oct 2019 had to be cancelled because of Covid but we hope that will be able to happen in the future.
Bookcrossing has changed my life! I look forward to the time when I can once again release books and travel to Conventions safely.
Info for the Birthday RABCK. - To support the wonderful Bookcrossing site may I request BC Labels or wings. Thank you :)
