Hello from Ireland!
I love to craft, read, watch films, playing with my puppy and walking in nature. I enjoy travelling and having time to relax!
I find crafting very therapeutic as I have several ongoing mental health issues as well as health conditions.
I love being in nature and am blessed to live by the sea.
I work in the field of dementia care and find it fascinating and fulfilling.
I am part of the LGBTQI+ community. I am prochoice. I believe Black Lives Matter. I support indigenous lives. I know that not all disabilities are visible and have several invisible disabilities myself.
