I am from Trinidad, came to United Kingdom at the age of 10, went to schooling, studied and trained to be a nurse. I still live in United Kingdom, loves my food! No, wonder the call me a big gal!

I was a qualified nurse for over 30 years, but due to an accident at work, am unable to continue nursing. I have now retired on medical grounds, it took me quite a while to accept that I will never return to nursing, I suffer occassionaly from my knees. I do have good and bad days.I am learning to adjust to changes.

On top of that I have discovered that I have Retinitis Pigmentosa, RP for short. ( Usher Syndrome) I have been told that I have to face the prospect of slowly deteriorating sight. I am trying to learn to adjust, and is grateful that at what sight left I can use. I have various types of low vision aids to enhance the quality of my life. I have very large keyboards letters attached to the keyboards, a magnifying glass (software) I view texts using the largest and of course with the aid of the accessories in the start icon of Microsoft, I am able to adjust to the computer to suit my needs.


I am married with four adopted children who are not related by birth to each other. Their ages in 2007 are 31, 29 and both 20. (They are not twins but were born within three weeks of each other.) They are still living home with us. And like all parents, we have and continue to guide them through their stages of their lives. The manifestation of their upbringing reward with positive results. We are close as a family and communicate and enjoy their company.
The wonderful joy of being a parent is their appreciation for not only for hubby and me but also to their natural mothers who gave them lives.
