Pardon the quality of my image (see above) but I do not photograph well, it’s a minor miracle that the camera used is still intact. I usually prefer not to be photographed, as I cannot stand to see my face anywhere!
I am Jaye, the ‘oily rag’ of this establishment and usually prefer to stay in the background. Not that I am the shy retiring type, but usually far too busy to be very sociable. I have a feeling this is all about to change and that I will have to make more time for all my many hobbies and interests.
Since we decided to self publish our books, all my other interests have had to take a back seat. And as I am not half as clever as I want to be, they may well have to leave the country for a while. Well, some of them can but not all. I am an avid Bonsai fan and have my own collection that demands my attention in the growing season or they will die. (it’s a bit like having children)
I have always preferred to be kept busy, although I did think that now I am over 70 I might be able to relax a bit more, but I don’t think I could do that, not really. I’m too nosey. I have to be doing or looking or trying something new. I make plans in my head, knowing that I am probably wasting my time. But I just can’t help it.
For someone who absolutely loathes computers, I think I have learnt an awful lot. Not that much really, when you consider how much I still don’t know. But as long as there is life in this old body, I will keep on trying, and you never know, our books might just be a little bit successful one day!
It won’t be for the lack of trying, believe me!
