I'm 42 and lived in Nottingham all my life. I live with my partner and 7yr old son. I don't work due to being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease three year ago, but try to remain as active as possible. I enjoy art, poetry, reading, cooking, music, dancing and Pilate's/yoga. I've only just started writing poetry in the last month and find it helps me relax and express my feelings and emotions - find it quite therapeutic. Love reading poetry too.
