Job: journalist and author, so somewhat cynical about the Internet which threatens the culture of writing on which my living is based. Husband Jamie and I live cheerily among lots of books and no TV in an overcrowded home. I hurry about by bicycle and probably annoy people. I’m currently studying for a BA (Divinity) at Maryvale Institute, and loving it. I loathe instant coffee,extreme feminism, narrow-mindedness, bigotry, cold pasta, “inclusive language” and stewed tea. Am happy attending a Mass in the Ordinary Form, love good hymns. I like dropping in to Westminster Cathedral for weekday Mass, especially the glorious sung Mass at 5.30pm, which makes me glad to be a Londoner. Am extremely fond of my nephews, nieces, great-nephew, great-niece, and godchildren and I also like buttered toast, sticky chocolate cake, rain,old-fashioned detective stories, Pope Benedict XV1, Pope John Paul II, making jam, winter teatimes, sleeping out of doors on warm summer nights, Christmas, Pimms,ginger wine, and making patchwork quilts.
