Well, hello world indeed. I am, for my sins, a grumpy green granny – an environmental journalist of long standing, specialising in the world of water (which may or may not account for the wrinkles).

I have three grandchildren, much adored, and two dogs (ditto). I live in deepest, darkest Wales and have a husband as a pet. I am currently writing a ‘care and training of husbands’ book for anyone who may be interested – I am intending to send a review copy to Cesar Milan!

I hope the blogs are enjoyable. Writing will occur when the old brain fuses and flickers into life.
