May you always have a shell in your pocket and sand in your shoes
Living on the Isle of Wight, you're never far from a beach, and I know I'll never lose the thrill of hunting the shoreline for coloured gems of sea-glass and shells that come home to adorn window-sills or fill glass storm lanterns...or just to live in my pockets, reminding me of another perfect day at the beach.
But it wasn't always like this. Born and brought up in London, I moved to the Island fifteen years ago to be with The Sailor. Two little nippers followed soon after, and whilst officially they'll always, like me, be 'Overners', the Isle of Wight is our home.
Originally a director of lifestyle TV programmes, since moving to the Island, I have written for COAST Magazine, Style of Wight, the Isle of Wight County Press, and Olive Magazine's website. I also wrote a guidebook to the Isle of Wight for The Royal Hotel and, most recently, contributed to the cookbook Nammet. @pocketfulofstones is my Instagram account, showcasing my favourite facets of this beautiful island.
