I live in a little village in the middle of Sherwood Forest - Robin Hood country. I retired from teaching 12 years ago, as my health gave up on me. I have an underactive thyroid, a pituitary that is giving up on me almost 30 years after surgery to remove a tumour, and I've recently been diagnosed as diabetic; all my recipes are diabetes-friendly. Despite bits and pieces falling out of use (joints and back mainly) I still love to cook. I like to give my own version of classic Indian recipes, with variations. I also love handicrafts such as X stitch, dressmaking, knitting and crochet, and I've recently joined a local choir, having studied music at College.
'Most anything! I've eaten some strange things in my time - whole quails, octopus, squid, swordfish, horse meat - and would love to be in the US purely from the cheapness and availability of things like prawns and clams, as I adore seafood. I see US recipes calling for a pint of prawns and think about the cost here in the UK....I've just cooked 1/2 lb king prawns and they cost me the equivalent of $10 US. When I was a child we lived in the Far East (dad was a soldier) and we used king prawns for fishing bait because they were so cheap. Wish I'd been old enough to appreciate it!
