About Me

I am a retired Deputy Head Teacher. Once I left work I needed a new focus. As well as looking after my great nephews, I have now made it my life's work to help as many people as possible. I like to enable people, which takes the form of advising them, finding them good deals, gift finding, gardening, cleaning, admin. work, driving them about and supporting them wherever possible.
I have a large circle of friends and acquaintances to whom I can promote items.
