A little bit about myself: I am married, and live with my husband in Dalrymple Crescent (obviously). We both retired about five years ago. Before that I worked in a Research Centre at the University of Edinburgh. My background is in computing, and I was working with Social Scientists, and I found the combination of interests extremely useful when I came to do the research on Dalrymple Crescent.
Before retiring, we lived in the village of Inveresk, just outside Edinburgh. It is a beautiful place, but we decided that we were city people at heart, so moved to the Grange. Also, we had a very large garden, which was beginning to take over our lives.
While I was working, I was lucky enough to become involved in some European Union projects, which took me to many interesting places. Since we retired, we have continued to enjoy travelling, mainly in Europe.
My other hobbies include (in no particular order) bridge, badminton, knitting, bowling, cooking, – and meeting friends for a good gossip! I am also a volunteer at the Victorian Schoolroom.
