Hello

I've been reading and browsing discussions on here for years and thought it was perhaps time I joined properly. If my usual membership of mailing lists is anything to go by I'll probably be much more of a lurker than a contributor.

Age 59
Location Carnoustie
SLOC / children none (but four nieces, a great niece, a godson, an adopted nephew and three sponsor children!)
Pets currently one cat
Favourite book: Exile, School at, Jo of - and a soft spot for Bride, because it was so long until I got a copy. Favourite characters : probably young Jo, Frieda, Tom, Bride, Con - but it does change depending on which I've been reading :)

How I got into the CS - aged c 10, a friend lent me her mother's childhood copies. The first one I owned was Triplets, a birthday present when first published.

I found out about the CBB through the GirlsOwn mailing list and as I said have been reading off an on for c 8 years.
