JOB DESCRIPTION

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I am a 74 year old woman who lives in my own property with my husband.  I was born and brought up in Ely in Cardiff, later moving to Llandaff North.  Between the ages of 17 to 21 I worked as a trainee pharmacist in Boots, however, gave this up when I got married.  I met my husband on a blind date and have been married for 53 years.  I have three children and previously I loved to bake and do flower work for wedding cakes for friends. I enjoy being creative and arty.  In the past I enjoyed reading and going to the opera with my husband.  I do like watching the birds in the garden.
