A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I am a 64 year old lady living in the Llantwit Major area.  I have Aphasia which means that I have some difficulties with verbal communication.  I move around my adapted property with my electric wheelchair.  I am a friendly person with a wicked sense of humour, who loves antiques and the music of the 70s.  I have a garden that I am hoping to turn into a project with a little help.
