Who is Sue?
Not telling, you can all have your own images Very Happy
--ooeerrr, but they may go totally wrong when we meet --as I hope we will, so I'd better spill some beans.
Born ?- yes I was, my Mum said.
A Yorkshire lass, brought up on rugby league, in Hull.
From A levels to Manchester Royal to study -and pass -Physiotherapy.
Moved from there to Consett, 'twix Newcastle and Durham, then to Cambrideshire then to Surrey. Now in the beautiful land of Wales.
After doing the "rounds" in Physio' I specialised with adults who have a learning disability, and did so for 17years. Gosh sounds a long time when you see it in print. Its a field I really loved, I have learnt an awful lot about human nature, building up relationships and communication. I used to be very shy --no laughing in the back row there- and I'm sure this work has helped a great deal. But after 27 full time years in the NHS I decided that I was fed up with the politics that made "work" difficult if you tried to fight against it to what you believed. So after moving to Wales I decided on a complete change in al my life and Im now a self employed support worker and liking it. I ran, in a fashion about 22 years ago when we had 2 spotty dogs that I had to keep up with, then it fizzled as they got old. Re-started 8 years ago as a bet to do a 10mile race-- and never looked back. Got into triathlon after finishing my 1st marathon and after 6 months of disciplined training there was an anticlimax of not knowing what else to do, so did a tri-a-tri and moved on from there. I must say if it hadnt been for everyone being soooooo motivatiing and friendly on TT I would not have ventured this far.

It is with great sadness that I write of the passing of Alan.
He died before he should have, we still had a list of "things to do".
It was unexpected and sudden but he didn't suffer.
I put on here thinking friends would look and know, although many of you may know via FB.
I believe in fate, Alan's time was called, he was taken to the next chapter of his life, and I have to start my new chapter.
We had nearly 10 years together and I thank TriTalk for bringing us together.
Happy memories everyone x x x
