I used to be indecisive…

…but now I'm not so sure

About me

A quick snapshot:  I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, teacher and reluctant domestic engineer.

I currently live in southern California, having moved from the south of England.  Originally I come from Scotland although I did stop off in Qatar, where I lived and worked for a while.

When I grow up I would like to be a successful blogger with more than 2 regular readers to whom I am not related!

Update – February 18th 2013

I have achieved my aim of more than 2 regular readers who are not members of my family!  Hooray!

Now I need to think of another ambition…   🙂

Update – February 19th 2018

I’m still trying to think of that other ambition, but living somewhere warm and sunny for a few years might have been it, and I have achieved that recently!

  18. Hi Elaine,
    I work at St Andrews Aquarium and your swimming pool is now our seal pool! I love your photograph and with your permission I would like to add it to our collection of old photos on the wall in our coffee shop. We’ve got photos of the site going back to 1935 and we are always on the look out for more to show the history of the place. Andy

  27. Hello Elaine,

    I am very interested in your post on the Step Rock Pool, St Andrews and was hoping that you would get in contact with me to share some of your memories and the photograph you posted. I am preparing a small exhibition this year and I am trying to gather memories of this once loved place!



  28. “The Daily Post” weekly photo prompt brought me here. I relate (indirectly, of course.)

  29. Congrats! You deserve it!
