I simply love opening our home, cooking, baking, welcoming friends and guests into our home. We live in a barn conversation with fields all round, and our own wood and wild flower meadows.Hard work and giving joy and pleasure to both old and young and creating real warmth to all who come here. My husband loves books and has a small library. We do not get time to travel much, due to our farming life, but Sweden, Portugal, Canada and USA are all places we have traveled to.
