10 things you may not know about Lesley's Passions updated.

1/  I love the outdoors, the Countryside and the sea. Whether it is walking along a beach with our dogs Boris and Flora or scrambling through the wild heather of  Scotland and the wild scenery of Dartmoor but my dream location is a beach, walk far enough and you are generally alone.

2/ We have a Caravan we named Ernie, a Caravelle for me to be comfortable at the beach when husband is off surfing in his Kayak and we call her Carrie.

3/ I had the confidence to get into a wetsuit, may not seem much to some but I had the fear being branded a beached whale so would not do it. It felt great and I was told no whales in sight!

4/ I love being creative, whether it is outlining my next article, my book, a story, baking or sewing.

5/ Sometimes I can write with noise and distractions and other times I feel I have to be as Stephen Fry admitted to on his blog, completely cutoff, no distractions such as the freshly baked bread just alarming for my attention right now!

6/ I love taking recipes and seeing how I can make it healthier or my version of it to suit our tastes. I even wrote an article on this and may even do a book if there is any interest.

7/ Fallen in love with Scotland not to live but to visit, and my husband encourage me to walk up my first mountain 2 years ago up, Glenmore, opposite Aviemore. Although it was not a Munro but a Graham it was still a mountain to me.

8/ Love the thrill of learning something new and how I can make a success out of it, obviously currently that is writing.

9/ I used to imagine as a child that I was floating, often in the playground, until the school bell rang when of course I would float back down again often with a bump!!

10/  Note to self check and check before publishing. So here is number 10: I simply love healthy debate not arguments but debating a subject with friends and if it can be washed down with a glass of red I am in heaven.

What 10 things do I not know about you, are you willing to share or even blog about it, if so leave me your link would love to read them.


  1. Agreed Lesley - now in my early forties I am finally embracing my passions full time - it's taken me too long!!

  2. Well as some of my readers know I recently turned 50 and decided to revamp the blog to share my passions with others. I could write just writing blog but I would only have writers for readers, So now I try to blog what we all like and is important to all of us, thanks for joining in Lizzi :-)
