Ex-Teacher, recent recruit to offshore banking.
Live on the Isle of Man with my boyfriend magicwanderer. Have also lived in England, Wales, New Zealand, Russia and Germany. I came to the island in 2002 for a teaching position in Castletown but it didn't work out, however I found the love of my life here and decided to stay . I now live in the big city of Douglas.
I studied German and Russian at Manchester University, then did a PGCE in German at Bangor. Worked in Cologne for two years, then came to the Isle of Man(I certainly move about a bit). My posts are a mix of friends' only and public.
I also maintain the televisionfree community.
