About me

My Name is Jackie Townsend. I live in the S/E of England not to far from London, a place called Leigh-on-Sea, Essex. My Back Garden is approx 60ftx60ft, Front Garden is big and set to a large driveway and garden infront of the windows and front door, I will have to measure it one day lol, I'm the one who tries to maintain the garden, I'm finding a bit hard going now as there is sometimes heavy lifting involved because of my revamps. My Husband give's me a hand with anything I can't manage, like cutting the odd tree down & getting the roots up
I'm into Photography (still learning) One of my camera's is a Nikon D7100 which I love but I'm still trying to work some of the bit's & pieces out on it Duh! I'm a bit slow on taking thing's in. I have been useing my Finepix S9600 to put pic's on here. I love posting now to friends in Canada & France.
All for now. Jackie x

Update again, Pebbles is now coming up for 13years, she's a clean girl, always lets us know when she needs to go out in the garden, still have the occasional night when she needs to go out LOL
