I'm Antiq, a 59 year old Irish mom with two grown-up children.
I like reading (a lot), gardening, drawing and painting when the mood takes me, music (mostly classical) and messing about on my computer. I'm a huge fan of Terry Pratchett (RIP
), Sherlock, Firefly, Star Trek, LoTR, Thrones, Final Fantasy and costume dramas, among other things. Basically I'm a geek who was born a bit too early
I have a little rescued terrier mutt called Hobo, and several spiders I have decided to call pets because they refuse to be evicted. Besides, they nom on flies, which is fine by me.
