Please tell us about yourself?
I am nearly 60, and I've been divorced for a long time. I am living with my widowed Mum who is an avid propagator of cacti and succulents. I have worked, generally on short term contracts, in manufacturing or aircraft maintenance for many years but I am now effectively a full time carer. I am interested in more or less anything to do with computers.
What's your story about?
Mum is still growing cacti and succulents at the age of eighty eight and still selling enough to cover the electricity bills. The hobby started on the current site and grew in the midlands. On retirement the collection returned to the site of its foundation. When I attended the initial introduction to this workshop, everyone's response was always the same, "Talk about the cactus".
What did you enjoy most about the workshop experience?
I don't get out much and the workshop gave me the opportunity to meet a few new people and to play with some fascinating new software. I had a story to tell and am sure it will reach a greater audience on the BBC website than it would on my own.
