I've been interested in miniatures for 15 years since seeing a dolls house at a Fair. About the same time I got back into horse riding so that takes up much of my time, as well as working. I'm looking forward to retirement in the next few years both from work and horses, then I can concentrate on minis full-time. I have 2 children and 3 little grandaughters. I have just bought a Baby House Cabinet so I'm about to start my first foray into 144th scale.
