  • Description

    Hiya, my name is Angie and I'm originally from Glasgow and live in Wiltshire. I work as a psychiatric nurse and have worked in lots of different environments, including addiction. I practice yoga and Shiatsu massage and have worked at festivals doing workshops. About 10 years ago I started my own small business making mosaics, Groovetastic Mosaics, and have enjoyed providing workshops making mosaics at festivals, community events and parties.
    (Link to my website to see more images of mosaics: http://angiesingh2010.wixsite.com/groovetasticmosaics)
    I love being around animals and I have ridden horses over the years and recently started taking lessons to improve my skills and love it! My children are now 19 and 21 and I want to use my free time to travel and be part of a community, transferring our skills and having fun! I can travel for up to 3-4 weeks at a time and speak a little French (learned at school) and I'm currently learning Spanish.
    Looking forward to new adventures!

  • What skills do you have?

    I have worked as a psychiatric nurse in different environments for almost 30 years and have a particular interest in addiction issues. Communication (in English) is a skill I have learned by practising with a wide mix of folk from all kinds of backgrounds and situations.
    I can cook and really enjoy making new dishes - especially veggie and curries. I have worked in bars and restaurants and enjoy working in any kind of hospitality with guests.
    I have practiced yoga since my early 20's and love it.
    I can Hulahoop reasonably well and like to keep fit and enjoy swimming, especially outdoors...in the heat!
    I like keeping fit and go to the gym regularly and like to go for long walks or cycles in the countryside around where I live.
    I have made mosaics over the last 10 years or so and have taught classes in the local college.
    I am also happy to do general odd jobs and tasks like painting and decorating, house cleaning and I love children so would be happy to look after and entertain children of any age.

  • What else ...

    I am an enthusiastic and outgoing person and love meeting people, swapping stories and ideas and learning about different cultures. I love art and did a degree in art history with the open university when my children were small. I have given talks on art history locally and think it's a great way to learn about the world, through the perspective of art. In my current role as a mental health nurse working in the criminal justice system, I have participated in and ran training sessions for fellow professionals and am happy in a teaching role.
