Hello, I'm Phil, short for Philippa, when I ran the local playgroup, 'Aunty Philippa' was too much of a mouthful for toddlers to say, so I became just Phil and it's stuck.
I am 63 with three grown up children. Tanya, Vikki and Jonathan. I also have 2 teenage grandchildren and a step grandson of 10.
I've not always lived in Wales, I was born on Birmingham, England,?of an English mother and Welsh father. We moved from there to Wiltshire when I was 8?, and stayed there until I was 15, when we came to Wales?as my father was promoted. I married first time around in 1971 and moved into the house I'm still living in now, gosh only seems yesterday!!!
Until I underwent a major operation?I worked from home as a childminder. I'd done this for nearly 20 years, and I now worke on a voluntary basis for?a local charity.
