My name is Bernice Pond SRN (State Registered Nurse) and I'm a happily retired nurse. For 40 years, I had an extensive, eventful and fulfilling career. During my time working in the nursing profession, I was able to work with many people from all countries and walks of life. I have seen and heard pretty much everything you can think of, little shocks me those days. Now that I have retired, I have been able to turn my attention towards three neglected passions of mine - reading books, writing books and trying to bake lovely cakes and biscuits! I’m currently enjoying the comforts of a writing desk and an unlimited supply of coffee and biscuits. I share my home with one busy daughter, one grumpy husband and two demanding cats.
