Carol Wyer

Who am I? I am a desperate housewife who enjoys drinking wine and lives with a grumpy old retired man.  Well, not entirely true. To be slightly more serious, I am someone who loves to laugh, and more importantly, to make others laugh. Laughter really is a tonic and if I can make a few people chuckle each day, then I am a very happy, desperate housewife.

I think deep down I’m a frustrated comedienne. I really should have taken the plunge and become a stand up comic.  I did the next best thing though and became a teacher. Life threw me a couple of curve balls and I changed direction, becoming a personal trainer in my forties. Those were the hedonistic days when I could touch my toes. Nowadays, even if I placed M& M’s between them, I haven’t the enthusiasm to reach them.

Life hasn’t been straightforward. But is it for any of us? Serious health issues got in the way. At one point I found myself paralysed after a procedure didn’t go as planned. Fortunately, I made a good recovery. Following that episode, I decided to take ‘life by the horns’. Determined to get as much out of it as possible, I became involved in all sorts of activities.  I took up flying helicopters, quad biking, had a go at track racing, camel riding, scuba diving, kick boxing, clay pigeon shooting, pole dancing and a few sensible activities too like painting.

Being a linguist, I can speak a few languages and am obsessed by travel. I have spent many years living abroad. I travelled all over Europe, and to many other destinations, but there are so many more places I would like to visit. I am tempted to take up a grown-up gap year and go somewhere special, maybe to some slum part of India where I could help teach underprivileged children, or to the Seychelles and help rescue turtles. We are never too old for adventure, are we? Even my 80-year-old mother hotfoots it to Cyprus regularly, where she hosts all night parties and Karaoke sing-songs.

Although I travel frequently, you’ll still often find me at home in rural Staffordshire where I spend my time now with my husband who moans about the weather and complains when we have to put the heating back on in July! Cheers!


Please be sure to share this post with your friends who can't get enough to read, or need to smile! And we'd love nothing more here at JLB Creatives than if you visited Carol's links below - and better yet, bought some of her awesome books! 

Until next week - 
Stay casual, live life to the fullest, and have a piece of chocolate for me!
