Bragging rights
It seems I love studying. I have an MSc in Economics from Hanken in Helsinki, MA in Creative Writing from Bath Spa University and I'm Member of Association of Accounting Technicians.

Oh, and I've been married to the English sailor over 25 year now. That's worth bragging about if nothing else?
