Age 69, born in 1944.
Patricia is up-front, vivacious full of youthful energy and has a passion for young adults and their troublesome issues.
She advocates ‘mindfulness’.
She has worked in cosmetics, fashion and ran a pharmacy and café in the Outback, in Australia – with a new baby in tow, still wearing a mini skirt and false lashes.
She is now manager of The Futon Shop, in Norwich.
Her boyfriend of twenty years, has dementia.
“He was an old rocker, an engineer, a psychologist and hilarious. He is still hilarious and makes me laugh a lot. He is the dearest, kindest, funniest person and when I ask him if he is happy he says, ‘everything is just nice’.
“I am grateful for what I have I say to myself, whatever will happen in life will happen. I trust good things will happen and I just leave it to God or whoever.
“I sleep really well and just say dear God you just do what you think is right.”
