Hello and welcome to Grownupglamour , my name is Jill James and I live in Launceston, Tasmania,
Australia's island state.
I am the proud mother of two adult sons and a daughter ( who we sadly lost to a brain tumour
fifteen years ago).
I came across this quote by Nancy Milford in her book Voltaire in Love and felt it so reflected my thoughts at the time I began my blog.
" 'She was waiting , unconsciously, for that time revolution which often comes in the life of a woman
no longer young and directs the future course of her existence".
I feel that revolution quietly evolves in all of us and it fills and lifts my heart.
I have always enjoyed dressing as a means of self-expression and strongly believe this plays a major
role in our well being as we age. I am a keen gardener and enjoy growing heritage roses for their beauty as well as their history . I love to travel both in Australia and recently , for the first time in many years , overseas to Europe.
I do hope you enjoy a peek at my world. My email address is james_jill @hotmail.com.
