I chose the pen name bac2basics because I truly believe that in todays quick fix, throw away, fast food, consumerist society some of us are beginning to loose sight of what´s really important in our lives.

I will be writing about anything and everything that grabs me at the time. Whatever pops into my head, be it recipes, money saving tips, poetry, memories , spiritual occurrences, health problems, travelogues etc will all at some stage be published on HP.

My interests are, animals, nature and wildlife, plants and gardens, learning and adapting Spanish cookery, music and spiritualism, Oh and now writing hubs. Aside from the writing I am now in contact with some very interesting people, and it´s nice to be part of the hubpages family.

My working life has been mainly in the catering / hospitality industry . I have Certificates in supervisory management and have also attended night school for classes in horticulture and Indian head massage. I also studied on a distance learning course with the RHS ( Royal Horticultural Society ) Since joining hub pages I have also won 2 hub nuggets and the engaging writers accolade.

I will write about whatever topic grabs my attention, so don´t be surprised if something totally unexpected pops up from time to time.

I moved to Spain from the north of England 14 years ago with my lovely husband, but unfortunately lost him to Cancer 12 years ago.
I am Mum to one daughter and I have two lovely granddaughters .

OH. And my real Name is Anne..Though I prefer Annie and that´s what most people call me.
