Rosalind Waite moved to Dartmoor from Kent in 1983, after 11 years as a PA in London. Rosalind took the challenge of leaving her job in London; moving 250 miles away from her family and friends, and giving birth to her first child two months later!
That’s the girl who, after two children and seven years as a stay at home Mum, started working as a Secretary at the Duchy of Cornwall Office in Princetown in 1989. The job was full and varied, as the Duchy of Cornwall owns over 27,000 hectares of land on Dartmoor, and in her 25 years with the Duchy, Rosalind worked for three Land Agents; Colin Sturmer; Chris Gregory and Tom Stratton; two of whom were subsequently promoted to become the Land Steward of the Isles of Scilly.
Rosalind left the Duchy to write, and her first book, “I’m Getting A Life” is a short and punchy book of simple life skills, many of which have been gleaned during her life, and her busy job! She also gives an enjoyable, thought provoking talk which simply encourages happiness in your life, enjoyed at Tor Royal Farm on Dartmoor by the Women In Farming Group, just before Christmas. If you wish to book a talk, please make contact with Rosalind at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“I’m Getting A Life” is available to buy on Amazon and also as a download for your Kindle.
