HELLO MY NAME IS JANE HOWAT. I WAS BORN IN LONDON BUT IMMIGRATED TO NEW ZEALAND IN 1956 WITH MY PARENTS. IN 1976 I CAME TO AUSTRALIA AND MARRIED.
I have been married for 40 years now and we have three lovely children and one grandson! I worked in a bank until I had a family, then in retail. I am now retired.
I wanted to be part of this project to see how many Janes there are out there - maybe even famous ones!
I think my mum just liked the name Jane. I have liked my name more as I have gotten older. I also like names ending with an 'a', like Isabella.
I'm not plain Jane, I'm me!
