About Me

My photo
I live in Kent with my husband, toddler Tilly (henceforth known as Monkey) and another baby due in November. We have two cats, Duncan and Lady Macbeth, and four chickens who kindly lay us eggs daily. We live in the picturesque seaside town of Broadstairs. I enjoy reading, knitting and cooking. I'm trying to be a bit 'greener' (not sure how successfully), and to be a gentle parent. Extended breastfeeding and co-sleeping don't freak me out, we use cloth nappies and try to follow some of the ideals of Attachment Parenting. If that sounds as if I know what I'm doing, I don't! I am also a psychotherapist with an interest in Focusing-oriented therapy, and I have a small private practice in the area.

The Monkey's friends have started to get christened and 'named'. So far we have enjoyed two lovely days out at Matilda and Eva's special days, one was a Naming Ceremony and the other a traditional Catholic christening. It has inspired us to have 'something' for the Monkey, and we've decided to have a thanksgiving service (rather than a Baptism), followed by a festive party in the church hall. It will be close to Christmas, so I'm hoping there'll be mulled wine and mince pies amongst other things.
