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.

Happy Birthday Grandad!

My dad was 60 years old on 2nd October, and to celebrate we went to dinner at The Vine restaurant in Sevenoaks (one of our favourites and highly recommended). We had a delicious meal and Tilly enjoyed seeing Nanna & Grandad, Uncle Alex and Great-Nanna Rose. Grandad had some lovely presents: a camera from Alex, some Bollinger and a bottle of 1974 Malt Whisky, some Bertie Bassetts and two framed photos of the monkey. Nanna must have been a bit tipsy as she told us all that she can't believe that Tilly is really her Grand-daughter (in a 'wow she's so incredible' rather than 'eueeeew THAT belongs to us?' way!
