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.

Overblown myth

>I have a secret knitting project
Secret as in you're not showing anyone yet, or secret as in national security? *blink*

>I had two wedding days and three honeymoons (but just the one husband).

Sister, you gotta tell me how you managed the 3 honeymoons, yessir!

Have you been to Australia and not seen a spider then?!! They kill people!!

Secret as in, a gift for someone who reads this blog. Although I do believe that knitting might just be able to save the world.

3 honeymoons, oh boy I was very lucky. A week in the Maldives, 5 days in New York, and a week in Ramsgate!
