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.
Here's Monkey enjoying her Treasure Basket, which I finally moved into the lounge after leaving it languishing unused in a corner of the dining room. I'm glad I did- she loves it!
Treasure Baskets rock!
Her favourite things so far are some pieces of ribbon and a sponge. Last night we played a fun game of peek-a-boo with the playsilks. Since we brought the basket in, I haven't even got her other toys out of their storage!
