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.

Hold on to your hats!

I am floating on a cloud of excitement-anxiety-adrenaline-disbelief! For a while now we have had a plan to leave sunny Sidcup and move to the Kent coast permanently at some point in the future. It seems that the future is now! DH and I viewed, and fell in love with, a house last Saturday, made an offer on the spot and then spent the next few days panicking and rushing around trying to get our house on the market. Fast-forward to today and we have an approved mortgage AND an offer on our house. Fingers, toes and everything crossed that...
My little girl will be brought up by the seaside; 
We will be within walking distance of the beautiful Viking Bay (and, more importantly, Morelli's ice cream parlour);
Duncan and Lady Macbeth will no longer be persecuted by the evil-est ginger cat that ever there was.
