I am an over stretched, thinly spread mother of 4 writing, teaching, tutoring and parenting in Somerset. My family gets first call on my time, writing is a close second, teaching brings in a bit of useful money and the housework gets neglected with glee.
This blog is about all the things I like to do. There will be the odd rant about things which get my goat and pieces about things which have caught my eye.
It will be full of all the things me and my children have enjoyed doing together over the last 14 years and the new things we are finding to do as we all get older. It is the story of all those little letting-gos as my lovely husband and I encourage our birds to spread their wings and fly.
I will be posting some of our favourite veggie family recipes, most of which can be cooked in 30 minutes or less with a toddler sitting on the work surface, an older child moaning about a grumbling stomach another one asking for homework help and yet another needing to be picked up from an after school club.
We spend a lot of time outside growing stuff and the garden has been my escape since they were tinies. I feel I am still being a good Mum while I’m planting seeds and pulling weeds accompanied by various small children digging holes, making fairy houses, climbing trees and holding tea parties. So I will be posting stuff about gardening with kids (and without) too.
I am also a freelance copywriter and photographer and an unpublished (as yet) fiction writer so I will be sticking some of my writing on here too as well as some tips and ideas which have come out of the fiction writers’ workshops which I run.
I hope you enjoy sharing bits of my life with me and that you will post a comment so I know you are out there!
