Once upon a time there was a little girl who loved to read. Her bedroom was stacked with books, organised by series and then by height. Sometimes she played at being a librarian, except she really, really didn’t like people actually borrowing her books.
When the little girl was older she went to university where she was encouraged to spend all day reading and writing her own stories. There she found beer, and life was fun.
Now, as all tales must, we come to darker times. The girl had become a young woman and so she had to find a job to pay for food. The only job about was in a bank, which was not a great place to find interesting books. And so she laboured for many years until one day the bank closed down and she was set free.
The young woman by this time had a family, a beautiful and confident girl of 7, named Sackgirl, and a stubborn and handsome boy of 3, who was named BotBoy. She and her husband, Mr G, lived in a tumbledown house in the countryside, with an uncontrollable puppy, an elderly cat, 3 chickens and a varying number of fish.
But our story doesn’t end here, because the woman decided that it was time to start writing again. So she set up a blog, and you can read the rest of the story as it happens.
I work from home whilst simultaneously managing the child and puppy wrangling. Which means that some days are hectic, some days are messy and the rest are chaotic.
Which is why I find the two necessities in life are coffee and cheesecake!
Most of this blog has been written late at night whilst on a caffeine induced high. If it’s gets a little weird, wired and frantic at times – well, that’s my life!
