My Story

Chocolate shapes and patterns

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.

Hi there

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 andΒ 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!

  1. I think I should let you know that I headed over to your blog because of the comment you wrote on the “iCan’t take it anymore” post about Mac technology. Your response was so level-headed and intelligent, that I wanted to see what else you had to say. I’m glad I stopped by, because I like what I found. πŸ™‚
    I’ll be looking forward to reading more of your posts!

    • Hey Maddie. Cute, but a total delinquent with a penchant for fox poo. She has a stockpile somewhere in the garden – this week has been a week of many baths!
      Ooh, a coffee quiz. One of my favourite drinks. I will go take a peek.

    • *Shock* Oh my! I don’t even know where to start with that confession – that’s not crazy, it’s deprivation. I hope you’ve made up for it since! πŸ˜‰

      As for the beer part, all the best stories flow better with a pint or two.

  3. I found your ‘like’ button πŸ˜€

    I’m not great at navigating websites and even though I wasn’t a big fan of the ‘like’ button in the beginning, I feel a little nervous now if I can’t find it.

    I also live in a tumbledown house in the countryside (that I’m trying to make less tumbledown), with 4 uncontrollable puppies and 2 elderly cats (no fish – yet) πŸ˜‰

    • I do like the ‘like’ button – it’s a quick and easy way to comment if you don’t want to actually write something. I like getting ‘likes’ so I know people visited and didn’t leave in disgust.

      Forget the fish – they are a pain. What about chickens? You can have mine! 4 puppies? Show us more. I love your house – we can swap if you want.

Speak up and tell me what you think!
