About Me / Contact

A little bio: I'm 45 (I know, WELL old) and I live in Cardiff. I am Welsh (mostly) but lived in London for a bit as a kid. I went to a posh girls school when we were back in Wales but didn’t really fit in; I went to a cruddy uni in Swansea and got a good degree in Art; moved back to London for a bit, worked in some galleries, moved back to Cardiff, flailed around trying to get some type of arty job for a few years, eventually ended up working in the Finance dept for a Welsh Speaking Church which was ironic given I am an English speaking, maths-illiterate atheist. Still, the job has allowed me great flexibility in my life. I’ve travelled for a couple of months in South East Asia and lived in Melbourne, Australia for a year.

When I got back from Oz I met my husband and resumed working for the Church. Before long, I was married with 2 kids: a boy, 11 and a girl, 7, and 3 cats: Bertie, Spider and Muffin. Yeah I know, the cats names' are awful. I have no defence.  

Why I starting blogging: I started this blog in 2012 as a diet bore to help me lose weight. I changed direction of it to become more "parenty" when I was up the duff with my daughter but it's become more focused on Feminism and lefty "issues" as the kids have got older. 

What this about blog is NOW: I write about lots of things here.... being a parent, being a (cishet) woman (hence the feminism theme), being aware of privilege, having mental health challenges (mainly anxiety), kids=hardwork, how I like wine and plenty of other things. I moan a lot. I'm quite childish (you may have noticed) and I overshare BIG TIME. 

Here are some links to posts where I talk about me some more....
