I started to write poems and stories when I was about 11, enjoying English classes I wanted to be Lois Duncan when I was older. I would spend hours in my bedroom writing stories, a lot of the time I would say ‘I’m going to write a book’ and never finish. I couldn’t believe it one day when my mum handed me a box of stuff they’d kept in the loft all that time and it contained all my work, I honestly thought it had all got chucked out when they moved house years ago.
When I started blogging back in 2011 (on another blog site) I never thought it would come to much but over the years it’s gone from a diary to a place where I can have a bit of escapism, and now I have people to share it with too.
Then in 2013 I finished one of the stories I wrote as a teenager and made it into a novella…
I have also began a new love for sewing in the past ten years, I have had my own sewing room where I can be found sometimes in there planning new projects which was usually new clothes.
Writing this blog has brought me a new type of confidence, and has got me connected with other writers, photographers, sewing enthusiasts, travellers and some hilarious procrastinators.
Then in 2016 after a round of IVF and ICSI we completed our family…he came 12 weeks early premature so he literally is our miracle. So now my blog is mainly filled with stories of William and our adventures, my thoughts and feelings as I am thrown in to motherhood as an older mum.
Having been working at the University of Southampton and the NHS I left school I am no stranger to commitment, but when we became a family of three other priorities took over so acquired a part time job in September 2019 working in a a little place called Hartley Library at the University, which I love because I love books and research.
Also who wouldn’t want to work in this beautiful building…..
