That’s me! I’m an ordinary person, though certainly a little nuts, who is relishing life in the countryside. I wanted to live in the country since I was a little girl, and always felt like a country girl at heart trapped in a town girl’s world. No more! I get much joy out of living my simple, creative life. I have too many interests and skills for my own good and try to do way too many projects at the same time. I am a serial learner. I also like to help other people learn. At the moment I am a stay-at-home mum to the The Little Fulla. My favourite thing to do is gardening or any sort of work outside, but writing probably comes in second. While I like having little adventures, my favourite place to be is at home with The Husband and The Little Fulla.
The Husband works in the Telecommunications industry and was previously a chef. That means he makes nice food for us as well as being extremely helpful with technology and other manly stuff around the house. He is the best cook in the house. Sometimes, he just needs a little bit of convincing to partake in my garden adventures and schemes, but he likes the part where food comes out at the other end. A serial nut pilferer. He is most happy in front of the computer. He sleeptalks semi-regularly and occasionally sleepwalks, which is both funny and insanity-inducing.
The Little Fulla
The Little Fulla is our small human child. He is the most precious thing we have. He is a fidget and has been since before he was born. It’s no wonder, with a fidget father and a serial multi-tasking mother. He is 2 1/2 now. He likes to help with almost everything, otherwise he will find his own tasks to do, which inevitably involve eating produce, ‘fixing’ things or digging somewhere he’s not supposed to. While he requires a lot of time and energy, he is adorable and funny and all-in-all a splendid wee chap.
Nala is our only fur child at the moment, although I would like another… She is beloved but a little nuts. She likes to talk to us, likes to sleep long hours in or near the house, watches and catches all sorts of critters in the garden and gets nutty in the evenings if the fire isn’t on, if she’s not getting enough attention, if she’s hungry or just because she can. She likes playing with twisty ties, hair ties and like items, and getting sifty on any paper that is left on the floor. When she goes into her nutty state we call her Nutkin. She is 11 years old now, and her nuttiness is mellowing.
The feather children have a page to themselves in the menu up the top. Because they really do like having things all to themselves.
