I started writing Bug, Bird and Bee in June 2014 after 5 years of blogging on my previous blog of 5 years, PLUS 2.4.
I’m a 40 plus single mum, who writes a family lifestyle blog.We live in North Wiltshire, with rail links to Swindon, Bristol, Bath and London.I don’t drive, so travelling by bus, train and the tube is second nature to us.
I have 3 children, Kip, Cat and Mouse.These are blog nicknames, obviously.
Kip is aged 14.Kip is in year 10 of secondary school.He is passionate about drama, skateboarding and playing the keyboard.
Cat is aged 11.Cat is in year 7 of secondary school.She loves reading, writing and playing the ukulele.
Mouse is aged 8. Mouse is in year 4 of primary school.She’s well known for her beaming smile, loves ladybirds, Mr.Potato Head, Captain America, LEGO and getting her monthly Toxic magazine fix.
I was a chef before having Kip with 8 years of experience of working in an industrial kitchen.I am vegan previously vegetarian, Cat is vegetarian and Kip has several allergies.These are nuts, eggs, strawberries, kiwi, shellfish, pollen and grass.
We enjoy walks to our local woods, foraging throughout the year, visiting local places of interest, London, reading and tabletop games.I’m a parent helper in Mouse’s Forest School.
At the end of 2015 I became co-founder of the
#skyblanket2016 craft project.Uniting knitters and crocheters around the world to make a blanket that represents the sky each day, over a year.This project was sponsored by Coats Crafts for some bloggers.
