I’m the one in the spotty dress. I’m a 30-year-old first time parent (as of May 2013). I’m a former journalist, and when not on maternity leave I work in education PR. I have a husband and a dog and live in a market town in Lincolnshire. I get unreasonably excited about cheese, enjoy running (which is lucky, what with all the cheese), and have yet to reach my limit for ‘number of times I can watch Mean Girl before I get bored’. I like wine, holidays, books, and combining my love for wine, holidays and books. I’ve seen live music from Girls Aloud to Fear Factory and enjoyed it all. I’m unapologetically lefty and feminist. This blog is my take on parenting.
