I’m Kate, a lifestyle blogger in South Oxfordshire, who also spends lots of time in Surrey and Dorset. I’m a working mum trying to make the best use of time so I can make a family home and have time to develop my own interests.
I’ve recently had a career change from being an environmental consultant to working as a web officer. I live in an old care home, complete with lift, we are renovating in to our family home. I write about my key interests;
- personal growth
- house renovation
- journal writing
- my children may make an appearance now and again.
You can read more about me in these posts:
- Family home – 1st anniversary (dones and not dones)
- 7 years blogging, 17 years online
- 15 ideas for old diaries and journals
The rest of the family:
My husband ED is a chartered mechanical engineer and enjoys sailing, Land Rovers (although hasn’t had one for years), gaming miniatures, DIY and occasional triathlons.
Obviously due to my project manager planning skills, both children arrived within 6 hours of their due dates, however poor planning means their birthdays are on consecutive days in November!
B was born in 2008 and despite our best efforts is a stereotypical girl who loves princesses and sparkle, although doesn’t mind digging in the garden either. She does swimming, ballet, tap and gymnastic lessons and enjoys reading, colouring, dancing, cooking. She recently asked for a horse so she can ride to school!
M was born in 2011 and is a typical boy who loves tractors and trains, but also enjoys music, dancing, tools and cooking. He does swimming, gymnastics, ballet and football lessons.
Like me, they both love computers and gadgets!
