Having put my PhD on hold I am looking for something different. At the same time, I am recovering from a period of illness, and taking the opportunity to spend a little more time with my son, and focus on family life. We have just moved into a new home in a village we have lived in for less than a year; a bungalow in a quiet cul-de-sac, with a sweet garden and friendly neighbours. You can expect to see a lot of nesting on here I think! I love to craft, especially to knit. As a family we try to live a socially and ecologically just life, and practice gentle parenting. I'm sure we fall short, but these are our aspirations.
