Welcome!

This blog was born in January 2015, in the middle of a career crisis. I was stuck and writing helped me work through things.

You’ll read about my almost-mid-life epiphanies (not really, they’re more over-caffeinated musings), some health issues, anxiety and parenting a teen. I’m also on Twitter and Instagram

These are a few of my favourite things: books, especially YA fiction and HEAs, clever design, postcards, comfort food, coffee, mulled drinks, boots, the beach, the mountains, and chunky knit anything. I’m a good source of totally useless trivia (pub quiz, anyone?) and I love crosswords. My long-suffering Husband, teen daughter (DD) and I are all third-culture kids, and after a long stint in London, Madrid is home for now.

Thanks for stopping by!
