I started blogging during my many hours of being sat on the couch breastfeeding my second child. Too poor to fork out for Sky TV, too brain dead to pick up a book, I started to write to cope with my sojourn as a stay at home mother, cut off from my usual world of academic banter and needing something to do with my hands other than the dishes/cooking/tickling/hugging. That child is now three and I'm still unemployed/a-lady-of-leisure/stay-at-home-mum. I got caught up in the cult of Mummy blogging by mistake and abandoned my blog when I felt that had outgrown it. I didn't feel comfortable being refined to that genre and I must confess that I've only ever read one or two mummy blogs myself so I was at odds with what I was producing for a while. During the time from my very first post until now, I have grown, evolved, matured and look to the future with a new attitude. I'm now back and trying to evolve this blog into a true representation of my interests and something that might actually spark discussion instead of me boring the arse off one and all with tales of my kids.
This blog is a representation of my interests which are often diverse and often peculiar. My world is full of wonderful people. Activists, teachers, writers, musicians politicians nutters, dreamers, weirdos and kids. I hope someone might actually find it interesting. If not, then a little piece of my life and my world is preserved in cyberspace for all eternity or until Skynet takes over the world and the Terminators kill us all.
