I’m Jen and this blog is about my life. If, at any point, I figure out what my life is about, I promise I will let you know. At the moment it is full of all manner of disparate elements which refuse to be dragged into any semblance of a cohesive whole.
I am a mother with two small boys born in 2005 and 2008. I am no longer with their father but we are working together to rebuild a friendly relationship. I have a boyfriend about whom I am crazy, who also has two small boys, born 2008 and 2009 so our house is frequently filled with the thunder of tiny feet; the buzz of Hexbugs and the screams of barefoot parents standing on Lego.
I am a full time accountant, juggling work; childcare; housework (when I feel I can’t avoid it any longer) and a variety of different hobbies.
I love riding my bike; reading books; knitting and crochet; assembling flat-packed furniture; watching CSI and Star Trek; drawing and colouring; playing board games and computer games; baking and decorating cakes; writing; birthdays; Christmas and surprises.
