This is me……funny, fiercely loyal, open, honest, witty, arty, creative, thoughtful, sensitive, intelligent. I love deep conversations and laughing so much my tummy hurts. I love being outdoors, I love trees. I love the sea. I need calm. I need peace. I need some structure, but also hate it at the same time. Oh and I support AVFC. It can be torture, but I’m a Villan through and through. And happily introducing my two kids to the emotional cipro no prescription rollercoaster of following the claret and blue.

The best thing I’ve done in this life is to have two fantastic children. Everyday they make me happy, proud, exhausted…you name it. They are the reason I’m still here. There are lots of other things you can read about me on this blog but I wanted you to see a little more of me. At least the parts I’m prepared to share here.

    Thank you for these phrases: “young enough to have the time but not old enough to have self belief” and “I stopped writing and spent many years afterwards trying to find a โ€˜proper jobโ€™ and being miserable.” How they resonate …

      I know it’s a cliche, but cliche’s exist for a reason-they’re true. I’ve learned that it’s never too late to try. Good luck trying too.

    Nice blog! I’m looking forward to getting to know you better. Thanks for visiting my parenting blog and leaving a sweet comment on my About page. When your children’s books get published, and if you want or are able to, then feel free to send them my way. I’d be happy to review them. My blog readership is ever growing and I link up with Renee’s Kid Lit hop too, so more people see them. By the way, you wrote exiting instead of exciting (you might want to fix that). I had a typo too on a page from my 1camera1mom that I only noticed yesterday and fixed. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you like nature, then visit http://1camera1mom.blogspot.com

      Thank you and thanks for telling me about the typo-I read these things through regularly and yet still they pass me by….!

    Hello – good blog site, I was wondering if you would be interested in reviewing my new children’s book – Devonshire with a Hint of Albanian?

    Here is a short preview: http://issuu.com/mattrobertewens/docs/preview_copy

    It is available on Amazon – but I can provide the full book in the above preview mode privately if you’re interested.

    Many thanks

      Hi Matt,
      It looks really interesting and I’d be happy to review it. I’m afraid it wouldn’t be for a few weeks though. If that’s OK with you, let me know via email (address on my About Page.)
