About Julie 1



It’s an old picture, but I like it.

I’m a Mum, obviously! I pretend to be good at gardening, I like sports (but only spectator ones), love entering competitions, and would probably have coffee on IV drip if I didn’t have this needle phobia. I am in my late Thirties, and so is my partner, our Boys  are D born in 2002 and J born 2008.
I’m ambidextrous, equally cack-handed with either hand, but I write left handed as I want to be different. I’m 6ft tall now, although I used to be taller.
I like tree-huggy-hippy-stuff apparently as I recycle all I can and grow plants in my garden. If I could afford it I’d like an electric car, and solar panels and energy gizmos all over the place. I often have silly coloured hair, I’m not planning on growing up any time soon. I am terrified of heights but have skydived for charity 3 times.
I have pets, I love animals and people say I should own a zoo. Currently our pets are 2 saluki dogs, a bunny rabbit and 2 guinea pigs.
I have depression with DDNOS and sometimes use my blog to vent my frustrations.  I have been out of work since October 2012 due to Mental Health, but am coping much better since being out of the 9-5 rat race. I have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue which makes life a bit harder now.
I waffle and chat on the Internet, occasionally I might write something intelligent by accident, until then please be patient. 🙂
I wish I'd been born an Aussie
I am very happy to review items on my blog if it’s something I feel is relevant to our family. Please contact me on twitter mentioning you’ve seen my blog or email me by using the links at the top of the blog.

    Hi Julie, met you at RHS Malvern we chatted at the Flowers from the Farm stall I organised. You suggested we send you a bouquet of beautiful British flowers and you might blog/tweet about them – where would you like me to deliver them to – I have lots of beautiful flowers coming out at the moment as a result of the lovely sunny weather at weekend so would love to share them with you
