I’m an Aussie who fell in love with a man with a kilt and a gorgeous accent (who wouldn’t?!) and moved to sunny (hmmmm?!) Scotland. I’m now wife to my Scottish techy-and-slightly-geeky computer dude, mum to two amazing little girls of 7 and 3, godmother to a handsome wee gentleman, mum to a fur baby called Hamish, best friend to a clever-cloggs psychology academic, daughter of a nurse and an engineer, sister/sister-in-law to four brothers and four sisters and aunty to three beautiful nieces and a nephew.
My primary job title is Mum. But I’m also an aromatherapist, kinesiologist, reiki practitioner, photographer, IT consultant, singer, musician, crochet-fanatic, sewing creative, cook and gardener (though not all at once!).
I’m terrible at mathematics, running (in fact, most sports), finishing books and going to bed at a reasonable hour.
I’m wonderful at listening, laughing, helping others, organisation, thinking outside the box and being a mum.
I thought I had it all pretty much figured out until December 2014 when after years of issues with my health, I was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome.
So while I take time ‘out’ to come to terms with my diagnosis, rehabilitate my body and generally figure out what life’s next step will be – I have found solace and enjoyment in creating… In crafting, designing and working to produce beautiful items for wearing or decoration.
This site has been setup primarily as a blog, a place where I can share my creations, and thoughts on living with an invisible illness. From time to time I may offer my items for sale, and (health willing) I may take commissions for costumes and various bits of craft. Beyond that… We’ll just have to see what happens!
I hope you enjoy my site and if you have any feedback please don’t hesitate to contact me.
