What is this blog about? My family and our corner of the world. It is for friends (including those not met) and family who take an interest in what we’re getting up to, parenting, open adoption, gardening, science, nature and the great outdoors, cooking, books, art, crafting, health care, heart stuff, diapers and Tucson, AZ.
Who am I? Human, family person, mother, daughter, sister, and friend. Optimist and worry-wort (yes, it is possible).
Where am I? I grew up in Northern England and moved to the Sonoran Desert as an adult. I’ve been in Tucson for the better part of twenty years with a brief and recent six month hiatus in Florence, Italy. I love Tucson, but do miss things about England a lot, mainly the sense of humour, excellent and affordable health care for all, and oh yeah, my family. I don’t miss constant drizzle.
What do I believe? The political is personal and that individuals can make big change happen with small actions. Equality for all.
I don’t think the following are dirty words and am quite pleased if you call me by them: Feminist, bleeding heart liberal, tree hugger, lefty, humanist and socialist.
