I’m sure you have far better and more interesting things to do than read about a middle aged housewife in the North East of England. But since you have taken the trouble to click on the link I owe you an explanation.
I am Gillie, I am married to an exceptionally patient, although rather untidy and chaotic, husband (The Boss) and have three gorgeous daughters aged 22 and 20 (yes, they are twins, yes they are identical, no I don’t confuse them, yes they have very different personalities, and no they don’t ever wake up in the morning and wonder if they are the other twin – they have been asked that…!) They are respectively, Medic 1, the Rock Geek and Medic 2.
We live in a wonderful old rambling house a few miles out of the village with 1 dog (Poppy the Jack Russell), 3 cats and various chickens. During the summer we battle with canine and feline fleas and scratch bites on our ankles and during winter we battle to keep the house warm and hope that the car can make it down the lane. Life is good 🙂
I believe passionately in local food, sustainability, permaculture and making stuff. I am doing well on points one to three. This blog is about my journey in trying to achieve point four.
