Introducing the wild tribe (and a superhero)

Introducing the wild tribe (and a superhero)

Let me introduce the tribe

About the tribe? Well, I’m on the wrong side of 40 with 3 crazy kids and a husband. We live in rural Nottinghamshire with regular trips to the big smoke to fuel my need to see more than five people in a bar at once and to watch the big world  as opposed to the occasional tractor, go by.

I have an unnerving inability to say no to anything which means I’m always three times busier than I have physical and mental energy for and regularly meet myself coming the other way! I run a house, 3 kids, two businesses, am a governor at our tiny rural primary school and can wield a drill as well as the next woman!

I love being a mama, cooking and drinking good wine (or whatever is on the best offer). We try, and regularly fail, to eat healthily and to leave a gentle footprint upon the earth.

My fantastic kids are 5 (and three quarters don’t you know), 9, and 11-going-on-21 so we are currently battling 11 year old girl hormones, the a relentless and overwhelming energy of a crazy 9 year old boy and a 5 year old daughter who is trying to outclass them both at every turn. The little superhero is a super cool little dude too but I can’t take credit for him – he belongs to a fab friend of mine!) My kids are crazy, crackers, fascinating and infuriating. They are the reason I get out of bed in the morning and the reason I pass out in a heap on the sofa at night.
