As life whizzes by and I get older putting pen to paper seems a good idea to record things for posterity. Since starting a family tree I’ve realised just how little I know about my ancestors and how they lived. Our current technology makes that now oh so simple.
This blog will no doubt be a bit of a ramble – from life at home, gardening and my other hobbies, the animals, food – whatever takes my fancy really. If in years to come it is still around and the family can make use of it, all well and good.
Of course I have already had to consult with youngest daughter on how to set this up (she already has a blog). I’m quite computer savvy but every now and then something phases me so if it doesn’t seem totally professional you’ll know why!
We live a pretty ordinary existence in leafy Godalming. Husband and two girls, one already graduated and now working, the other at College. I’m fortunate to have a large garden which lets me indulge my green aspirations – growing your own, composting etc and which gives us room for the animals. Just not large enough for donkeys or goats though!! Food and cooking is a passion and also my hobbies of genealogy, woven beadwork and anything arty that I can have a bash at. Time of course is the limiting factor with all my hobbies so I tend to flit from one to the other as soon as I have finished a project.
