This website was invented many years ago, when the author kept coming across interesting things in pockets whilst doing laundry. Like small, terrified reptiles. Blogging about raising children in the rainforest, moving them to the UK and watching them leave home one by one to have their own adventures has gradually been replaced by a return to grownup life for their mother, Nan Sheppard, who is an anthropologist, writer and public international law consultant.
I know, spring is taking AGES to come. But take heart! My birthday is on Friday (40!!!) and I've placed an order for a gorgeous, sunny weekend to share with all my peeps. If the sunny gorgeousness arrives on time, you will find me hiking on the clifftops and drinking hot chocolate somewhere. If it rains, well, I've got the same plan but with hats and gloves!
