Sand and Other Things I've Found in Pockets

When I started this blog in 2007, it was full of things I found in my sons' pockets, pre-facebook escapades and book reviews. This blog followed us from the rainforests of Trinidad to to beaches of Bournemouth. Not much changed about us, but the things we found in pockets did, from interesting beetles and snakeskins to conkers and bus tickets. Now, those boys do their own laundry, but my pockets are often full of sand and other beachy finds.

Like life, this blog is evolving. I'm better qualified than I was a decade ago, older and wiser you might say, but I'm doing the same stuff: writing, educating, trying to make the world a little bit better. But getting sand and other interesting things in my pockets will always be a thing. I don't see any point in acting like a grownup all the time!
