Hi there! I’m from a little island called Jersey that you either:
- Think is somewhere in America
- Associate with Jersey cows, Jersey Royal potatoes and that infamous 80s detective, Jim Bergerac
- Have never heard of
It’s situated somewhere in the English Channel between England and France and is a glorious place. It’s packed full of sandy beaches, rocky cliff paths with amazing views and melt in your mouth creamy milk.
I love it.
But the occasional downside in this paradise is when we get to share the weather from the British side of the pond we’re floating in. By British weather I don’t mean the pleasant sunny watching-cricket-whilst-scoffing-strawberries kind of day, I mean the days where it’s lashing down with the vast amounts of rain that makes the countryside precisely so green and pretty. And living on top of a cliff when the wind is blowing a hoolie you certainly know about it!⛈🌬💨☔️
So on those dark stormy days we secure the doors and windows and bring out our hobbies. In my case I make things.
And despite having sworn 20 years ago (upon commencing a career in IT geekery) that in order to retain some sense of being a “proper girl” that I wouldn’t touch computers outside of work, here I am now turning to one to tell you about all the well rounded non-IT things I get up to.
Um might have just talked myself into a hole there. I’d better stop talking and just let you read the blog posts instead. Thanks for visiting me!
