I’m an amateur historian. I’ve loved history ever since I was a little girl and my Gran used show me old photos. Since then I’ve studied the Victorian period and spent 15 years looking up my family tree. I love Roman-British history, the Medieval and Georgian periods. Occasionally I drift into Egyptology. I’ve now progressed to this blog, in which I will be researching the history of the housewife. No mean feat, but it will be the discovery of the lives of some of the most unwritten, but important women, in history – Mrs Beeton look out.
I no longer work as I have been diagnosed with ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia. I talk about this on my personal blog Sleeping on the Edge of Sleep.
My hobbies include writing (I’m a published poet) and photography (which I’m learning more about). I’m currently working on my cooking skills, which needs a lot of work, and knitting.
