Hello, I’m Rowan.
I’m a writer, cat lover and book addict. I live in Brighton with my husband and love of my life, He Who Shall Not Be Named (HWSNBN). He’s a neat-freak, I think life is too short to tidy when there are books to be read; but somehow we make it work.
After struggling with infertility, I now have two little boys. I think about motherhood and parenting a lot.
This blog is my teeny tiny boat on the vast sea of the internet. I started this blog in 2008 because I was bored at work. Over time it’s metamorphosed into part therapy/part record of the important moments in my life from my wedding, to losing my best friend, from giving up my day job, to struggling with infertility. As a Virgo I am obsessed with ways to make my life easier, better and more fulfilling. I often set myself projects and blog about the results including trying 30 hair styles in 30 days to raise money for charity, writing a life list, and trying veganuary.
My dream is to one day own a library, but holding our wedding reception in a library will have to do for now.
In the ‘real’ world, I work as a counsellor specialising in trauma. I believe that life is both brutal and beautiful – brutiful. And that there are moments of beauty and grace even in our darkest moments. Although I like writing blogs that make people laugh. I LOVE writing blogs that make people cry.
You can find out more about me by following me on instagram, pinterest, goodreads or emailing me.
