Hello!! Im Emily, and welcome to my world! I’m trying to have my cake and eat it by juggling motherhood and a career. This pretty much means Im late to everything, with a dubious stain and, more often than not, running on coffee, laughter and very little sleep.
I have three fantastic children (and one on the way) a husband who puts up with my eccentricities, a 1st class degree in Media with Creative Writing, a profound talent for bodged bakery and an unhealthy obsession with crafting my way through special occasions.
I also have a fondness for Dawson’s Creek reruns and researching the cultural impact of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (that’s my justification for owning all of the box sets).
