I am an eclectic mix of parts

  • I am an autistic post graduate researcher exploring autistic individuals’ needs for time and space just to ‘be’
  • Over the years I have also been a health and nutrition coach, professional musician, a piano teacher, a shop manager of a violin shop, a pharmacy dispenser, and a smoking cessation adviser
  • I am a wife to a fabulous husband who lectures in education
  • I am a mother to two gorgeous teenage girls
  • I live in North Somerset in the UK

And so my somewhat sporadically updated blog reflects that with:

So, you know, have a browse and let me know your thoughts! You can also find me on twitter and instagram…

  1. I am excited to hear how after four months so many “problems” are disappearing from your life!! I also suffer from anxiety in public situations and menopause is the worst….but thanks to your blog post I feel that there is hope. I have seen some relief already and have lost 12 pounds so far. Going to take a few and read some of your recipes now. 🙂 Cheers from Canada


    • It is an exciting journey to be sure! I do hope your anxiety clears up as well, it can be crippling. Last weekend I decided to relax on the wheat and sugar front and found that jittery – somethings-gone-horribly-wrong sensation returning and a four hour stint of insomnia. Needless to say I’ve been very careful this week!
      Your recipes look fab – looking forward to trying some out!


      • You could try! The powdered sugar is a very important ingredient in French Macarons so made sure you do not omit this! I am not sure if they made a sugar free powdered sugar? Let me know how they turn out!

  3. I can’t seem to write a comment on your post (just tried on your toothpaste one). It just says it can’t complete it, even though it seems that I can on this bit. It’s happened a couple of times. Any ideas?
