About Me

Hi, this is Joanna here. I love a list, so here goes!
  • Yorkshire lass, living down south since 2009
  • Currently residing in north Oxfordshire
  • Only girl in a family of 4 kids
  • Was a Noble, been a Waton since 2012
  • Firstly a cat mum to Jasper in 2010, joined by human siblings Charlotte in 2014, and Benjamin in 2016
  • Former Trusts and Foundations Fundraiser, current full time mum
  • Amateur blogger, expert pyjama wearer, and coffee drinker
  • Stationery obsessive who buys notebooks, and then saves them for “best”

I write family activity reviews and travel reports on an ad-hoc basis - when we do something of interest I write about it. If we've not done anything, well, there probably won't be a post!

The second Friday of the month I post something related to children’s books under the hashtag #Jobookchat

The last Friday of the month I join in with CoffeeWorkSleepRepeat's #littleloves posts.

If there’s anything in particular you’d be interested in hearing more about let me know.

If you want to find anything in particular, use the search bar (highlighted on the image below). If you'd like to share any of my posts, use the funny little triangle icon (again, highlighted on the image below) . Can't find what you want? Just give me a shout!


Both the search bar and "share" button are circled in red

I'm home alone with the kiddiwinks a lot of the time so love the opportunity to converse with other adults, even if it's only in a virtual capacity. You can find me at any of the places below. And please do leave comments on my posts - I read them all and respond to as many as I can.
