Work With Me/Disclosure Policy

Work With Me Before I lived on the internet, I had several day jobs.  Most of those included writing on topics such as accessible travel, education, arts and business writing. If you would like me to write for you on any of these topics or other ones, please get in touch. I landed my favourite job when I drove into the interview and everyone in the office read my blog before I got there.  My old boss calls me, um, very persuasive.

Merry, happy and all that.   Featured image:  Photo by Erwan Hesry on Unsplash            ...

The Christmas Road-trip

On Sunday night, Neil and I clinked paper cups over burgers in Edinburgh. ‘Happy weird-ass date night,’ I said. We were doing some first-minute Christmas shopping before picking up my Mom at the airport the next morning.  I was running on nerves and chocolate after the six hour drive off the mountain.  We had an hour to shop, but I can’t shop hangry.  So, make that 40 minutes to shop. At toy stores.  And a craft store. Isla’s Christmas list opened like this:  Dear Santa, I’d like you to bring me these presents while I sleep.  I love Mummy...
