About Me

28056317_10155900334787110_7186771542046760823_n40something woman fumbling her way through life.  Redundant mum, book worm, curry lover, wine drinker, 101-in-1001er, would-be rock chick, creative spirit, part Romany, slightly odd!

I’m an exported Londoner who finds herself in deepest darkest rural Oxfordshire via Harrow, Hounslow and Hampshire. I love DDP Yoga, eating out, photography, motorsports, crafty projects, reading, cinema, walks on the beach and spending time  with my family and friends.

I currently work full time for an educational consultancy and moonlight as The Proof Fairy, a magical creature better known for proofreading, blogging and book formatting than for flying.

I used to be fat ….. no harm in saying that, I was a size 20-22, weighed nearly 17 stone at my heaviest. After years of failing to diet, in April 2016 I finally got my head in the right place and lost 6 stone over the next 18 months, through regular DDP Yoga and Slimming World. I still do the yoga and the food optimising now and am comfortably maintaining my new weight. Who’d have thought I’d ever be a size 12?! I started journalling my weight loss here but lost interest so there are a few sporadic entries … must try harder.

So this is my blog, and you may enter at your own risk – but whatever you do, don’t expect any pearls of wisdom here. Instead, prepare to read a random collection of observations, thoughts and downright nonsensical drivel about the fairly mundane life of a woman frantically trying to deny she’s now in mid life. Call it a crisis …

You might also find the occasional review – and I also write about all the exciting things my 101 Things in 1001 Days challenge involves.

I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I do!

  1. re my-hermes you don’t live in the abingdon area do you?

  2. Not far off … but my issue wasn’t with the courier at my end but at the recipient’s end, which was in Ireland.
