I'm Jen. I'm 41 years old. I am originally from Glasgow, Scotland but I now live in Leeds, England. I married a Yorkshireman and we've been together for 19 years. We have a son who is 11 and also a big fat cat called Maisie who is 15 years old.
I am a Market Gardener 3 days a week and have been doing that job for 6 years now. But previously I used to work in bookselling and arts management.
I love interiors, especially modern rustic style mixed with vintage pieces. I'm passionate about handmade and independent sellers, so I like to write about them too. I also love to showcase places of interest in Yorkshire, from art galleries, cafes, shops, parks and museums. We love to camp all over the UK and plan to do lots more this year, weather permitting obviously!
I have been vegetarian for 25 years and I don't discuss my reasons why. I'm happy for other people to eat meat and fish, that's up to them - it's totally not my business! But I do like to show what vegetarian food we've been eating recently as that's just part of our daily family life. Oh and I believe that a slice of cake for breakfast is a good thing.
Thanks so much for reading!
**Any product that I feature on the blog is given a link simply because I like it and have bought it for myself or my home and I want to share it with my readers (or it's on my wishlist!). I'm passionate about supporting small independent businesses, both online and locally so I will link to their sites also. These are not paid for posts but are featured because I love shopping with them. I do like to share my favourite independent shops, cafes or tourist attractions as they are places I genuinely love. All images and words used are my own and I can assure readers that my all reviews are honest. **
