My name is Ann and I have lived in five cities in as many years. I started this blog while living in Auckland - after five years of raising boys it helped me start to remember just how much I like to write.
I am a mother and a wife and someone who never really thought that might be the first thing to write about myself. I am also a journalist but at the moment (and probably for ever more) the wife and mother are winning.
In my role as wife I have spent the last five years or so on the move. From London back home to Australia, first to Melbourne, then Sydney, across the ditch to New Zealand and now back to Melbourne.
I have two boys who are seven and three and blond and never sit still for long. They like balls, books, beaches, racing cars, sugar, cartoons and try as I might to stop them - guns. The guns are made out of sticks, hands or lego, I still don't buy them.
I like books, sunshine, red wine, design, beaches, politics, chocolate, cooking, bad television and chocolate. Oh have I mentioned chocolate twice?
