My first posting!

This feels a bit weird, deciding to write about yourself on a computer, especially if your knowledge of computers is as limited as mine - ie. about dinosaur level!

I thought I had to give it a go, seeing as I've been spending hours looking at other peoples lives on blogs it only seemed fair to add mine. No doubt you'll see a fair few typing errors along the way, bear with me, I haven't been at work for a long time so I'm a bit rusty with new technology, I think I'm probably the only person without a mobile phone on the entire planet.

So.............I'm 36 (nearly 37 - how did that happen?), I've got two lovely children of 6 and 2 and a very patient and understanding partner of 11 years, Ian, who doesn't mind spending his life surrounded by others peoples cast offs, although he draws the line at "dead people's plates"- his words not mine.

I love fabrics, tins, plates, sewing, making, drilling, cooking, dancing with my children when no-one else is looking, walking in the countryside, shopping, eating and the odd glass of wine that we all deserve at the end of another long day. I have no ambitions to be rich, famous or powerful, basically because at heart I can't be bothered, I'd rather be folding fabrics and counting buttons!

Here's to the start of what I hope will be a happy blog...............

Welcome to blogland, My name is Julia too, but everybody calls me Jools. I've loved reading your posts so far. Your kitchen looks lovely. We're in the process of doing ours and I've been having lots of fun scouring charity shops, boot fairs and ebay for bits for it!

Hi, I love your blog, I just came across it through 'cupcakes at home' I just started my blog at the beginning of last week, I was off work looking after my daughter who had caught chickpox, so I was at a loose end, and like you, after just discoving blogs in the last month, I felt inspired to start my own! So it's nice to find someone else who is relatively new. I started on typepad, but then discovered blogger was free, so I had to haul the whole lot over on tuesday, which explains the masses of posts at the beginning of this week.
