I prefer the term childlike to childish, it had a more mature ring to it. To me I'm me. Determined, understanding with a little bit of a temper. I'm married and have children. I also have a brother and two sisters, I work in a school with various kids who need a little extra help, one way or another. And to all those people I imagine that I'm someone slightly different, depending on their needs. Once you read me I will become, to you, who you need me to be.

Let's Go Diem the Carpe!

Rich and I love going to gigs, nowadays it’s only a few times a year and, this past Friday, was an utterly awesome gig. We first saw The Correspondents at Womad in 2012. L had just turned 4 and T...
