About Me

"Oh, go on. Give the cat another goldfish!"

Though I was born in Canada, my parents come from across the Pennines in Yorkshire. When I was growing up my grandmother had a phrase, whenever she was tempted to buy something a bit extravagant she’d say "Oh, go on. Give the cat another goldfish!" When we started planning for a family, it was a phrase that came frequently to mind.

I now live half-way between Manchester & Liverpool with my husband, two cats and a slowly increasing bump. Our journey to parenthood wasn’t without its obstacles, and on Another Goldfish you can read about our struggle with infertility, the ectopic pregnancy that ruptured in 2011, and our experiences with IVF.

I have a degree in Product Design and Development, and I started writing for interior design and kitchenware blogs in 2006. After six years of highlighting fashionable, trendy and clever kitchen products, I decided to try to writing something more personal. The result is "Another Goldfish"; a place to talk about crafting, family and our attempts to live an eco-friendly life.
