My mum always claimed that when she lived in America for a year, my dad wrote to her every day and, in one of his letters, proposed. My dad denied this. But when she got home they got married anyway. In 1966 they emigrated to Canada. They'd wanted to go to New Zealand, but it was full.

I was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, which, by all accounts, is very cold. And also hot. But when I was four months old, my parents moved back to the UK.

When I was 18 I moved to London and worked in the music industry (eventually). A few years later I moved back up north. Now I live in Lancashire (which is lovely, particularly when it's not raining... which is about two weeks a year) with my two sons and two guinea pigs. All four are cute and hairy.

Happy Home Ed

happy-home-edI’ve self-published an ebook about our home ed adventure:


Not sure home education is right for you? Nor was Keri s Stainton…


Keris Stainton had never really considered home education. It just seemed too radical. Eccentric. Different. Weird.


But it’s estimated that over 50,000 children are home educated in the UK and this figure is rising by 65% per year – they can’t all be weirdos, can they?

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”

Charles M. Schulz

“When it's over, I want to say: all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.

When it is over, I don't want to wonder
if I have made of my life something particular, and real.
I don't want to find myself sighing and frightened,
or full of argument.

I don't want to end up simply having visited this world.”
Mary Oliver

Keris Oh well then that makes sense :)

I don't entirely get it either and I've been on here for years. I mainly use it to keep a record of what I've read and to be nosy around other people's bookshelves. ;)

Keris You're welcome! And thanks for your interest in my book. I threw my diaries away when I left home. But first I scribbled over them and glued the pages together. Paranoid, much? ;)
