Welcome, these pages share words and poems about family life. These words came tumbling out – after not much sleep.

Being a parent, especially a new parent, can be tough, frustrating and exhausting at times. But my words aim to remind of the wonder of it. The wonder of you and them. And the love that makes it possible.

They record the high points of a serene sleeping baby, a happy active toddler, coffee with friends as well as the not so glamorous worn out moments – when even staring into space seems like hard work. They record the changing challenges and relationships, from expecting through to growing children.

I love to write, especially commissions. Do contact me for a poem for a special day, such as a naming ceremony or for an occasion, such as the first night home, or receiving of news. Gifting writing is a great way of expressing what can sometimes not be said aloud.
