Hello and welcome to my blog. I’m Kate and I’ve been blogging since 2005 but since I became a teacher, I have had to do some extensive online housekeeping so this is my latest new home.
I enjoy films and television. I like making things. I love reading and I am passionate about my teaching subject, English. I write when I can and have only just recently given myself permission to think about writing regularly. I am a wife, and a mother to two beautiful kiddos. You will see a bit of all these things here along with anything else that strikes.
This latest incarnation of my blog marks a shift in gears. I have struggled to find a rhythm writing here and so I am trying something different. Gone is ‘Mama Kate’ and now I will be focusing in those simple (and sometime not so simple) pleasures and glories that make this life so wonderful. My new blog title was inspired by an extract from Barbara Kinsolver’s High Tide in Tucson which was part of a weekly journalling prompt by Erin Loechner. It struck me so hard and felt so true.
