A New Name

Austin will be three weeks old tomorrow so I thought it was high time I introduced him. This, however, gave me a dilemma. I had written all Evelina’s updates on Raising Evelina but I have struggled to rename that blog to accommodate her little brother. I have also been very slow to update that blog at all lately so I decided I would combine all my blogging and rename my Mulberry Wall blog reflect this change in focus.

I will still be blogging about all those things that interest me here but I will also be posting all the children updates here too under the Mama category. I have also renamed most of my other social media to tie in with the blog.


A New Start

Welcome to my new blog! I’m Kate and I’ve been blogging since 2005 but as I have just started on a teacher training course, I have had to do some extensive online housekeeping.  As a result, this is my new web-based home.

The blog name comes from the feature wall in our bedroom. The colour of it convinced me to fall in love with the house despite only viewing the house for 15 minutes. It also might have had something to do with the fact that I was pretty pregnant at the time. Regardless, it is my favourite colour and our bedroom wall brings me serenity at the end of a long, hectic day.

I love sewing and craft. I strive to live a simple, intentional life. I love reading and I am passionate about my teaching subject, English and Drama. You will see a bit of all these things here along with anything else that strikes.
