About Me

I'm Krista and I am mum to 3 gorgeous girls born in 1998, 2008 and 2010. 

My blog was originally a page on a personal website I had but as the technology advanced, I joined up here and began blogging proper. I originally blogged for a few years and then decided I'd had enough of the whole thing and deleted my account.  After a bit of a break, I signed up again in 2011 and have been blogging ever since.

I have been an intermittent blogger. I have spells where I produce a lot of blogs (mostly because I am happy or ranty about something) then I have a total wasteland where I don't bother much.  I have to say the latter is becoming less as I'm getting quicker at putting fingers to keyboard and realising I don't have to write 'War and Peace' every time I want to say something!

My family and I are massive RHS addicts (so clearly we are members) and frequently visit our local gardens at RHS Wisley in Surrey.

Our other big passion is Geocaching.  The children love it, it gets us out to places that we would never have found before, keeps us healthy (lots of walking) and best of all, it's free.

Trust me, I'm a Doctor!  I obtained my PhD in 2016 (thesis entitled 'Crowdsourcing for Heritage: The Changing Role of the UK Heritage Sector).  I am also a PhD tutor (occasionally), a Visiting Workshop/Seminar Tutor, an Online Course Tutor, and an administration assistant at my university (part-time for all of them), as well as an independent recruiter (when my clients need me).  Oh, and I help out at my girls' school with social media administration and testing maths.  I've also just bought myself a PlayStation 4 and have rocked through Final Fantasy XV. I like to keep busy.

In my former life I was an avid motorcyclist, more frequent PlayStation gamer (Final Fantasy being my favourite series of games), enjoyer of quality hotel holidays and drinker of champagne (I'm now tee-total).  I worked in both the semiconductor and IT industries and travelled quite a bit (mostly on business).  Most of these things are now a distant memory *grin*  Would I give up any part of being a mummy to go back to my old life?  Not on your nelly!
