Real Life

I live in Edinburgh. I have a husband and two small(ish) sons.

In my murky and chequered past I have been:

  • a waitress (I am very bad at it)
  • an EFL teacher (I had my moments)
  • a(n) historian (I have a PhD in Soviet history. Questions about the intricacies of the relationship between the Russian Orthodox Church and the Soviet state 1941-48? I’m your woman! Or I would have been, a few years ago)
  • a specialist in human-computer interaction (which I occasionally still am).
    evil cake

    But I don’t like this one. This cake is evil.


    I like cake. Also coffee, but especially cake.
