Hello, I’m Kathy – or Kat, to those who know me longest. I’m a longtime reader, writer, poet (okay – a writer of silly poems, let’s be honest here), crafting-wanna-be who developed a thing for cooking because I love eating. Fortunately my parents gave me skinny genes (“Can’t fatten a thoroughbred” my Dad often joked) which allowed me to pretty much eat ANYTHING. That worked really well for me until recent times and now I realise that moderation, exercise and elastic-waisted jeans need to become my new best friends. I have a husband who hoards, two teenagers yet to embrace their differences, furred and feathered pets, the tiniest kitchen in Australia, no dishwasher, a pile of half-read novels next to the bed and notebooks filled with lists. I love a list! My goals are more writing, more travel, more friends, more wine. Seems fair.
