That growing cohort in the world. I know people have varying views on what constitutes an appropriate age for parenthood. I can say that I am younger than when my mother and father had me! And more importantly the timing of motherhood feels absolutely right.

Also nothing unusual! According to the very recently released census data I fall into the third largest population group in Australia. One of almost half a million, one in a bit under 240,000 by gender.

Well I must have been doing something if it took me to be more than 40 years of age before the arrival of a child! I stayed at university for what some people describe as forever. And then about 10 years later went back again, albeit in a different area.
So that gives you a brief snapshot of who I am. And while I was intending a post a day, that may be slightly ambitious right now, but it is still the aim. I’ll temporarily let myself go with one every other day. And this post may be considered a slight cheat, as I can use some of it for the about me page. But that is efficient isn’t it? Maximising the use of your time and effort.
