I was really pleased when Heather from Notes From Lapland started this linky - even though clearly maths isn't her strong point because there were 5 bloggers in my van on the way to Laura's and I'm pretty sure she knows all of them (not Biblically obviously....probably). I however did pretty much reach my limit of known Bloggers last weekend, so it really would be great to get to know a few more before we get there.
This is me - I'm Jenny and I'm not usually covered in jelly, but this was taken at my Red Nose Day Jelly Bath. I am however usually harrassed, greying, overweight, not very tall and older than your average blogger, (in fact there are several blogs where I'm old enough to be the parent of the author) but I know I won't be the oldest person there! Woohoo!
I've 5 children and 2 step-children (5 of whom live with us full time and the other 2 bob in and out) - they're 3,4,13,13,15,15 and 19 and I am surrounded by teenage angst and pre-school tantrums everyday.
I'm from Derby and moved up here 6 years ago because it was where my partner lived, he's originally from Mull and came here via Glasgow, so our children are destined to have accents that don't match anyone else's forever.
I've been using the internet since before electricity was invented and I've had a couple of other blogs over the years, but nothing very public. I was previously well known in a few Internet areas under the guise of missusjen (and maybe a couple of other names), but 2 other people turned up using that name a few years ago so feel free to go and send them loads of messages assuming it's me (actually it will usually be me, but this way I get to choose whether or not to reply).
I started The Brick Castle because I was reviewing toys and had nowhere to store my reviews, and a sleeping blog where I'd ranted and moaned the everyday wasn't really an appropriate place, so I started over. I'm glad I did.
See you there....
