I’m a fat lady. A short, old, ugly, fat lady.

I lived a busy international scientific life until my retirement a few years ago. Now I am busier than I ever was in my former career, and (almost) every day is an utter delight.

I sew, I knit, I hand-spin with a drop spindle, I dye, I garden, I build bespoke corsets, I have stalls at craft events and charity fundraisers, I travel around to buy fabric and fleece – and sometimes I sit at home and buy it on the internet instead.

I follow blogs intermittently, contribute to forums on-and-off and stand up against ageism, sizeism and appearanceism.
