Liberty on the Lighter Side - (LoLS)

Born in the UK, reared in South Africa and now living in the Irish countryside with my husband, four kids, a few chickens and other animals, I love to write about the issues closest to my heart on my blog Liberty on the Lighter Side. With honesty and sometimes humour I discuss the ups and downs of family life, including parenting, being a woman in my late 40's, travel, arts and crafts and our favourite recipes.
