I’m Alex – artist, avid reader, adventurer, wife and warrior. I’m currently fighting a chronic illness and learning the art of happiness.
I live in the heart of Richmond upon Thames, England with my husband William, our guinea pigs – Mr Scott Butter and Cinnamon Stick, and our two gerbils – Huckleberry and Finn. We dream of a simpler, slower and more mindful life in rural Yorkshire where we hope to obtain a big black dog, a ginger cat called Byron, a goat (brown) and two chickens, oh and another little human, too.
This is a written account of the life in our nest – our battles and victories, fears and dreams, world and political views, recipes and playlists, secrets and adventures, art and stories before bed.
