I’m Sparrowgrass – thanks for visiting.
I’m in my early 30s and live in the Midlands with my husband and two cats, Nutmeg and Juniper.
Those are the cats, obviously, not the husband (he’s behind the camera letting the cats play in the clean washing).
The latest addition to my life is a horse, Drifter, who lives nearby in a livery yard.
I work in a university library. Somehow I always feel slightly defensive about that, despite not wanting to change my job for anything or anyone. Perhaps I’m apologising for living in a world where I get flexi-time and where no one’s exactly sure what our targets are. Don’t get me wrong; we’re usually understaffed and we have pressurised times the same as everyone else, but compared to corporate environments we don’t live in the real world. In my office everyone expresses themselves in their own way; while there are personality clashes and petty resentments people pretty much get on with being themselves, not forcing themselves to be a model of what a business needs.
This blog is a place for me to record my musings and the development of my approach to adult(ish) life. Of late, that has become increasingly horsey!
