Graduated from the University of Queensland, December 2012, Mother of two, Nanna of one, Master of none.Current: Anxiously awaiting results of Honours thesis in English Literature: “Prescribing the Gothic: Maddening and Dissecting Doctors in Nineteenth-Century Sensation Fiction” submitted on 21st October 2013, and wondering if academic career is over………..??!
Reet Yorkshire lass with a mighty chip of granite on my shoulder; Battle Axe and part-time Ninja.
…. and I also ran a marathon in 2011 (42.2km) to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation Australia, and Macmillan Nurses in the UK…….just because I am a Nanna doesn’t mean I have to just sit at home knitting you know.
I run so I can also eat as much cake as I want, and you can read more about how I ran this far and the infamous ‘controlled shuffle’ here
And…..an early post that explains why, in 2005, aged 36, I emigrated from Hull, East Yorkshire, England to Brisbane, Queensland, Australia……..Because The Beaches Are Better!!
