About me

I am Welsh. Very. This means that I sound like Nessa from ‘Gavin and Stacey’. It also means that I don’t do faffing. In fact my  husband calls me the ‘No-Faffmeister’.

Hubby is my rock, partner in crime, soulmate and best friend. He also happens to have NF2 (Neurofibromatosis type 2), a rare genetic condition that causes tumours to grow on nerve endings.

I love to write about all sorts, but mostly about our travel adventures with a satnav that has a mind of her own – Dervla;  the more interesting  life experiences; and things that really matter to me –  feminism, disabilities and disablism, equality (for all), discrimination, sexual and domestic violence.

I am an accredited Independent Sexual Violence Adviser (ISVA), and a part-time student at London Met Uni working my way slowly but surely towards the MA Women and Child Abuse. You can find my CV here.

    Hi Hayley, How’s your world? I hope your all is looking good and that life is treating you well.
    Things here are much the same, with motorsport helping to keep my sanity. At the end of June I marshalled at the Formula E event at Battersea Park, which produced some great racing and very close action on a very tight circuit. The ‘lack of noise’ from the electric engines did not detract from the racing at all and made marshalling at the first chicane a pleasure!
    I still find work constantly interrupts my social life, but at least the network here is good. Anyway, duty calls, cheers for now.
    Keith xx
