About Me

All About Me and my Rose Tinted World

Hi!  I’m Jo, and it’s all about me! Well, and what my family (my OH, 6 year old and two cats) and I get up to.

Picture of Jo, it's all about me!I’ve certainly done a lot with my life so far and have a whole boat load of experiences. I set up this blog to tell you all about them, hoping that I might help you not make the same mistakes. Or maybe point you in the right direction.

But I’ve also had an amazing amount of success in my home, work and personal life. For work, I have been a dentist for 22 years. I am currently following my passion for sewing. And I am a singer. I have sung all over the world, at the Albert Hall, on cruise ships, at Disney and at the Palladium as a backing singer for Jane McDonald! Now, I’m back in my home town of Leeds, Yorkshire.

The most important job in my life started almost 4 years ago, when I became a mother at 44 to my beautiful daughter. She has shaped me in more ways than I thought possible. And she is the reason I decided I needed to set up a blog about my life, experiences and thoughts. See, it’s not all about me! 

A Simpler Life

After having a child I realised that I had built up so much clutter in my life, and so I decided to live a bit more simply.

My life has become more about zero waste and leaving this planet for our children. After years of collecting things, I am starting to declutter and reuse/upcycle instead of just throwing away. And I would love to bring all my hints and tips to these pages to share with you.

I hope that you enjoy reading.
