About me

Hello!  Pleased to meet you, I’m Mary and welcome to my little corner of the World Wide Web and the about me page!

I live in Dublin with my husband Mark and I work full-time in an office. My mother was a pastry chef who showed me how to make pastry when I was 8, my first baking experience, I was thrilled and it was so exotic….jam tarts. I’m Sagittarius and I like freedom, travel, philosophy and being outdoors. I am impatient and when I put my mind to something I want it done now. I believe I have a great sense of humour and enjoy life and fun. I have an intense curiousity and need to be in touch with the world to experience as much as possible.

I graduated with an Honours Degree from University College Dublin in Sociology and History, which I have never used. I worked in a bakery part-time through my teens and learned a lot. I was a Legal Secretary for 5 years, 3 of them when I lived in London, I have been a dental assistant, a shop assistant for a Department store, a computer programmer and I now work in an office. I cook, bake, sew, crochet, drink wine, I love cheese and eat a lot! I have an interest in history, books, true crime, travelling, lots of travelling and eating out.

I have always enjoyed making things, upcycling furniture, cooking and started this blog as a hobby to share my stories on life and the things I do. I hope you may get inspired to try some of them out.
