About Me

Hello! I’m Karen, a stay-at-home mum to one very entertaining 3 year old girl and a very hungry 3 month old boy.

There’s a lot I could tell you about myself. I could tell you how I got hospitalised with tonsillitis in the knees a few years ago, or how I once struck up a very awkward conversation  with Richard E Grant on the District Line, when I mistook him as someone from work, rather than from ‘Withnail and I’…. But I suppose I’m probably best sticking with the basics.

I’m originally from the north-east, but have moved around a bit, stopping off in Cardiff, London, Tokyo, a couple of other Japanese places, and Germany.  However, my love of corned beef pasties eventually drew me back to Durham, where I now live with my husband and our little girl and boy.

Life is hectic, and now with two children, even more hectic than I’d ever imagined it could be. That said, there’s not a day goes by that I don’t feel lucky and grateful to have Cbeebies, Kitkats and gin my two little tinkers.

Hope you enjoy reading! If you’d like to contact me about anything at all, please just drop me a line at twicemicrowavedtea@gmail.com
