emmasouthlondon is a collection of thoughts and pictures about life, my garden and interests –
in South London.
Although I work full time, my passion is nearer home.
I enjoy cooking, making things for the house and up-cycling items found in skips, from freecycle and passed on from others who no longer need them. I don’t like clutter, but I love to give a new lease of life to something that can then be enjoyed, look beautiful and be used usefully.
I’m a SENCO in a primary school – interested in people and what makes them tick, supportive of the underdog.
I have two wonderful children, who I am so proud of.
I’m a single mother, which I’m not so proud of, but sometimes things just don’t go as you planned. I
hope that one day I’ll be able now sadly realise that I will probably never be able to have meaningful conversations with the father of my children – share thinking, worries and joy about them, as the family – albeit broken – that we will always be. They have grown into strong individuals now, and I truly trust that they have learnt from what they have lived, and will make the right choices in life.
I have not eaten wheat or dairy for the last four years, and, for me it’s been wonderful in clearing up asthma and eczema. You’ll find lots of wheat and dairy free recipes here, as well as ‘normal’ ones. I record recipes that I consder to be good enough to pass on to a friend.
I love to be outside, see the sky, hear the birds, take time to watch.
This blog is a collection of thoughts, and recipes that I’ve found worth keeping – my mother wrote all her ‘keepers’ down for me in a notebook – a main aim for this blog is to be that ‘notebook’ for my girls!
Thank you for visiting – I appreciate all feedback, so please do leave a note of your thoughts – looking forward to visiting your blogs too!
