I’m Kimberley and I’m on a mission to make my life a little less ordinary and not take it all too seriously.
I love to make people laugh. Melbourne Mum is my personal blog in words and pictures—an offbeat place that reeks of geekery and the theatrical comedy that is parenting.
I am a mum to two spirited firecrackers, writer of dark speculative/dystopian fiction and shutterbug. A pop and geek culture lover who’s not above a spot of Sherlock, Strike Back and The Walking Dead fangirldom. Word nerd who prefers Balderdash to Chess. Medical science and horror movie fiend.
I’m making a major career change from corporate human resources and most recently, freelance writing and editing, to return to uni in 2015 to study nursing/paramedicine.
I don’t “craft“. This seems to be a bit of an anathema, to be a mum and non-crafty, but I have all the patience of a maniacal gnat on steroids when it comes to craft. I get my creative on in the form of writing dark fiction, photography, gardening and admiring Benedict Cumberbatch’s cheekbones.
