That about.me Thingy
The Hairy Housewife
I'm married and have autism and epilepsy, which I write about a lot. I keep tarantulas because I don't like cats, and I love to read.

Sorry for the radio silence recently; I’m catching up with all the emails (several thousand!) and blogs that I possibly can – and have learned my lesson for neglecting my inbox and WordPress. Never again, aside from when I’m at … Continue reading
Sorry for my abscence recently; my muse is off drinking Sangria somewhere, but occasionally she sends me postcards. I’m not sure when she’ll be back, but I shall try to manage without her for now. I’ve been okay as far … Continue reading
Today I feel the need for something a bit lighter on my blog than the subjects of the last few days, so I’m going to write a piece on how to be Awesome at a Discworld Convention. The husband-shape and … Continue reading
