Who am I again?

The other day I volunteered to guest post at the lovely Bodfortea's place whilst she is away doing Something More Interesting.

I wrote the blog post.  I sent the blog post.  She emailed me back saying she liked it (phew!) and did I want to put an introduction or a photo.  Or both.

It just made me think - who am I now?

For the last 2 and a half years, I have been a widow.
For the last 8 years I have been the AC's mother.
I have been J's other half for 21 months.
For 14 years I have been a teacher.
I have been quilting and knitting for 10 years.
I have been writing since I was a smalley.
I have been cooking and baking and loving for ever!

I don't want to be just any one of those things.  I am all of them.

So what do I write in an introduction?

Sarah lives and teaches in Norfolk with her son, (the AC) her other half, (J) 7 snakes and 2 cats.  Her life has been complicated, ranging from fabulously contented to utterly miserable at times, but the death of her fiancé, Rich, in July 2009, gave her a bucket of perspective, and she looks at life a little differently now, because itwillallbefine (the other options are stupid!)

How does that grab you?
