I’m Helen; writer, wife and mum to two young boys. I was raised on a smallholding in Wales, my husband, Andrew, was brought up on an Irish Dairy Farm, and now our sons are growing up on a school farm in England.
We’re original like that.
This blog is about my attempts to make our sons a teensy bit less sexist by getting out on the farm and doing the dirty ‘boy’ jobs myself.
You can read a bit more about why I set up this blog in my piece for The Daily Telegraph.
However, there’s only so much sexism a two and five year old can generate, especially when the two year old can’t yet talk. This blog will also probably spill over into more general stuff about parenting and bringing the boys up on a school farm.
You can also find me on Facebook and Twitter, as well as my own website, which tells you a little about my copywriting and feature writing work:
Here’s to dirty feminism!
