Why is this blog called “Tales from PipneyJane’s Kitchen”? Because I’m a foodie, a damn good cook and because most of it will be written at my kitchen table. To me, the kitchen really is the heart of the home. Our current kitchen is 12 ft by 10 ft (or thereabouts) and in desperate need of renovation, but it’s the focal point of most of the pottering about I do at home. I get some of my best ideas for writing or creating whilst I’m cooking.
Why blog? I’ve always liked to write – I wrote manuals and training documentation for a living for four years – and instead of writing content for someone-else for once, I want to write for myself. Also, blogging appeals to me as a way to enable my friends to keep up with me and my life; I used to write long emails to everyone but now I don’t have the time.
What am I interested in? I’m a knitter; I sew sometimes, crochet occasionally. I love to read, but I commute by cars these days so I don’t read as much. I garden (badly) – I’m good at plant murder. :o) Did I mention food and cooking? And I’m interested in frugal living and investing.
Where did my internet handle come from? “PipneyJane is the pet name I had when I was a child. “PipneyJane from out of Spain.” I think my sister would say.
