We walk a lot (especially Stephen!), and enjoy exploring the historic elements of the Northumbrian landscape – castles, rock art, Whin Sill – they all fascinate us. We’re also interested in the birds we see around, both on the coast (on the nearby Farne Islands) and in our garden.
Katherine knits and spins and sews – there’s always lots of projects going on in my mind if not on my needles. You can see my first attempt at quilting in the blog post on My Story Quilt.
Stephen is a mathematician and can often be found with some mathematical tome, still puzzling over the theorems he studied as a young student. He’s also particularly interested in the thought and writings of the American monk, Thomas Merton.
We love our garden, and our cat, Poe, and they both feature in this blog diary. (Poe has her own introductory page.) Sometimes our six children creep into the blogposts, but they all live down south, so prefer to stay out of the picture!
We both read a great deal. Stephen enjoys classic detective fiction.
