Hi I’m Kim,

I love design, crafts, food, a lot of geeky stuff and trying to make myself a better person. I used to have a few random blogs but decided a while ago to bundle them all together so this site is a mish-mash of everything that I do and love. Just below this intro, you can see some of my projects; keep scrolling down for my most recent blog posts, or select from the menu if you’re interested in one particular subject’s posts!

You may have come over to my site due to my recent ‘dramas’ – I was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer called Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma (CTCL) which is more prevalent in 50-60-year-old men, and more prevalent still in black men! This all happened when I was 28 weeks pregnant. Since then I’ve tried to do a lot more in terms of helping overcome stress and anxiety, as well as trying to make my business healthy and self-running in order to help my family should my treatments not work out!

I got interviewed by BBC’s Lewis Coombes about military accommodation and the problems we’ve had. It was pretty cool to see how they create their stories in terms of videoing different angles, lighting set up and questioning. I’d love to see how they...

Just for info in case readers are curious: I’ve been receiving UVB and PUVA treatment since before Rose was born. I still have some pretty nasty patches so I was referred back to London. I’m going to get some radiotherapy on the worst patches and have...

Why cancer is great!

Why cancer is great!

I made a video about the silver linings of cancer. Sometimes terrible things happen. It’s ok to look for the good in the bad. There are sometimes awful things that happen in life where it’s difficult to find even just one positive – I’d argue...

The NERDsery – a video tour

I’m a huge fan of the Vlogbrothers John and Hank Green on youTube. They have a wonderful outlook on life, aren’t afraid to be excited about the things that they love, and have built a community of fans who call themselves nerdfighters. I am a proud...
