I'm an environmental journalist/writer and mum of two girls, Lola and Nell. We live in a big city with my husband/their dad Pete May (who is also an author/journalist and serious West Ham fan), a dog, three hens and visitors (at the mo that's two ducklings!). Living in a thrifty, creative and eco-friendly way is second nature at home - and we had a go too while homeschooling and travelling in Australia and Solomon Islands in 2011. Usually I post once or twice a week on all things child related. For more detail about coping with babies and younger children in a green way see my book, Homemade Kids (by me, Nicola Baird, check out Amazon for copies or via www.nicolabaird.com).
I've got two other blogs that might interest you - one for those of you who want to travel without using planes, see http;//aroundbritainnoplane.blogspot.com and the other is a collection of interviews with the fascinating people who live or work in Islington, London. Looking forward to reading your blogs too! Nicola
