Hi, I'm a freelance writer living in Hastings - a little seaside town on the South coast of England. With my husband Mike and two children, 29 and 21, I enjoy the choice of free music every day of the week in Hastings (you know - where William the Conqueror invaded in 1066), pub quizzes, holidays in France and trying to make little eco changes to create big effects on our world. Having set up a compost heap, recyled everything that isn't pinned down and turned our boiler down a notch I then started washing my clothes at 30% only to find that now we have cat fleas in the house (our son brought his two cats to visit while we were on holiday!) we should have washed everything on very hot. Anyway I found this website by pure chance and have to say a big thanks for all the advice on fleas! Bowls of water down two minutes and the harvest has already begun - just call me the grim reaper!
