Welcome KV!

I am a Sydneysider too....with two little boys, 4 and 19 months (who are atm dancing to one of their favourite songs - Jet "Are You Gonna Be My Girl") which is a favourite thing to do after dinner!

I wish I had gone into teaching (history of course), but the history bug only really took hold of me after uni, so I am a nerdy scientist instead.

Be prepared to add lots of books to your wishlist hanging around here!
