About Me


My name is Emily Goldthorpe. Nice to meet you.

I am writing a book. I guess you could say it’s a coming of age story, for the younger adults amongst us.

I’ve been saying I’m writing a book for the past 4 years or so… I’m still saying it but now I feel like I’m doing something about it by sharing the first draft with you lovely folk. I’m writing intuitively and without a ‘plan’ or structured outline but hey, that’s just the way I like to do things. Little planning has gone on in my life, since I understood what planning meant.

I also write poetry so am sharing that too and the gratitude diary is because it feels delicious to find something, each and every day to be grateful for. I also find it brings me closer to that something bigger than me, it delivers more than a ‘thank you’, more like ‘I’m listening!’… and there sure is much to hear beyond our usual chit chat.

That is all. I hope you enjoy my stories and reflections.

From my heart to yours, thank you for reading.

  1. Good morning Emily! Thank you for joining me on my site. You’ll find a lot of good stuff and all kinds of things that may or may not serve you. I’m eclectic and therefore I write for all kinds of people. I also love, love writing and it soothes that neurotic side. I look forward to following you on your journey. I love your title.:)


    1. Hi Kate, it’s so great to connect! I was led to your page by Mrs Mother Dirt and after reading your post about finding time to write, I was hooked. I don’t have kids but I resonate with your attitudes and priorities. Writing is my passion and I pretty much share all that I write (apart from the book I’m working on) so I hope you enjoy :). I also look forward to following your journey, it’s great to be able to connect with like-minded people. Have a wonderful day.

      1. Yay Emily! Aww, I’ve connected and bonded with some great talents here. Love your blog title by the way. Very clever and fun. Yes, I do a lot of homemaking and such but it is really for everyone, you just cancel out the kid part and take the advice. I have something for everyone and all issues!

      2. That’s so great, it is such a wonderful platform to share talent. This blog got me writing again, I went through I dip in confidence and starting this blog ignited my fire again. So many talents are able to create and express themselves, it’s a real delight I think. I’m glad you like my blog title :), thank you. I love how you inject humour into your writing, it’s important I think, especially when matters can get a little intense (ie: politics). I look forward to reading more
