About Kirsty

Kirsty was enjoying a childless, single and career focussed lifestyle, until she met her husband. She's still not quite sure what happened, but within the space of 12 weeks they had met, married and were on the move. That was 4 children, 7 countries and a beagle ago. Kirsty is embarrassed to admit that after calling 7 countries home over the past 11 years, she still can't pack a suitcase properly.

Trying to maintain a sense of self, Kirsty has tried everything to find the balance. Part-time, Full-time, stay at home, and up until recently, she wasn't sure if she was ever going to find the right option for her.

Last year Kirsty began writing what is now the award winning, hysterical blog, 4 kids, 20 suitcases and a beagle. Kirsty also spends her time sitting in coffee shops, pretending she's just there for the wifi. It's got nothing at all to do with the muffins.

Kirsty is currently writing a book about her travels, delivering 4 babies in 4 different countries, and is trying to remember her new telephone number and where she packed the can opener.
