Hello! I started this blog in 2015 to show how snippets of everyday life can link to wider social issues. As you can tell, my passions as a pet lover and farmer's daughter inform my work to understand and challenge taken for granted assumptions about rural lives and human-animal relations.

I completed an MA in Social Research in 2016 and my project examined the relationships between students and their pets whilst they are separated during university. I then received a PhD scholarship to undertake research which sought to understand the experiences of women farming in England. Find out more about my current and previous research here

Since completing my PhD in 2020, I have worked at the University of Liverpool as a researcher who is investigating the ways in which farmers engage with social media and use it to communicate narratives of farming life.
