Welcome to my first blog post

Welcome to my first blog post

I am Philippa and as this is my very first blog I imagine that only close friends and family will read this the same day I publish.  Even so, I intend to make it useful for those who come across it at a later point.

Why am I blogging?

My aim with this blog is for you to get to know a bit about me to see whether you think it would be fun or useful to read more of what I write and maybe even work with me.

What subjects will I cover?

Anything and everything to do with designing and building homes and gardens is of interest to me, and particularly ideas to make the most of our rather modest sized homes (ideally making them better, more sustainable and more accessible).
If you want me to discuss something in particular, then please just let me know.  There is so much to write about it’s helpful if I know what you want to read.

Please let me know what you think

I would love to hear your thoughts and I will certainly read all comments even if I don’t reply to each one.

Keep it friendly and polite:

1. It feels more sociable if you use a name, but it can be a nickname.
2. I welcome constructive criticism, but I will delete all comments that I think breach the bounds of good behaviour.
3. If you write a long comment, please separate it into several paragraphs to make it easier to read.
