It is beautiful afternoon. I left work early to take Harry scooting at the park. He was very happy to see MY Mummy. But when we got to the park he insisted on taking his new suitcase (thank you Grandma!) for a walk instead.
I am a 43 year-old mother of two. At work, I am Alison Pike, and I am an academic psychologist specialising in family relationships. In my other 128 hours I am Alison Williams; I live with my (civil) partner Sian, and we co-mother our two boys, Harry age 6 and Tom age 3. This blog is a record of how academic psychology influences (or not) my family life.
