Hi! Welcome to my blog! Let’s keep it short because I have a fairly limited attention span. I’ll assume you do too.
1. What’s your story?
My name is Shobha. I’m from New York and now living in London. I’m married to a laid-back Englishman who can’t resist the occasional acerbic comment, especially after a glass of wine. We have 2 young children and 1 grumpy older dog. I used to be a lawyer but that wasn’t very creative or conducive to family life.
2. Q. What’s it all about?
This blog has been going a little over a year. I started off writing about home and design and then, along the way, it veered off into other things that interest me – travel, family and art.
Mr. N and I also like travelling. One of the reasons we have decided to stay in London for the mid-term future is to provide a cosmopolitan upbringing for our children. I grew up in the suburbs of New York and it was beyond tedious. Now that the kids are getting older, we are looking forward to sharing our interests with them.
For 2014, I thought I’d try out a Monday, Wednesday and Friday posting.
- Manic Mondays – my post will be about family or something that’s happening locally.
- Nesting Wednesdays – I’ll focus on home and design.
- Escapist Fridays – I’ll write about travel.
And, since I can’t seem to stop dreaming/planning/writing about travel I am also the co-founder of Just Go Places, a site for inspiration for the inveterate traveller (even those who have grown up, gotten jobs and started a family).
4. Q. Enough about you. What’s in it for me?
Amusement? Inspiration? A little light reading? I’m grateful anyone is reading!
5. Q. What’s the connection with highly flammable synthetics?
A. Actually NYLon is an old acronym for NY (where I used to live) and London (where I live now). Technically our U.S. base is now in Massachusetts but MALon sounds too much like an antacid drug.
6. Q. How do I contact you with my questions, suggestions, submissions, incoherent ramblings etc. ?
A. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
