I called my blog ‘This Bug’s Life’ because sometimes I feel like a cockroach squashed under the Shoe of Life, but mostly I feel like a bumblebee – bumblebees are unable to fly but no one told them that so they do it anyway! I even have a bumblebee tattoo on my hip.
I am South African – a former university lecturer in Journalism, now working as a language specialist and translator in Stockholm, Sweden. I love animals (particularly cats and South African Boerboels), English, languages, stationery, handbags, fashion, beauty products, useless information, and bungy-jumping so you can see plenty of those on my blog. Always willing to oblige requests for posts and answer any questions I can, so feel free to contact me at janet.carr AT gmail.com or use the contact form below.
