my name is Amy Ross and I am a union organiser, social worker, gardener, friend, partner and all round stroppy opinionated woman. I have few passions greater than social justice and the welfare of animals. This is simply a forum for my various musings, primarily focussed on gardening, politics and the randomness of life. I hope to stimulate discussion, thinking and debate as well as provide myself an outlet for ideas. I have never done a blog before so I will probably make all kinds of terrible faux pas and break all kinds of rules so enter at your own risk!
