me: ooh!

Apparently some things do need to be spelled out.

There's something I practice in this journal. It's called "pseudonymity". It's the reason why I use nicknames for my partner and my kids, and why I refer to myself as [personal profile] nanila in posts and in comments. It's the reason why I don't [usually] make public posts linking to items containing my real name.

I know it's not difficult to make a few leaps from the information I provide here to my real identity, but if you are on my Access/Friends list on DW/LJ, it's because I hope there is a tacit understanding that you will respect this preference and not mention my real name, or my partner's real name, or my child(ren)'s real name(s), in publicly accessible entries. I can forgive the occasional slip-up, but if ever this starts to look malicious to me, I reserve the right to remove access.

I will always err on the side of caution with respect to others' pseudonymity as well.

me: wrong side of the mirror

Single parenting (redux)

To stop myself from singing the same woeful tune about single parenting (at least it's only three days this time), here are some photos from the weekend. We gardened, we ate pub lunch (twice!), we walked by the towpath and ate blackberries off the bushes, we played in the sunshine. It was good.
