About Meg

A little bit about Meg
Meg Pickard is a geeky, crafty new mum who currently lives in south London with her husband, brand new daughter and a grumpy cat. When not on maternity leave, she works at the Guardian. She likes old cameras, baking, tinkering online and has been blogging since it began with a W.

What one thing are you proud of so far in your 38 years?
I’ve managed to keep a sense of curiosity and exploration. I like trying new things and gaining new skills and I try to learn something new every year. Last year was crochet. This year is motherhood!

What one piece of advice would you give you 10 year old self?
I know you love Wham, but don’t give your heart entirely to George Michael: it’s unlikely the feeling will be reciprocated in the long term.

What challenges do you think you’ll face as you approach 100 years old?
Well, the country will be under the strain of an ageing population. We’ll be living longer, but needing more healthcare and services – hope we’ve saved enough for a long, long retirement! Also, I get bored easily, so I hope I’m not housebound by then. At least I’ll have a flying car…
