I am Penny Castle. I live in Johannesburg with my husband Shannon and teenage son. I started a blog in 2016 with the intention of documenting my adventures in growing veggies and how they helped me become a happier person.

On the 21 January 2017 all that was forgotten. My elder son, Joshua, was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive cancer: cholangiocarcinoma. He died in January 2018.

Our lives have had to change and so did my writing. These days I write about  happiness and cancer and hope and grief. And despair. And hope again.
I write about sad things and funny things and irreverent things and sometimes (I hope) even inspiring things.
