All About Kirsty



Hi, I’m Kirsty – I live in the beautiful seaside town of Whitstable with my husband and 2-year-old son. I am a part-time primary school teacher. I have lived in Kent for most of my life and feel very lucky to live by the coast. One of my favourite places to be is by the sea and now that I have a son we spend lots of our time at the beach. Kent – the Garden of England – also has beautiful woodland and countryside to explore as well as a host of beautiful towns with a great choice of independent cafes, restaurants and bars. I can’t wait to share my favourites with you.
