My name is Dawn Chapman, I was born on December 13th 1977.
I am a writer, I always kept a diary and then a journal. Now I am here and I transferred all my blog entries from around the internet to here too.
I live in a bungalow with my husband, my mum and my stepdad. After losing my nan in 2007 we decided to keep the family home and bought it from my mum’s brother, we built a granny flat, and we share everything. Including the garden. I love being here, I love sharing. It’s like two houses but in one. More importantly, I get to see my mum just by nipping next door 🙂
They are a very big part of my life, so I wanted to add a special page just for them and for those that are interested.
It is a slight work in progress, as they all are. Something always needs doing.
Info on it is.
5000 gallons. 22ft long and 18ft wide. 4.8 at its deepest with a shelf around 1ft from the back wall. Gravity fed to Nexus 300.

Solar panels to help with the cost.
And CCTV to watch from inside the house… always a bonus when they can’t see you, they act normally.
Thanks for looking. Any koi related blogs are tagged ‘koi’ if you do a search for them.
