Hi! I’m Mary. I’m 26 and was once the Loch Ness Monster’s close neighbour, but these days you’ll find me in South Germany on the banks of the Danube.

I’m a freelance proofreader and newly-enthusiastic yogi.

Bobbins and Dictionaries was a name I came up with to cover the things I am most interested in and therefore most likely to post about:  sewing and language. You’ll also find various posts on expat life in Germany, the occasional recipe and pictures of nice places I’ve visited.

Grab yourselves a cup of tea (turmeric tea is my favourite at the moment; at least until I re-find the coconut tea I had in a cafe in Inverness I’ve been searching for ever since) and have a look around!
