Hi! My name is Cate Bolt, I’m just a normal middle-aged mum with nine kids and an orphanage in Indonesia.

You’ve reached the page formerly known as An Ordinary Life. Somehow, somewhere along the way, something went terribly wrong with the blog and it died. I mourned it for a moment and then I got over it. If you’re looking for the blog, I’m sorry – it’s gone.

This isn’t really going to be a blog – although I might have a rant here occasionally, if I feel the urge. It’s really just intended as a place for you to be able to find access to all the random stuff that I do. If you’re bored enough to want to read about me, you can visit the about page.


My orphanage in Indonesia – Foundation 18  (Yayasan Dharma Sadana)

Ethical handmade gifts, proceeds to the orphanage –  Cabo Pickles on Etsy (STOCKINGS ARE HERE)

My sweary, ranty embroidery shop – Pretty Fkn Embroidery  (proceeds fund me because feeding orphans by saying ‘fuck’ is apparently frowned upon) (SWEARY SHIT IS HERE)


You can follow me on Twitter @catebolt if you don’t mind a bit of swearing.
