Barbara O'Reilly, AKA Babs, AKA Patchwork Cactus is a blogger, a writer, a trash TV watcher and an Instagram addicted shutterbug. Although a journalist by trade, the three week old baby stowed away under her graduation gown steered her away from the world of reporting and right into the blogosphere.
Babs, her almost-hubby and their two kids are attempting to live the slow life in a beach side suburb on the east coast of Australia, they have the rickety house, the pet chickens and the barefoot kids but are yet to find the 'slow'.
PS - She wrote this bio with a nude two year old sitting on her shoulder like an actual parrot. True story.
