notion systems and workflows

Never let the lyric get in the way of the groove.

– Allee Willis (Earth, Wind & Fire)

A bit of background

I’m from the UK and I live in Switzerland with my husband, 3 kids, a dog and a cat. When I’m not faffing around on my computer I enjoy playing piano, sewing and making lino prints.

I made my first website in 1998. I’d bought the jill.net domain (I wasn’t quite quick enough to get jill.com – all the girls’ names had been snapped up by porn).

I wasn’t sure what to do with it, so I put some recipes on there. You can still see the original site on the Wayback Machine.

But then I had kids and got busy, and I abandoned the site because it was the 2000s and who needs another recipe site when there are literally dozens of them out there am I right?

Anyway eventually the kids learned how to feed themselves and I found myself back on the internet. I discovered no-code tools and automations and thought maybe I could have some fun with them.

And here we are. I build systems and pages in Notion, I connect them to other systems via Make.com and I use AI where appropriate to make everything break for no reason run as if by magic.
