So who am I?
Difficult question. Without getting too caught up in the potential existential angst it generates here is the short answer: I am a more-than-slightly neurotic mother of two, a registered health visitor, a lover of dark chocolate, red wine and copius quantities of tea. I am Roman Catholic. I am passionately Serious about the value of mothering and want to shout about it.
Why on earth should you read my blog?
If you’ve no paint to watch dry and you are interested in mothers and children navigating the complicated path from birth onwards you might enjoy it. Otherwise I can’t think of a good reason. I have more rabbit than Watership Down, though, and I thought writing some of it down might give my friends’ ears a break.
