Print Passion
I have always been passionate about print. Under the covers with a torch reading an Agatha Christie mystery was my idea of heaven. A little bit naughty but safe! I love reading and the internet has opened up a whole new can of letters in which I can indulge my…

I am the mother of four sons and a grandmother to seven grandchildren. I am also a teacher so I’ve had quite a bit of hands-on experience. My newest grand-daughter has been keeping Mummy and Daddy up in the night for quite a while now and this is the advice…

Websites for Children’s Learning – Or - “miss, What’s A Jonquil?”
How many times has your child come home from school and declared “I have to do a project on...”? Does your heart sink as you know that you will be spending hours trawling through websites trying to find appropriate information for your seven year old? Or answering questions such as…

What! Online Dating
OK, I admit it. I have tried online dating. What can I say? It wasn’t through desperation, more of an intrigue really. My marriage of 18 years had broken down and, quite frankly, I was devastated. Never, never again was I going to put myself through that sort of ordeal.…

Nanny's House
I know that I’m not alone in thinking that grandchildren are precious. Whatever their age, you have seen it all before and can smile. Teenagers are the all-knowing, loud, rebellious and daring people that we once were and we can smirk at their antics. Unlike parents who are now reacting…

You Are Not Finished at 50!
I meet more and more people of my age (I was 53 last week ugh) who say how unhappy they are in their job but they couldn't leave because 'at my age' it seems I'm unemployable. What a horrible predicament in which to find yourself. I was a teacher for…

Just Do It!
