Even with their laptops still at their dad’s house until he returns them this week, the children now know all about my blog. Three caught sight of the page over my shoulder earlier and said ‘is that your website Mummy?’
Soon all three of them were gathered round reading over my shoulder, touchingly enthusiastic about this little project. ‘Mum you’re actually a really good writer’ said One. As she is a truly superb writer and can craft words better than I ever could, that is really welcome praise.
