I am a mother hen and anything to do with my children I come out in full force … Continue reading Dear Tendai, Do I Look Like A Mother Of 6 On Benefits To You?
In the first series of Blended Families last month, I wrote about introducing Boaz to the children and I was touched by the responses I got from women in blended families.

BBC's HardTalk. Goodness me, I had no idea the programme was such a big deal until today. I only ever watched about 3 episodes of it.
