We trusted that caretaker! He fooled us all.

We trusted that caretaker! He fooled us all.

On the 9th June 2020 we found out that the former caretaker at the children's first primary school had been charged with 21 offences in relation to children. I have not been able to write anything as I didn't want to hinder the court case, but today he was sentenced; he only got 5 years! No parent should have to go through this; the guilt, the anger, the disgust. He fooled us all. I am grateful I got to hug them tight throughout homeschooling, it comforted me for that period of time to know they were safe at home. VIEW the POST

It's tough to get your head around this pandemic, so I thought it would be helpful to set out some thoughts on the new rules. A different perspective can be helpful to put your own thoughts into some organised order, or confirm what you thought in the first place. This is my opinion only, of course! VIEW the POST

One of the families is from America and we have fun interpreting words and their meanings. There have been some funny misunderstandings; like the one with the pot plant…

Spending time with Grandma at Christmas time #familytraditions

My Grandparents are a huge part of my life, from the day I was born they have always been there for me. They did everything for me; boxes of food for university, dinners on a Saturday night and then sitting back and watching Inspector Morse. A family Christmas time. I loved my time with them both and it was devastating to lose my Grandad, he was like a Father to me growing up. I am so glad he gave me away and got to meet my children.  VIEW the POST
