About me

I didn’t want to be a teacher.  I wanted to be a writer (actually, I wanted to be a student, but that had to end at some point).  I never thought that motherhood would change me so much.

So this blog is about these three things (plus the odd bit of random other stuff) and these days I write a post at random intervals.

Oh, and about what it’s really like to have a child with Down’s Syndrome.

  1. Good afternoon,

    Sean Harford, Ofsted National Director for Education, has written a letter in response to your letter to him. Can you please get in touch with me to discuss? Ideally we’d like his letter to go on your website, as a comment on your open letter perhaps.
