I’m a happily married 45 year old mum to 7 children aged 6-20. Yes we have a TV. I’m an Anglican Christian. Think Vicar of Dibley- that’s our Parish. I trained as a journalist back in the 80’s and worked in print journalism as a reporter and news editor for many years in both rural and city locations specialising in news and feature writing. I even won an award once! I’m not really a mommy blogger, not even sure what a lifestyle blog is although that’s what I mostly call my site. I was delighted to discover #Post40Bloggers - finally a place where experienced and energetic people can share knowledge, news and talent.
