Two bits of news to share with you...

Firstly, did you know that tomorrow is Freedom in Education day? 

There will be a small (but perfectly formed) gathering in Totnes, with lots of info about home-education and the local groups. I'm hoping to be there for at least part of the time.

Get in touch for more information regarding location and time, it would be lovely to see you there!

Secondly - have you seen the October/November issue of Greenparent magazine yet?  Did you notice that I am now famous?  Yep, those are my words on page 30 - within the 'Learning Special'.  I was very surprised to see so much written.  I replied to a few questions that were asked on the Greenparent forum, and had no idea that they would write an article using my words - I just thought they would maybe take a comment or two.  I'd have written it a lot better if I'd have known they were going to dedicate almost a page to my ramblings ;o)  Other families are also included, and it's a very positive Home-Ed piece.

Onwards and upwards now you know - form an orderly queue for autographs please *silly grin*.

  1. Ah, I didn't know that was you on there! I'm opposite you on the next page and like you, I didn't realise that they'd print everything that I wrote or have such a large photo either! When it arrived, I was having a lay-in, not a child in the house washed or dressed and could hardly recognise this confident and efficient woman who home educates in our conservatory - scary!! It was really weird reading my words, I've obviously come a long way since I first thought about home edding way back in around 2002, I'd NEVER have thought that I'd be writing about it. Fun though. Love reading your blog and seeing another happy, large family and what you get up to. xx
