Aug 20 2018

I went back to work the other week after almost a year of maternity leave and I have to say that, so far, I am really enjoying it.

Government must invest in Mothers and Children

Feb 02 2012

There is a building for sale in my local community for £250,000 huge windows, really fab art gallery and place for Mums to work and earn money in Pontarddulais near Swansea. This could change Mums’ and children’s lives. It used to be an old school. My friend Merrill has a shop in Hastings Old town called The Wardrobe. Approximately two years ago I met with Bag (our nick name) and she told me she was making significant money every month from selling second hand designer clothes.
