I have been a mother at home for coming up to 7 years now, and have found that it’s an occupation without limits.

As well as writing about the day to day discoveries, I am an active committee member of the organisation Mothers at Home Matter, who have been campaigning for the actual and financial recognition of this role as a valid and worthy one for the last twenty years or so.  I am also an editor of the newsletter, the latest version of which can be seen at www.mothersathomematter.org and should soon be available to download.

Being a mother at home allows me to be there for my children whenever they need me.  It also allows me to be there for others too.  I am Co-Chair of the Friends of my children’s school, which organises three major fundraisers per year, as well as countless other events, mostly involving cake.

I am also a singer, part of a fabulous trio called The Frockettes, www.frockettes.co.uk and we are available for weddings, barmitvahs and any other event you can think of.

    Hi I just found the link to your blog at the bottom of an email my sister Magda W sent me a while ago. I’d forgotten all about it. I am also a stay at home mum with 2 kids, same age as yours – my daughter is turning 7 next month, and my son 5. I have really enjoyed and related to what I have read so far and enjoy reading more in the near future! Good work :) Anna

    • Thank you for the encouragement! It’s just finding the time to sit down and write, but now I’ve started I definitely don’t want to stop. Poppy

    Hi Poppy,

    I’m currently doing some research for a new series for Channel 4 about mums staying at home or going back to work. I would love to chat to you about your experiences and thoughts on being a full time mum. If you have a moment please drop me a line to the below email.

    Best Wishes,

    Victoria Balfour
