Hi I'm Claire, I'm a parenting blogger and social media manager living in South East London with my husband and two children. I have a daughter who is just about to start school and my son is nearly one. I love to be able to share my parenting experiences with you all. It certainly isn't easy being a Mum, but I like to think I've learnt a lot along the way which I am keen to tell. I also love to support small and local businesses, and share my career and blogging tips too!
