A few weeks ago I had my first negative experience as a blogger. I wrote an article for another website about the positive side of sending your child to nursery. A couple of anonymous comments were left on the website by posters strongly opposed to sending children to nursery.

Clara’s first trip to nursery

I return to work in a couple of weeks (sob) after an amazing 13 months on maternity leave. Clara will be spending her time between my parents’ house and nursery. So this week she has had some settling in sessions.
