So…learnermother, yep – that’s pretty much what I am. Sometimes I think I’m doing ok, far more often I despair that I’ll never get it right. My lovely kids are 10, 8 and 5 and deal with my efforts at parenting with varying degrees of equanimity, as you’ll no doubt find out if you’re going to dip into my blog occasionally. And I guess you could say the same about how the husband deals with my efforts at wifehood!
In other news I’m a Welsh learner, dealing with the challenges of putting my kids through Welsh medium education; I’m planning a major building project to reconfigure our house for our family growing up, and I am co-owner of a games shop – I imagine all of those things will feature in these pages, along with info on my latest project – setting up a local currency for Cardiff. Oh and I also work in Housing. Yep, I am tired pretty much all the time, so please excuse any inadvertent typos or even the odd sweary moment!
So why am I doing this? Well, I enjoy writing and have been toying with the idea of blogging for years. But I’ve never really found something to write about – I always thought to have a blog, you needed to really be an expert on something. Eventually, I gave up on the idea of becoming an expert on anything, ever, and decided to just start writing. And LearnerMother is the result. Enjoy, and don’t forget to let me know what you think, good or bad, on @michelledavis.
