Every now and again I’m approached to post a topic from outside ‘The Bumpiest Path’. Sometimes it’s a paid post, a product review or a sponsored adventure. Not enough to send me on holiday but enough to keep me stocked in coffee!
Blogging is about sharing. My life, adventures and misadventures, and things that I believe are worth sharing because you shouldn’t miss out. Especially when it comes to the topic of Children. It’s as simple as that.
Today’s post is that kind of sharing. No money, no reward just pure, simple sharing, no strings attached. Read this, if you work with children print it and quickly go hit your boss for the registration fee. Tell em ‘Mum Says’
( Good Luck)
