It's time to hang up the rosette. Janet has just started her first week as MP and I, and our family are very, very proud of her. It had been some long hard weeks prior to her election, but I am pleased that it has been worth it, especially with all the admirable support she received throughout the campaign, and now in Parliament. Well done Sweets!
Over 7 months now, and adopting what was once a two and three year old has been testing at times, and a continuous learning journey for Janet and I on how to be a parent (as well as educator, enforcer and entertainer, to name a few). As a parent, I agree that it is a full time job, and even though I have been back to work for some time now, it has become a continual juggling act to do both. But, that's not to say it isn't without its pleasures, like visiting local parks, museums, woods and farms, and watching Cbeebies, playing with Lego and jigsaw puzzles, and reading them bedtime stories.
