I also have deadlines coming out of my ears, which is great timing as Olive has just started nursery! Although, my heart aches for my little girl growing too quickly. Even my chunky monkey, Frank, is 6 months old now – isn’t there something you can do to slow them down?! I have been working away on the video tutorials for you all, which will be bright, informative, easy to follow and with lots of unmissable tips and tricks – so watch this space! You are about to see a lot more of Frank&Olive…
