About Me

I am a mother of two, originally a Chartered Accountant but now a stay at home, home educating mom.   My oldest (or big sister) is my 14-year-old daughter and the reason we started home schooling and my youngest / little man (or little brother) is my 11-year-old son.  We are originally from South Africa and have been living in the UK for many years.  The reasons why we home educate are in this post Why Home Education ?    I am not anti-schools in fact I know lots of wonderful teachers who I admire and who have given me wonderful ideas and guidance for our learning.  I just believe that for my daughter and my son this is the best option.

This blog is me sharing some of our “learning projects”.  This may include ideas for baking, doing arts and crafts, themed projects or it may be a snippet of our SPD journey that we are on.

The crafts featured on this blog are all made by my kids (and sometimes a few of their friends), so they are not going to look professional, they are child friendly craft activities.  My main objective is to nurture a love of art and crafts in my children.  I do not expect them to create perfect pieces.

Please come and visit us on our facebook page where I will be sharing links to lots of other great learning sites and learning activities.

And I am also on Pinterest here – ofamily

  1. Thank you for stopping by and liking my post. Always happy to meet a fellow homeschooler! Although it’s almost at an end, and was often challenging, I loved homeschooling my children; enjoy it ALL!


  2. Nice to meet you! I have a 3, 5, and 7 year old. I look forward to see what you will be doing with your children!

    Your posts make me wish my kids were younger. Everything you’re doing with your son and daughter is so creative and fun.
