I have two children of my own, Oscar is 15 and Hector is 2. Before childminding I had two different careers. I then trained as a web designer and had my own business before changing to childmindingafter the birth of my younger son. I am a keen cook and enjoy making things. Knitting, sewing, decoupage, crafts, embroidery and the such like are my favourites.
