Child Health Matters

Posted by & filed under Anna's Blog Roll, Childcare Matters.

What is happening to our children? Autism, asthma, diabetes, learning difficulties and ADHD. Having worked in the childcare and education sector for 35 years why am I seeing more cases of Autism, and children with SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) than ever before? Today this poses a huge topic for discussion, debate, and ultimately… Read more »

Child Protection

Posted by & filed under Anna's Blog Roll, Childcare Matters.

As a society – responsible adults, and parents – shouldn’t the emphasis be to protect our children?  So, why are many governments still pushing these covid childhood vaccines when the risk profile of covid to young children is minuscule? I believe there are far too many sinister implications surrounding these jabs and the more research… Read more »

Posted by & filed under Anna's Blog Roll.

How quickly life changes. Only a few weeks ago I posted a blog about our beloved Queen and suddenly she is gone. We enjoyed the sunshine one beautiful afternoon as children at my nursery had photos taken with a giant cardboard cut-out of Her Majesty, and we celebrated the release of my picture book, Rianbo… Read more »

It’s ages since I did an inspirational blog, and as my personality leads me to be an encourager, I had the idea to do an Inspirational A – Z. My thoughts beginning with ambition, belief and character, I’m finally making a start. Realising how much there is to say on each of these topics I… Read more »

A letter from the Palace

Posted by & filed under Anna's Blog Roll.

Thought I ought to post a copy of my letters from the Palace! It’s a little late now – event over – but it’s not every day that an envelope falls through the mailbox with a Windsor Castle or Kensington Palace water mark. With the celebrations and spectacle of the Platinum Jubilee of Her Royal… Read more »

Bug Bolognaise or Caterpillar Curry?

Posted by & filed under Anna's Blog Roll.

I was going to do a blog about faddy eaters thinking how difficult it can be to maintain a healthy diet when our children won’t eat this and that. By that comment you know what I mean. Anything healthy is a struggle in many households, and apparently the UK ranks as one of the highest… Read more »

Write, draw, doodle.

Posted by & filed under Anna's Blog Roll.

Let’s write, draw, scribble, or doodle. I suggest there is nothing better or more therapeutic than putting our thoughts on paper. Journaling is something which I advocate for all. Yes it empties the thoughts from ones’ head. Helps us to de clutter the mind, which has to be a good thing. Did you know that… Read more »

To jab or not to jab?

Posted by & filed under Anna's Blog Roll, Childcare Matters.

Do we jab our children? Time waits for no man, and there has recently been a huge outpouring of revelations and a surge of authentic medical evidence concerning the negative effects of the covid 19 vaccine. I expressed my opinions – particularly regarding children – in my October 2021 blog. I have always known something… Read more »

Children’s picture books

Posted by & filed under Anna's Blog Roll.

My last blog I chatted about covid vaccines for children so now on a lighter subject, back to literature. I am thrilled to announce that another picture book in the Rianbo’s Travels range has just returned from the printers. The official launch date is yet to be released but as the title is, Rianbo goes… Read more »


Posted by & filed under Anna's Blog Roll, Childcare Matters.

The dictionary definition tells us the meaning of the word is to delay in doing something, to put off, think about it too long, even be lazy. Well, there’s some truth in that but certainly not the lazy, angle. I’ve never been so busy. Just temporarily lost my mojo for writing. My last blog was… Read more »
