Why you should never touch a strangers child

This is a topic that really annoys me! It’s on a par with our pregnant bellies suddenly becoming public property the moment we start to show the slightest sign of a bump! Why do some people think it’s acceptable to touch a strangers belly? I just don’t get it! It’s rude, intrusive and invading my personal space.

I started blogging as I thought it would keep me entertained whilst on maternity and for when I became a stay at home mum.  I was right! You really don’t realise how much time and effort creating a readable, well liked blog really takes! I also thought it would help me make new friends, meet new people and learn new things.  I’ve never been very creative. I was… [Read More]
