One of the people who has been encouraging me to do more writing is my mentor, or a posh term is ‘spiritual director’. I have been meeting with him over the last two years, about every two to three months.
I really enjoyed being on maternity leave after my daughter was born. Here in England they are very generous and I was given nearly a whole year off! I felt privileged to be able to spend so much time getting to know my child, doing lots of activities with her and meeting up with other mums.
