a foray into mumsnet



Last week, an editor from an UK online parenting forum called Mumsnet got in touch with me and asked if I would write an 800-word article about my decision not to have children, as someone who makes children's books. I'd touched on it briefly last year when a Radio 4 editor invited me to talk about it on Woman's Hour. But the presenter, Jenni Murray, mostly glossed over it and had me talk about Oliver and the Seawigs instead (which was fine by me!). I'd never written a public article on the subject, and since I think things through better when I write them down, I felt that writing the article would be a healthy thing to do. I'm fairly sure I don't want kids, but I find it's always good to check in with myself every once in awhile, just to make sure. You can read my article on Mumsnet here.

I've taken part again in The Guardian's 'How to Draw' series. This time, learn how to draw a Jampire! But you have to catch one first...



And here's a more simple tutorial, which you can print from the Jampires website.



And if you'd like a slightly trickier drawing, here's Level 2! This little Jampire's jar-diving for JAM.
