The “child whisperer”

This morning, I had some wonderful time in my favourite cafe, Saint James Cafe in Malvern, editing my new book that is due out later this year. When I walked in, I was greeted by my nephews.

Both of my kids have chronic medical conditions, and, for my older son, things got much, much worse.
