My husband and I were fortunate enough to have a healthy baby boy from our first round of IVF and have a frozen embryo to use in an attempt for a second child. If this does not work I no longer meet the criteria for free IVF treatment on the NHS as I am now over 40 and have one child already. As IVF costs an average of £5000 in the UK with additional costs for medicines, consultations and tests I decided to investigate how to have treatment as cheaply as possible.

As a first-time father of a highly vocal six week-old daughter, you will not be surprised to learn there are some moments I don't exactly relish encountering each day. For instance, being woken by my little girl's siren-like wail first thing in the morning and changing a nappy with a particularly 'heavy load' are generally moments which make me think 'I wonder how busy Mummy is right now?'

I will never forget my husband's face when I said "We want to have a natural birth" to the midwife. I was 38 years old and this was my first pregnancy. Slightly shocked was an understatement. He obviously knew me better than I did. I was subsequently assessed at our local "birthing unit" and given the all clear. We opted for a water birth and I anticipated a magical experience with my husband lovingly holding my hand and me breathing in all of the right places.

Growing up as an only child, I developed something of an overactive imagination from the hours I would spend reading from my library of classic books. From the magical world of Narnia, to Dick King-Smith's heroine Sophie, and her penchant for slimy snails; I cherish those stories and the memories of getting lost in imaginary worlds.

My family loves Halloween. We live in the villages rambling Manor House at the top of the hill. It's grand, it's huge and it's in dire need of repair. The trees are far too tall which block out most of the light while the floorboards creak, the wind whistles though the single glazing and the boiler sounds like Thumper every time it springs to life.

When I first started researching home education many, many years ago, I was very excited to learn about home education camps and made a mental note to go once the children were old enough.

Autumn is my favourite season. None of my family likes the heat, and our idea of the perfect holiday would probably involve mountains rather than beach, so when August ends and September and October roll around we all breathe a sigh of relief. Autumn has always been a time of exciting changes (when I was little I would get bored over summer and look forward to going back to school) with a sparkle in the air, longer nights and beautiful long, blue skies during the day. Then there's Halloween, which my family loves, lurking just around the corner. More »Clear blue skies and early evenings, autumn leaves and Halloween creeping
