My name is Charlotte and I moved out of London and into the countryside two years ago, leaving my career in the city behind to look after my two children. It has been a rollercoaster of a journey, from feeling lonely and isolated and unsure to meeting local mums and being part of a brilliant community and having a calendar of activities to look forward to with the children. I now love living in West Berkshire / North Hampshire as it is not only a beautiful part of the country, it is also an innovative place to be with local entrepreneurs setting up businesses from cafes, lifestyle stores, online gift shops to producing amazing food and local produce. There are an array of delectable cafes and restaurants to meet friends, plenty of child friendly events and places to visit and little luxuries for the parents to enjoy. Despite the British weather, I am particularly passionate about getting outside with the children and nurturing their creativity and curiosity about nature.
So join me on my journey as I uncover more of the local area and share my discoveries so help other local mums make the most out of life in the area.
