It is very tough doing this half way around the world from my own mother, to whom I am very close (although she may disagree!). I find myself quite jealous of my sister, who has Mum on her doorstep to offer advice, support, wise words and baby sitting whenever she needs it. However, the daily emails I get from Mum are a delight to read as she imparts her wise words of experience to me over the net.
Her email today started with one lone sentence in bold:
"I think you should stop reading all the literature"
Very sound advice.
