Hi, welcome to my blog. My name is Clare Froggatt.
I am teacher, a devoted mum and an aspiring writer. I love public speaking, little kids, children’s literature, good coffee and sun-filled days.
My life and career were put on hold year in 2009 when my eldest daughter Sam was diagnosed with Leukaemia. Instead of teaching I was waiting for doctors, nurses, blood tests, bone marrow biopsies, lumbar punctures and for a bone marrow donor to save my daughter’s life.
I started blogging to keep me focused on what is good, to remind myself that there is hope and to share the journey with others. We all need hope, don’t we!
I’ve been married for 27 years and have three great kids aged 25, 22 and 18. We share our little blue cottage near the beach with a very naughty poodle type dog called Rusty. Life is magnificent but it has its ups and downs. I feel like a girl on a swing navigating my way through the highs and lows – trying to make sense of life now that everything has changed.
