Welcome to my fairly new site!

This is my precious family!26197925_1557646497605229_1148120721267272142_o.jpg My name is Jacqui Gill and I live in Kent, UK. I am fairly new to blogging, so please bear with! We are a close-knit home-schooling family and enjoy spending time together.

FACT 1: We all have a South African accent!

FACT 2: My daughter Skye is 16 and nearly finished her first year Environmental Science Degree with the Open University…yip, she’s 16! That’s what home education can do for you!

FACT 3: We are super lucky people to have a husband and father who works from home everyday, 365 days a year!!

FACT 4: I have a law degree, which I completed in 2016!

FACT 5: My son, Troy (nearly 12 years old) knows more about computers than I dare to imagine…again, all because of home schooling!

FACT 6: Skye used to do ballet, contemporary and jazz dancing but has given that up for ice-skating!

FACT 7: My husband, Paul and I met in 1991, that’s like…27 years ago…(whaaaat?)

FACT 8: Troy has the biggest heart in our family.

FACT 9: We have two cats and five chickens. Our kitty in the picture (KC) was shot last year by thugs on the farm. BUT he survived! (Happy outcome)

FACT 10: I am an ultra-super patient person! Great for home schooling…hehe

FACT 11: Mum and daughter are both arty and crafty…I love sewing and crafts, and Skye loves to sing and draw

FACT 12: Troy is into his gadgets, Xbox, Photoshop, music and keeps a super-tidy bedroom!

FACT 13: My hubby is a biker in his spare time (in our day we used to ride together!!) and still cruises around on his Harley during the summer months

What will you find on my site:

  1. Well, if you are into HOME SCHOOLING / EDUCATION like we are then you will find lots of educational resources, some FREE, some for sale by ME (that is, my own digital goodies) and some sponsored.

Where I recommend products, I will always disclose that I am recommending a product or service and you may see this statement on the post: “I may get commission for purchases or clicks made through links in this post“. 

I also participate in the Amazon Affiliate Program, and you will see this statement on the posts where I am promoting Amazon products: “We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.”

2. Into SEWING and CRAFTS? Hopefully you are, because I will be posting lots of FREE sewing patterns and tutorials.

3. RECIPES – yeeep. I am a self confessed NON-cook. So I need all the help I can get in this genre. You will find some easy recipes I’ve tried and liked, so you can try them too. Trust me, they won’t be difficult ones, as I am culinarily-challenged!

4. PRINTABLES & FONTS – mmmm. I do love a beautiful font or two. I will be sharing my finds with you guys too. Just remember to read each owner’s license restrictions before downloading and using commercially.

 

If you’ve read all the way down to here, then thank you!! I hope you enjoy my blog!!
