My New ‘Baby’

cover - small

A children’s picture book! After 6 years I’ve finally published the book that I created from a series of awesome photos taken by my husband of a family of baby swallows in their nest. This is very exciting news for us, but unfortunately it means that I’m going to be very busy over the next few months and am not going to have time to post many updates on this blog.

If you’d like a chance to win one of the copies of Little Bird Lost that we’re giving away then please visit or

I hope to resume weekly updates on It’s Good News Week as soon as possible. Keep well 🙂

Over 80 child soldiers have been freed following negotiations between the UN and militia groups operating in the province of Katanga in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

A total of 163 children have been freed since the start of the year through the combined efforts of the UN and child-protection agencies in the province.
