Meanwhile back in Lesley's garden we were treated to locally baked Battenburg and chocolate cake, a large pot of tea poured into 'the best china', all in the perfect rural garden. My almost 90-year old Mum enjoyed the convivial company and Lesley's daughter took my two to the 'secret garden' to roll down the grassy slope.

Many of the women enjoying the benefits of Rural Mums mix their rural life with motherhood and work. Lesley is a talented Graphic Designer whom we have enjoyed working with on many projects - and is the designer behind the Rural Mums website. Full of ideas and enthusiasm, I'm sure Lesley's design skills and innovative thinking will, supported by husband Karl and with partner Sue, drive the success of Rural Mums.
