About LuciHindmarshLuci McQuitty Hindmarsh is a mother, wife and writer- in that order. Honest. She is based in London and started her career in journalism before accidentally languishing in PR for too many years – it was the lashings of champagne wot done it. Motherhood allowed her to change track and get back to what she loves – writing. Luci has two blogs. Her personal blog, www.motherwifeme.com is about all things parenting, marriage and anything else that piques her interest. Her other blog, Ma Puce, is part her Ma Puce website, an online resource to help parents teach their babies, toddlers and young children French as a second language. www.mapucebilingual.co.uk Luci can regularly be found loitering with intent on Twitter as @motherwifeme and @mapucebilingual and also ventures onto Facebook.

Hello and welcome to July’s BritMums Education Roundup.
