Get your summer started with this healthy yet delicious strawberry ice cream. If you’ve never made your own ice cream before, this is a fab place to start - just chuck four ingredients into a blender, blitz and that’s it! It couldn’t be more simple

There has been a lot of comments with this, and yes a lot of us mums have to look after the children in the school holidays, that's why when mine were young, I was the full-time mum. Now they are older, I work part-time but still feel guilty about that. Yes of course I want to work, and in term time that's great, but the school holidays are a problem. The Government wanted both parents to go out to work, but now we are, what are we meant to do in the holidays. It costs lots to put them in childcare, and to put them in clubs everyday. That's not possible where I live, as I live in a rural area. My husband has some time off but he can't have 6 weeks time off, and i'm self-employed. Its not easy, Its tough on parents working in the summer holidays. In my experience, people judged me when i was a full-time mum, now they judge me for going out to work, even though its just part-time but its everyday. I know parents, both of them work all day, leaving their children home alone and they are younger then mine. Is that right?! No I don't think so, but they do it. And no, we don't have a support system as our parents have ill-health. Not at all easy.
