About The Parent Social



I’m Francesca (usually Fran), a Londoner now residing in Surrey with my lovely husband and our three wonderful, and at times challenging, children. My eldest daughter is in her fourth year at school and my twin daughters are in reception class.

I blog about the things that we do, the places that we visit, the toys and games that we play with as well as all the every day parenting (and some non-parenting) stuff in between.

My love for communicating and writing, mirrors my passion for trying to be the best mum I can be. Interests include good food, Italian culture, football and personal finance.

I also blog over on TalkMum and Habyts, and write sporadically for a number of other sites. The Parent Social has featured in/on:
