Today I am featuring the ABCs of Our Little House in the Country. Ciara is the lady behind the scenes sharing “thoughts, tips, tricks, tales and fun” from their lives. With an extensive experience as a primary school teacher the blog is filled with great ideas for kids and families. Check out her fun ideas for a Water Themed Birthday Party or her DIY Fairy Tale Castle! So, here are …

I am currently taking a career break (unpaid leave) to be a SAHM to my little monkeys. In Ireland, public employees such as teachers are permitted to take a certain number of years “off” and then return to their same job/position after the agreed time – extremely helpful for parents of young children.
