OK, so she's more infamous than famous but I think she will be famous one day.
This is a great article by a mummy friend of mine writing about part of her trip across America last summer.
What she did leave out was the rather panicked plea I got from her when she had made it to Detroit and been fleeced by her rental car company. Since we were on that side of the Atlantic, I had offered to help and dispensed some suitably useful advise about insurance and hire cars.
Mel is now writing a book about the experience of taking her boys on a trip of a lifetime. Give her your support!
PS In case you missed it, Mel is the author of Toasters Don't Roast Chickens, the amazing and inspiring story of how she dealt with her son's chronic health problems. It will make you think twice about the advise and prescriptions your medical professionals are dispensing. It will also force you to look at what you feed your children.
