    7 When her second child was born with Down s syndrome and had to spend the first six months of her life in hospital due to some serious health problems Caroline made the decision to stay at home for a few years to look after her children Caroline explains Although I wasn t working as a teacher I had many challenges to overcome looking after my eldest child who was just 2 and caring for a very sick child My husband s career also involved us moving houses every few years and then just when I thought things were getting easier our son was born so there was never a dull moment The inspiration Caroline s eldest daughter has always loved books and was reading before she started school Olivia who is two years younger has Down s syndrome and although she enjoyed looking at books with an adult she was more reluctant to pick up books on her own So to encourage Olivia Caroline made a book using photos of the family and it was a real hit Olivia carried around the My family book all the time she wouldn t put it down Caroline explains I noticed that she was starting to recognise the words as we had read it so many times and one day I spotted my younger two year old son reading the book to his teddy carefully pointing to the words as he said them he was word perfect too Turning the idea into a business Turning an idea into a business is not that easy Caroline was confident that she had a good idea and despite searching the internet could not find anyone producing reading books for children that used personal photos and the correct text font for early readers Lots of her friends wanted her to make books for their children but she knew that they needed to look like proper books and not home made if she was ever going to sell them Then Caroline met an old friend who happens to run a design agency for a coffee one day and she offered to help Between them they came up with the simple but educationally based design for the books A year was spent setting up the company finding a professional printer prepared to work with her and the website designer and developing the love2read concept Caroline explains I felt as though I was on a very steep learning curve and I had to take it one step at a time but I was determined to get this business off the ground despite all the problems and setbacks Fortunately she had lots of support and encouragement from her husband friends family and local business support networks and finally launched the website to coincide with her son starting full time school Caroline comments There is so much to do setting up a business I had no idea what was involved I now understand why so many struggle to even start trading

    Shrove Tuesday is celebrated the day before Ash Wednesday and is therefore the final day before the beginning of Lent a Christian festival leading up to Easter Day Shrove Tuesday always falls 47 days before Easter Day so the date varies from year to year In 2014 Easter Day is on Sunday 20th April so Shrove Tuesday is on 3rd March Why do Christians call the day Shrove Tuesday The name Shrove comes from the old word shrive which means to confess On Shrove Tuesday in the Middle Ages people used to confess their sins so that they were forgiven before the season of Lent began What is Shrove Tuesday Shrove Tuesday is a day of celebration as well as penitence because it s the last day before Lent Throughout the United Kingdom and in other countries too people indulge themselves on foods that traditionally aren t allowed during Lent Pancakes are eaten on this day because they contain fat butter and eggs which were forbidden during Lent What is an English Pancake A pancake is a thin flat cake made of batter and fried in a pan Sugar is sprinkled over the top and a dash of fresh lemon
