Mummy says….I have worked online in one way or another for eighteen years, and have seen such a change with all things digital. I think I am quite digitally savvy, but then when I actually sit and think about it, I realise I still have a lot to learn! Do you need to boost your digital confidence too? If you do, there are some awesome FREE digital workshops with The Post Office Broadband and Google UK….

  9. This is a great idea for a workshop. It can definitely be daunting when you are unsure about how to use certain digital technologies. Might have to pass this to my mum as I’m always having to help her out with her phone and laptop.
