Typecast is not your average parenting blog. In fact, the title is somewhat of an oxymoron. The author, Nickie, is a young grandparent with a a myriad of life experience and is trying to break the mould of typical parenting. With a grip on social networking and a honest approach to everything, each update on the Typecast blog will leave you wondering how Nickie manages to cram it all in. Nickie OHara is wife to one, Mum to three and Nana to two. She is trundling through life, coping with whatever is thrown at her. She works full time, is studying for a degree with the Open University and tap dances in her spare time.
