The Plumbette is Rebecca’s blog on all things plumbing and motherhood, including experiences working in a ‘man’s world’ and juggling life with 3 girls under 5. It’s Plumbing & Motherhood worth blogging about! This blog is written for men and women who haven’t a clue about plumbing and want to know more, for plumbers and apprentices who can relate to Rebecca’s experiences and for girls who wish to embark on a career as a plumber or in a male-dominant industry, while juggling motherhood at the same time.
