You should be able to do all of this in WordPress.
Go to Settings > Peramlinks and set custom permalinks to %category%/%postname%
In the WordPress admin, create a page called home
Create another called blog
Go to settings > Reading choose home page for the homepage and blog to display post.
Everything is done through WordPress
thank you for your reply Christine.. you advice confirmed what i did actually get working after some sleep ..
also word of warning if anyone uses wamp as a local test server when trying to achieve this .. you need to make sure you have activated the rewrite_module in apache configuration as after doing the above steps when i clicked on the friendly name it would display a page cant be found
hope this will be some use for someone 🙂
