Growing Up Too Fast!

So, like every parent out there at one stage or another, I’ve been left wondering recently where my little babies have gone! They are growing up too fast, they seem to have been replaced by two actual walking, talking human beings with personalities and little lives of their own! (I know, how very dare they!)

Motherhood And The Myth Of Perfection

If I were ever to openly describe myself as a perfectionist I think most of my friends and family would fall about laughing. Not in a nasty way – it would actually be a fairly reasonable response. I don’t know how to iron properly and I have no inclination to improve – I like my […] Read more…

The Perfect Baby Number.

What is the perfect baby number? It turns out I’m not sure, and that is coming from someone who thought they had it all figured out. I was never a baby person, as a child I never played with dolls, and as a teenager I would have told you that I was never having children – […] Read more…

I am not one of those people; please don’t misunderstand, I’m no doormat as my husband will attest. I really do love to have […] Read more…

What actually makes me happy?

  I’ve recently had cause to reflect on the rather fleeting nature of life. It does appear that with the arrival of children, careers and the general hecticness of adult life, time seems to fly by at an ever increasing speed. It’s made me wonder if I’m doing enough to live each day to the […] Read more…

Working from home with children, how to get stuff done!

  I have had days where so little has been achieved it’s embarrassing. Days where my to-do list has magically doubled in size and I have spent my time going in circles, both literally and metaphorically. Days like that are rubbish, they make you feel hopeless. I know, I’ve been there. I have learnt though […] Read more…
