Surviving Working From Home During The School Holidays

If you are a parent that works from home you will know that once the school holidays begin your work/home life balance will take a nosedive. No matter how good your intentions are to be the ‘perfect’ all-rounder, in reality, something has to give because there is no way you can continue with the same workload whilst trying to entertain the little ones… or not so little ones!

This has been a new concept for me as I Continue reading “Surviving Working From Home During The School Holidays”

Well, here we are in the first week of February and I thought I would give you an update on how we are all coping with the changes and how the start of pre-school has affected us both…

Re-Discovering Yourself After Becoming a Mother

I have always been a worker. I started out doing a paper round after school, went on to have a Saturday job at 16 and after leaving college I decided that working was for me and not studying. I worked my way up in a well-known retailer and had such a passion for it that you would have thought I owned the shop myself.

Just goes to show what a new job can do for you!) I went on maternity and had planned to return to work but my new found motherly attachment had other plans! I knew I had to be at home with him and I knew I wouldn’t have been happy going back into full-time work.
