Holiday childcare…the juggle is real


When the girls were little I naively believed that childcare struggles would drift into oblivion as they reached the nirvana state of free childcare; School.

It’s four weeks in, and the question I’ve been bombarded with for four and a half years (“Do you think you’ll go back to work?”) has been well and truly replaced with “How is the new job going”?

The one where MMT went back to work…

For me, there was always going to be that moment. The moment I realised that the set up of blogging during the gaps of being a stay at home Mum wasn’t going to cut it any more. more “The one where MMT went back to work…”

Freeing up more money for the things that matter most

*contributed collaborative post

As many people have observed throughout history, it’s really difficult to imagine ever having “too much money.”

No matter what your particular situation is in life, whether you’re single, or have a family who depends on you, it’s inevitable that you will find yourself feeling – at least sometimes – that it would really be great if you’d have a bit more income, and a few less expenses.

Returning to work – habits to help make working work for you

*collaborative post

This spring, I am making the daunting step back into the world of being a working Mum.

Some, perhaps the people who have come to intelligently realize the benefit in always improving, find pleasure in working hard and developing in the best manner possible, and finding employment that is sure to never prevent them from improving.

I got the job…

Last autumn, four years after being made redundant, I decided 2019 was going to be the year I looked to return to work. That said, I had anticipated an entire series of blog posts about seeking flexible employment, appealing to my network for any kind of part time role which might fit the bill and scratching my head looking for an organisation or workplace whose ethos fitted mine.
