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.

Finding style confidence and having fun with fashion again

I think one of the most beautiful things about growing older is finding a serene self confidence and lack of fear of judgement about menial things. Don’t like my hair? My tattoo? My bright clothes?
