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. It’s something I’m both excited and terrified about for a whole spectrum of reasons, but the number one worry on mind is how on earth I’m going to stay on top of everything life throws at us as a family of four, with a smaller window of time and having to share my focus between home life and career.

Tales from the grotto

For the final six weeks of 2017, I made a cameo appearance back in the world of working. The land of peanut butter sandwiches chucked together at 7am, styling my hair and applying actual make up in the darkness of the sleeping house, handing the kids over to the grandparents and legging it out the door ALONE.  more “Tales from the grotto”

Santa’s little helper – a christmas job

It’s been three years since I left work. Three years of wearing whatever I like, running to my own schedule, and being based at home.Blogging has however become my job of course, but it isn’t quite the same as a guaranteed income, a workplace that you head off to each day, seeking solace in conversations about stuff other than kids, and what’s going on ‘out there’. more “Santa’s little helper – a christmas job”
