There’s not a week that goes past that I don’t mention (or at least hint at the fact) that I work from home, so apologies for that. But in my defence, when you work freelance/have your own home office it means a lot to you! Walking in to my iMac on my desk each morning after a crazy stressful school-run with the twins really can…

Life as a blogger has evolved quite organically for me. One day, back in April 2014, I started this little blog as a result of a few things but mostly because I was at home full-time with my baby twins and it was a fun hobby to do. I’d previously had a serious Human Resources job, where I had been trying to climb the corporate…

And the most dramatic blog post title award goes to me on this occasion, I believe? Let me explain. On Friday morning I woke up a little later than normal, Hubby was away and I had forgotten to set my alarm the night before. I thus decided (last minute decision) to pop to the gym that morning, have a quick intense workout and then come…

Sorry guys, I know that I keep banging on about how much I just love being a blogger and how working as a freelance social media manager is THE BEST thing that happened to me career-wise, blah blah blah…but for me it really is the perfect job. I get to work at something that I love and enjoy, however, I can prioritise being a Mum…

I wrote a post last week about why I’m getting back into the art of blogging again; i.e. why my blog is still important to me and how I think ‘the blog’ still has a role to play in todays modern way of taking in information. It was actually really nice to get so much great feedback on the post – and, more importantly –…

“Did you ever stop?” I hear you say. Well no, not really. In the 3.5 years that I have now been blogging I’ve never really taken a long break at all. I think I have still blogged nearly every week. However, over the last 6 months or so my blog content has become much shorter, less ‘chatty’ and predominantly sponsored – and the reason that…

When I started this blog 3.5 years ago blogging wasn’t really a ‘big thing’. People certainly weren’t aiming for it as a career choice, nor were many making much money out of it. Mine wasn’t very polished at all and was simply the trials & tribulations of raising 1-and-a-half-year-old boy & girl twins. Totally focused on parenting matters because that was my entire life at…

Now that the twins are in full-time school I get asked ALL the time by friends and family whether or not I am busy enough these days! Which makes me laugh out loud! Not only does the day between 9am and 3pm go incredibly fast (it really does) but I have so much work and life stuff to cram into those week days that I…

Something rather big is happening in my life in just a matter of a few weeks time. Something pretty nerve-wracking, daunting, emotional…and yet extremely exciting too. In the first week of September 2017 my beautiful twins Harry & Lottie will be starting school – full-time – heading into reception class for their first primary school year. Part of me wants to hide under my duvet…
