Confidence is a funny thing, isn’t it? On the one hand, if you’re too confident, it can be perceived as arrogant (and non of us British folk like anyone like that). But if you haven’t got a lot of confidence then every one and their dog seems to have advice for you on how to get more confident — because apparently ‘you totally need to…

Hi, how are you? All good I hope — I bet you’re looking forward to the weekend. Dave’s been away in Scotland all this week so the twins and I can’t wait for him to get home later today. I have had a busy week of work (all the deadlines seem to have landed this week!) so it’ll be nice to switch off tonight and…

Since I turned 39 on Christmas Eve (what a cruel day to have a birthday, thanks Mum!) I have been in full-on reflection mode on the last decade of my life. Because, for me, my thirties was a tale of two halves — terribly tough, and yet also pretty incredible too. When I turned 30 I had a big meltdown (ever the drama queen) and…

I haven’t written one of these ‘life lately’ posts in ages – so I thought I would sit down and do one just to encapsulate things that are going on for us as we start a new year. 2018 has already been lovely and also a busy new start too for our little family.

People often ask me how I manage my Mum-life and freelance business. I have been told that I come across on social media as though I have my act together!

I’m a really busy Mum of (almost) 5-year-old twins. The majority of my week revolves around them. My typical weekly tasks involve the preschool run, running errands, shopping, meeting clients, the preschool pick-up, making dinner, bath & bed. As well as housework and ALL the other jobs that go along with being a Mum! Because I am getting them ready in the morning I don’t…

Seeing as December is nearing an end and 2017 is upon us (eeeek), it feels time to get organised and ready for the start of new tasks doesn’t it? I don’t know about you but at this time of year it prompts me to want to start ‘afresh’, achieve many goals for the new year ahead and get more organised. I am, however, a VERY…

Politically, what a bizarre year 2016 was. First Brexit (who’d have thought that?) and then Trump became President of the USA. I’m hoping that the world shapes up to be a good place for my twins to grow up in because I’m a real advocate for fairness and equality. Here’s hoping. That aside, on a personal level, 2016 has been pretty amazing and exhausting. Here’s why…

Family… The twins are really enjoying preschool which is lovely as they have so many little friends. I have actually considered putting them in for more days (they currently do 3) as my work is SO busy lately; I keep swaying from one decision to another. The ‘Mum guilt’ however keeps eating away at me and so I don’t know what to do. I am not…
