Keeping Focused When You Work From Home

Working from home is perfect for me and my family. I have three young children so working for myself means I don’t have to worry about things like; child care in school holidays, being around for the school pick up, getting time off for plays/sports day etc. It gives me the freedom to be there for the things I deem important and would hate to miss.

The Sound Of Happy

Advertorial brought to you by C&G baby club I miss the baby stage I really do; don’t get me wrong my ovaries are well and truly in retirement but I miss my little babies being super cute and staying still. They’re still super cute but now they also answer back, flood the bathroom and draw on my walls – not so cute. I miss the giggles, those little baby giggles that seem to last for hours and hours, usually just brought on by a look in their direction and almost always at bed time when you’re trying to settle them…
