A Day In The Life In Lockdown

Our days look a lot different lately. I used to feel guilty staying at home with the kids all day. Feeling like they had missed out on some great adventure or the chance to create family memories.

A year of being a working mum..

It’s been over a year now since I dipped my toe back into the world of full time traditional work. I say traditional work as I have been self employed as a blogger/sometimes YouTuber for 5 years, but I’m talking about that 9-5 grind – being in an office with other human-beings – kind of work. There are things I have learnt along the way as a working mum with three children so I thought I would share them with you.
