A morning in the life of a working mum..

7am – The day begins, who am I kidding I’ve been awake for half an hour but I’m pretending not to hear the girls fighting over a toy in the next room. 7:30am – Ok get up or we will be late, get up, get up, GET UP.

Time to prepare breakfasts that will only be half eaten as per and potter about the kitchen putting things away whilst the caffeine sinks in. 8am – I can see straight again and spot the time – shit…

Mum’s Essentials Guide: School Run

As you know Maisy has recently started school so we are in full-blown school run mode here and it’s tough, I never got it when people complained about it before but it is seriously stressful at times. Trying to remember to sign their reading book and get the teddy they have to take for their topic ready not to mention getting three children dressed and myself looking semi presentable and out the door for 8:15 to secure a parking space. Well you can imagine most mornings I am running around like a headless chicken trying to get everyone rounded up…
