Can Mums Have It All

I haven’t blogged about this, despite Cherie-gate etc etc etc.  But this morning I’m grumpy, so I thought I’d let lose and have some fun with it. Can Mums Have It All? This is the big question loads of people spend hours, days and months talking about.  Why on earth are they talking about something so ridiculous and wasting so […]

An Amazing Woman In My Life

It’s amazing what you can find in Tesco’s; I found a 73 year old, Irish grandmother with a huge heart.  She cares for Little Dimples while I work, gives Curly Headed Boy the security of a nearby grandma, and supports me in the way that my Mother would have wanted to if she had been alive.  She would say that […]

Dealing With Being Made Redundant When You Are A Parent

So the big northern hubby got made redundant on monday, perfect timing with Curly Headed Boy’s birthday coming up, followed by Christmas and then Little Dimple’s birthday.  Poor guy, this is the second time he’s been made redundant, last time it was when Curly Headed Boy was 6 weeks old, just after Christmas.  Lovely! So I thought I might as […]

Help, Am I Deluded?

I’ve met my fair share of coach/therapist/healer types who were extremely deluded about either their grandiose plans, their skills or their market actually wanting them. There have also been a fair amount if people with a great deal less training and experience than me, who were a load better at marketing and therefore a hell of a lot more financially […]

It’s All Change On The Western Front

It’s been a weird 6 months, I appear to have been in mega ‘declutter your life’ mode. You would have thought that giving birth to little dimples, and curly headed boy going to primary school would have been enough really, plus getting really sick.  But I appear to have been on a mission. Maybe it’s because now I have two kids, there really isn’t […]

Feeling Disempowered?

Do You Sometimes Feel Disempowered? It’s easy as a Mum to feel disempowered. Maybe you’re not quite as fit as you once were, or don’t go out socially as much, or don’t get as much ‘quality’ time with your other half. Perhaps you are worried that you are not bringing in as much money because you are a SAHM or […]
