Five Tips For Working Out How To Change What You Are Doing With Your Life

I was over at Radio Verulam with the gorgeous Dapper Danny Smith last month – sorry but I forgot to download the audio, so no dulcet tones this time! Loads of people have been asking me about making a big life change, so I thought I would give some tips.  It could be any big change job, relationship, house, country, […]

My Big Secret Project Is …….

I’m at last going to tell you what my ‘Big Secret Project’ is! It might seem a bit random, but I’ll explain myself in my next vlog, as it’s a really interesting story of how things all add up together sometimes. So drum roll please ……. (Oh yes and as you can see Little Dimples was REALLY helpful with the […]

Problem Corner: When the Mum is supporting the family.

So many people I know have been affected by redundancy like us. It is now a FACT OF LIFE and something that no one should be ashamed of (easier said than done). This guest post is from a lovely blogging friend of mine Muddling Mummy.  I’m sure many Mums who are having to work at the moment feel the pressure, […]

Should Mums put themselves first a Lot, a Little, or somewhere in between?

  How important is it for us Mums to maintain a self of our identity after having kids do you think? How much should we be doing purely for ourselves every day or every week? Lots, a Little, or somewhere in between? I had a ‘discussion’ with a mate about it (thank goodness she is a good mate and doesn’t […]

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 […]

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 […]

Seriously, Why Am I Crying, He’s Just Starting School?!!!

I cried the last morning morning I dropped curly headed boy at nursery 8 weeks ago. I cried when I picked him up. I cried when I bought his school uniform 3 weeks ago. I cried when I cuddled him last night. And I cried when I dropped him off this morning at primary school. Seriously, what a sap!  Luckily […]

Who am I, Who was I, Who will I be?

Have you ever wondered what happened to the girl you used to be, or who you will become, or who on earth you have ended up becoming?  I suddenly started wondering about this at the weekend as I watched one of my favourite films ‘Practical Magic’ with Sandra Bullock.  I felt a tinge of sadness, as though it reminded me […]
