I am very lucky to have been able to work from home since having children. I was planning to go into Primary School teaching and I was half way through my PGCE when I found out that I was pregnant with Bob.

When The Going Gets Tough, It Might Be The Time To Relax

I have just tried to find a photograph of myself and my husband to accompany this post and I had to go back to 2010, before Bob was born!

My First Attempt At A D.I.Y. Haircut

I haven’t had a haircut in far too long! I struggle to find time to go alone. The last time I went I took Bow with me and it wasn’t much fun. I now embrace my curls, rather than straightening my hair. This hides the fact that I am in desperate need of a haircut for a while. Eventually though, something needs to be done! I was still struggling to make an appointment with a professional so I decided to [click here to read on]

Take Your Financial Awareness To The Next Level

It is hard for a new family to start managing finances. With the little time at hand, whether or not you have one child or more, you eventually get settled into a decent yet tiring routine. Once this routine has gotten easier, and every task is made almost mechanically without realizing it, then you might actually feel like it is perfectly fitting for your skills as a multitasker to consider a part time or stay at home job.
