A #WeeklyWins special: the highlight of my blogging life

I’m feeling quite flattered today. When I started my little family and lifestyle blog 7 months ago, I wasn’t sure if anyone would read it. In all honesty I thought I’d probably do it for a few months and it would run out of steam. Still, I felt like I had something to say. I wanted other working mums to know that the struggle is real! They are not alone in feeling frustrated or guilty. Similarly, you can be a superhero and fit everything in, because let’s face it that’s what parents do every day. I began it as a way…

My Weekly Wins #10

I can’t say I particularly know what went on this week. I spent most of it in a daze as Small Boy decided to wake up very early three days in a row and I was a zombie for most of it. One 2.30am start had me drinking Red Bull at my desk at 8am. That was a weird day – I was coming out with lots of ideas all morning and then hit a wall by 3pm and had to go home while I was still safe behind the wheel of a car. But even in the blurriest weeks…

My Weekly Wins #9

It feels peculiar doing a list of wins for this week as it’s not been a good one as last Saturday night, someone very close to us passed away. This week hasn’t been one of wins. It’s been very sad.  But there are at least things I’m thankful for, and perhaps this is a good place as any to put my gratitude out into the universe. My ability to spin plates I was once described by a medical professional as being the equivalent of an endurance athlete when it comes to dealing with stress. She was right. Many counsellors over…

My Weekly Wins #8

My weekly wins are a little early this week as tomorrow is Mother’s Day and I’m sure you’ll all be busy. I’m actually spending it at two year old’s birthday party. Also, I’m nursing a migraine and words may fail me soon! This week has been pretty busy on the blog front so I might bore those who don’t work in digital comms or the blogosphere, but stay with me folks!   Blog admin beaten So it’s been a week focused on blog admin for me as the General Data Protection Regulation implementation in the UK looms. For those who…

My Weekly Wins #7

Each Sunday I reflect on my weekly wins – the small things in life that well or made me smile. As a busy working parent it’s easy to be overwhelmed and stress, but there’s still rays of sunshine even in the most manic week.

My Weekly Wins #6

It’s been a weird week… again. I took a few days off from my day job, which basically means with my working pattern a whole ten days off work in a row. I had so much planned, especially as Small Boy was still going to be in nursery for the three days I usually go into the office. I’ve recently bought a new camera so I was going to have a day out taking lots of lovely shots and familiarising myself with it. That didn’t happen. I also had a spa experience booked, and while that did happen I did…
