As I’ve been a stay-at-home mum ever since Jacob was born, we’ve never really had the need for childcare for working hours; as I’ve always been there. Of course, both boys have gone to either nursery or pre-school once their government funded hours have become available; but obviously these are only for so many hours a week. Noah still only attends for a half day, two days a week, and two full days.
Since I’ve started working from home I do find it difficult to concentrate and be productive when I still have Noah here (and both boys during the holidays!). The main work related issue I have is when I am invited to attend events and meetings; I often find it difficult due to pre-school hours and no other childcare so usually have to decline. Read more

April is here, spring is upon us, which means lots of long days spent in the garden are ahead. With Jacob being at school now, and Noah now going to nursery for three mornings a week, I will also have the garden all to myself for a few hours a week – heaven! Well, I will be sharing it with a dog now, also…
We moved into this house one and a half years ago, and have done quite a bit of work on the garden already; but, we still don’t have it near where we want it. I know we will get there eventually though, and I hope we can put some work into it this summer, so it is all ready for us to enjoy completely next year! Read more
It’s been a few months now since I reached target; just over three of them, in fact. It does actually feel like it’s been longer to be honest. I haven’t shared an update since becoming a target member so I thought it was about time I got my thoughts down on paper; well, virtual paper! I was going to say, I can’t remember the last time I went to weigh in dreading getting on the scales, but that wouldn’t be entirely true. The truth is, I’ve been really struggling for most of the year already, and it’s almost March! Read more
