It started with the autumn term and now it’s crept into spring term. At first I thought it was great. Two weeks when potentially things […] The post Taking time off appeared first on workingmums.co.uk ..read more

I can sense my daughter in […] The post Four years on appeared first on workingmums.co.uk ..read more

Even the dog has been fairly chilled, for a one year old Jack Russell. A night […] The post The changing face of love appeared first on workingmums.co.uk ..read more

Yesterday was the first meeting of a charity I’ve set up for my daughter. It’s been a while in the making because setting up a charity is not a quick thing – nor should it be.

It’s half term. At least it is for some parents, although not for others. Half term in our house is not happening until next week. The good thing about having half terms at different times is that it tends to be a little quieter at work over two weeks instead of one. Colleagues are away.

This week began with headlines talking about how we might need to keep working until we’re 71 by 2050 due to various demographic factors – basically too few working age people.

There are big moments throughout childhood, but the GCSEs and applying for university are up there among them. We’ve been through both several times now and it never really gets any easier.
