What self-care for me will look like.

I don’t actually like the term “self-care”. I think it is overused and can be said in a way that implies things have to be done a certain way. However, the care of self in the next few months, for everyone will be important. Coronavirus has hit the world hard, badly and won’t be going […]

Managing me time as a working homeschooling Mum.

As a busy mum who works almost full time, I often found me time hard to come by. Now we have added homeschooling into the mix, juggling working, family life, and making sure our son gets the education and input he needs means there isn’t much time for me. I often think we are very […]
