I seem to be on some sort of conveyor belt. I spend at least 50% of my waking hours every week complaining that I’ve got too much to do. Clearly, this detracts from the time I can actually spend getting things done. And then it comes to the weekend. My husband is off work so he can have the kids and I can work, right? Wrong. Work-life balance The problem is, my family have this awful habit of doing fun things at the weekend. I know right? So inconsiderate. So I can either sit in front of a computer screen…

I know it’s difficult to believe, but sometimes I’m a bit disorganised. I know, you wouldn’t believe it from my polished exterior.

I sometimes wonder how much it’s right to share as a blogger. How much do people really want to read about what we’ve been up to at the weekend? And more to the point, do they really want to know about the ups and downs of our everyday life? Trying to be useful Since about the beginning of the year, I’ve been trying to stick to writing things that people will find useful.
