How to stay organised as a working mum


As a single, working mum to two busy kids, I HAVE to stay organised.  Without my almost OCD tendencies, things become somewhat chaotic and the kids feel it even more than I do. The house begins to fall apart and the stress levels rise. In a strange way, I’m lucky that I get every second…

My life is like a game: a metaphor

life is complicated copy

Sometimes I’ll work on something and get really frustrated with how things are turning out, so I take myself away from the computer and sit with my phone.  I’ll play a silly game and come back refocused after letting my mind wander to the numbing world of solitaire. There are times when I can’t get…
