Blimey these weeks are flying by aren’t they! Just two weeks of the summer holidays left now! I think the kids are ready to head back to school now in all honesty and I am certainly ready for a bit of me time and catching up on work time! Life is all about half marathon training right now and I will be so pleased when the 24th of September is over so we can relax a little bit. It’s my 40th birthday in a couple of weeks and there is an awful lot of secret things going on around me at the moment, I can’t get anything out of the kids no matter how much I offer to pay them though… so I guess I will just have to be patient 😉 Read more
If you sit and think for a little while I am sure that you can think of one single person or one group of people that have gone out of their way to help out another person or indeed an entire community. These people do whatever they can to help out and generally go unnoticed and often without thanks!

We had a really quiet week at home this week, Boo went to stay with my big sister for a few days so it was just Bugs and I for most of the week. He went on a couple of play dates and I got to enjoy a bit of time to myself. I can feel bad at times for not taking the kids out and doing loads of summer activities especially when looking at everyone’s summer photos on Facebook and Instagram! Everyone seems to be on holiday or at the beach, theme parks etc but I have to remind myself that we have already had a two week holiday in June and the kids are far luckier than I ever was when it comes to days out, holidays etc so spending some time at home really isn’t a bad thing!

Yesterday the baby of the family turned seven and we’ve been busy celebrating. He was much better this week so he was able to go to football everyday which he absolutely loved. He had his party on Friday and then Liam came home and we celebrated as a family yesterday. It was so nice to have all of my kids together for a couple of days. Sadly Liam has gone back home today as he has to work tonight but we should be seeing more of him after the summer as he is changing universities to be closer to home. Read more
When I first started this blog almost seven years ago it was very focussed on promoting mums like myself who were running their own businesses, along the way that seems to have got lost and my mum in business features diminished. Today I am relaunching that feature because I want to do what I can to help other mums that are running their own business because every single one of us deserves to be a huge success no matter what we choose to do.
