Getting Through with Two Under Two


My eldest will be two May which means my time of parenting two under two is coming to an end.  It’s been an epic two years of tears, tantrums, laughs and memories.  Not all of the tears and tantrums were from the kids either!  I often wonder how I’ve gotten through the last two years alive, but I did and…

Signs of the Zodiac – What does your star say about you?


Recently whilst looking for Office Furniture for Work Online from Furniture at Work™, I came across their information on organisational traits according to our star sign.  As a Scorpio it suggested that I’m a little organised, but a bit of a hoarder too.  This is fairly accurate and so it got me thinking about how I could improve.  Working from home with two…

Making the Most of Life Around Shift Work


Since Hub’s changed his job two years ago, as a family we’ve had to get used to living life around his shift patterns.  Previously he worked Monday to Friday.  They were long hours and he brought a lot of work home, but it was Monday to Friday nonetheless.  He was always here during the night and our weekends were guaranteed downtime from the daily grind.…
