Hard to believe it's a year since I discovered the blogosphere and found an outlet for my rants and drivel about being a working mum in the 21st century!
If you want to read why I started the blog and what my thoughts were about being a working mum a year ago click here for my first post. Rereading it, I can see all the elements of my life there - stressful work, being ill, (mostly) thoughtful husband, gorgeous daughter and too much housework!
A year on and I am still no nearer to finding any answers to the dilemmas and difficulties facing working mums in the 21st century. Why do we feel we should have it all? Why are we racked with guilt when we try? Why, if we are working full time, are we still doing most of the childcare and housework?
However, despite not finding answers, (or changing the world), I am finding ways to achieve a balance in my life:
I've stopped applying for extra responsibilities at work, I'm just doing my job to the best of my ability and trying to enjoy it.
I've now got daughter coming to school with me so I can be a proper mum taking her to school, picking her up and helping her with her reading and writing.
The house is almost finished inside; we've done 10 rooms in two years!
