About Me

Hello there – I’m Fi – a mum of two, PR maven by day and a blogger by night.

I started this blog a few years back as a way of sharing motherhood really. Over the last twelve months though, that journey through motherhood has involved a transition back into the world of full time working (amongst many other things!) and it’s this that I want to write about most often.

I adore my children (obviously) and I adore my job. Life is a constant juggle of childcare, extra-curricular activities, nothing in the fridge and business trips but I am learning to be more organised (it helps) and to laugh at least a little bit every day.

So this is my blog, a working mums diary if you like where I will no doubt be over-sharing all of the good, bad and mediocre parts of life juggling a little too much.

I hope you’ll stick around and enjoy my ramblings. If you have any questions then fire them at me on Instagram or Twitter

    I’m so glad I stumbled upon you. Your business based blogs have had me begging for more. I’m new to blogging, self employment, marketing, living in the free world and ra ra ra. My ‘Saving The World’ previous career was ms dos based (I kid you not) so I can’t proclaim to understand all your tips, but I’ll get there, tiny baby steps…and I’m hooked, so thank you x

    I would like this for my Wife, she hates winter mornings, so this may help!

    My partner suffers with SAD so I have wanted to get one of these for a while, but I also think it would benefit me

    I have wanted a Lumie lamp for a few years now after my mum got one. I suffer with Bi-polar and struggle in the winter months with getting up for work and I really think this could be the answer, the problem is I cannot justify spending the money on myself as it always goes on the children. x

    I became a mum for the first time at 42, now 43. I am nothing like how I thought I would be. Now I just try and survive every day. Great blog.

    Finding a gift for others has always been a problem for me. I never can imagine what others would want. But the handmade section at Amazon is also new for me and sounds really good. Thanks for sharing the tip. 🙂

    Nice knowing a little bit about yourself! It’s nice that you have opened a blog to document your journey through motherhood and that this brought you awards and even tv appearances. Great job!

    Hi

    I just read your piece about Slimming World. I had Googled SW because I was a bit miffed and your blog appeared.
    Your comments resonated very closely with my experiences and opinions about it all and reflected a conversation (well, monologue) that I had with my parter just this morning after my weigh-in. I am so relieved to see I’m not alone in thinking this. The session I attend is 99% women – all of us seem at varying levels of misery – unhappy, overweight, saddled with being repeatedly told via the unending media bombardment everyone endures nowadays, that we are valueless, failures, inadequate, lack validity because we don’t look a certain way or own the “right” mass of over-priced, “must-have” junk. No wonder we comfort eat!!
    I was musing about chucking in the towel with SW and going it alone but was casting doubt on my thoughts, wondering if I was just “bailing out” (failure, see?) But no, I’m not bailing, just tired if being told I’m a naughty girl for liking chocolate and being fat-shamed, which, as you say quite correctly, is exactly what it amounts to.
    You are also right when you say those who really love me and care, don’t mind how I look. They all think I look fine!
    Thank you for your honesty and emboldening the “me” that matters! Cheers!!

    This is a super organize blog. Thanks for sharing this. Having the checklist for every day and to each family member to do their household chores, definitely, this one will help everyone to do the division fo work.
