NO MORE SMOKES

Ok, so it is clear that smoking will not work with this newfound determination I have to get my weak butt in shape. Just broke all but one and threw away. Dear God, please don't let me find myself digging through the trash for a butt...

Transitions: Career to SAHM to WAHM

Until 18 months ago I didn’t think I could ever be defined by an acronym. Then all of a sudden, SAHM! There it was. Maternity leave was over and I became a Stay-At-Home-Mother. I originally planned to go back to work part-time when my baby reached six months. Once born there was no way I was putting her in childcare so soon. Luckily for me I had a choice. Just. And here I am, a little over two years on from her birth, a fully-fledged SAHM....more
