Women in Tax – Leicester

Last Thursday I attended the women in tax meeting at the RSM offices in Leicester. I wasn’t sure what to expect. Would it be formal? Would I have to talk about anything? I’m I intelligent enough to talk about anything tax related? It has been a while since I felt proficient in tax. The most I do now are personal tax returns. And I do generally leave it till the end of the year to really worry and think about them.  Continue reading “Women in Tax – Leicester”

Still none the wiser

I’m still none the wiser as to what I am doing with my life.  I’ve written about it in this post on Accountingweb which you can read here: confusion-and-plans

However, since writing this post, I was driving down from my mum’s house at around 7pm. Usually, I can take it or leave it when it comes to driving however, this time I really did enjoy the drive.  The girls had both fallen asleep, (one of the main reason for driving home at around 7pm) and the sky was turning from bright yellow sunlight and wishing I had sunglasses on, to a red sky with orange streaks, to a dusky blue with strains of the leftover orange .  It was so beautiful especially with my favourite Bollywood songs softly playing in the background (another ploy to get the girls to fall asleep).

But as a worry wart, that’s one thing I can’t seem to do. Continue reading “Changes and worries”

In my last personal blog, I said I was doing a frugal week and I think, even if I didn’t manage to curb my spending that much, I did become more conscious of what I spent it on.   You can read more about it here on the Accountingweb blog, as well as my usual moans about MTD and it raining at 3pm, just in time for the school run.

End of another tax return season

End of another tax return season

January is always a crazy month. After the busy periods starting from about September with the start of school, birthdays, Christmas and Diwali, coming to the end of January feels like a huge relief.  You can read more about my January on the Accountingweb’s website. 

Another tax return season done. Continue reading “End of another tax return season”

New Year’s Resolutions

We’re half way through January and it almost seems a bit late to be talking about new year’s resolutions but for the last three years I’ve been recording and keeping a track of my new years resolution and every year they seem to be basically the same: lose weight, do more exercise, eat healthily, be a good mum, work harder – and this year is more or less the same.
