As I’m sitting on the train back from London for what could be the last time in a very long time, it’s starting to feel like an end of an era. Working from home, for a company in London, has been the best thing I have had in a long time, and looking through my CV, it is also the longest job I have had to date.
Since February, I have been juggling two part-time jobs as well as doing everything else. Last month I finally admitted that this was getting too much especially since being a mum and getting sleep was starting to suffer. Continue reading “Juggling two part-time jobs”
For a while, I thought I had lost my blogging mojo. Before I started this new part time job, I had written a batch of blogs to come out on a weekly basis for about six weeks. Over these six weeks, I then proceeded to do absolutely nothing related to my personal blog. Not only did I not know what to write about, I just didn’t have the time.

Thought I would try something different and write out my day as a list. Yesterday was a particularly unproductive day and I felt very frustrated by not getting a lot done. Tuesday on the other hand had been a really good day. I had managed to complete a few tax returns. Anyway, this was my day yesterday:
- Press snooze
- Wake up
- Quickly get ready
- Wake up the girls
The title ‘Get rich, lucky bitch’ aims to reflect what people think when a women is rich. Not the hard work that she has put in but that she is lucky and she is a bitch. I had this book in an audio format for quite a while. It came as a bonus for buying another book but I never got round to listening to it. To be honest, I prefer reading to listening so I kept putting it off. Then something happened which reminded me of this book and I started listening to it.
