The 7 Year Cycle

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.

Blogging mojo

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. Two part time jobs and a family to look after does that – unsurprisingly!  Continue reading “Blogging mojo”

What is blogging?

Nowadays, blogging can mean so much.  The word actually means a web log which is basically a diary entry onto the web.

  • Press snooze
  • Wake up
  • Shower
  • Quickly get ready
  • Wake up the girls

Get Rich, Lucky Bitch! by Denise Duffield-Thomas

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.

My Next Move

Since my oldest daughter’s school is now sorted, I’ve been feeling like I need to do more work or more something with my life. Even though I like the idea of being a kept woman of sorts, it’s not all that glamorous and it can get a bit boring. There’s only so much cleaning and cooking you can do without going doolalee.
