Bumps & Babies Round-up: Newborn advice

I’ll let you in on a secret; I wrote this round-up early as I knew that I’d have a newborn to be dealing with once the publish date rolled around! In fact, shortly after submitting March’s round-up, I discovered that my C-section date needed to be brought forward by two weeks! So, I thought I’d […]

Ok, so apparently the warm weather is about to arrive. I mean it has to come now, right? We’ve had enough of winter already!  One of the things I look forward to in April and May is the fact that I can throw open all of the windows and doors, let the fresh air in […]

Environment Round-up: Sustainability

   It is great to see you writing more posts about sustainability. When I was at university we had to learn official definitions of sustainability, because the word wasn’t in common use. But now, people understand we’re living beyond the capacity of the Earth and to change this we need to change our behaviour in […]

Expat Round-up: The experiences of being an expat parent

Parenting is challenging because there really is no one way to do it. We all have our ideas of what it takes to be a good parent. Question is; how do expat parents fare against different cultural beliefs, government policies and so on?  My beliefs have altered over the years. The ideals I had as […]

Mums in Business Round-up: Outsourcing

Running a small business involves wearing a multitude of hats. Yes that’s right hats.  One minute I’m an accountant, the next minute a social media manager, manufacturer and then photographer, AND that’s just within MY own business! To ensure our business runs smoothly it’s sometimes prudent to outsource certain tasks to other individuals to let […]

LOL Round-up: Getting on a bit

The exit sign for my thirties is fast approaching.  Having turned 39 I can no longer say I am in my mid thirties.  To be honest it was an exaggeration to say it when I was 38.  So as middle age looms over me, I feel the situation is best handled with humour.  Therefore this […]
