Returning to work after maternity leave

It seems like only yesterday I walked out of the office and started my maternity leave, full of excitement for the next chapter I had ahead of me. That was 13 months ago, a long time when you say it out loud. Yet here I am, sat here with my work bag packed, my lunch made, my clothes freshly ironed, ready for my first day back in work tomorrow.

What Mothers Day means To Me

As a little girl Mothers Day was a day I looked forward to. It was a chance to show my mum just how much she meant to me, and I loved nothing more than making her a homemade card, covered in hearts and glitter, and bringing her burnt toast and cold tea in bed.

How long is your daily commute?

For seven years I worked in London, commuting from my home in Essex everyday. On a good day my commute totalled three hours and consisted of a bus, train and tube. Over the seven years that works out to an impressive 4,830 hours, or depending on which way you look at it a staggering 201 days spent on public transport commuting to work!

Living With A Fear Of Flying

Flying fills me with dread and anxiety. I white-knuckle grip the armrest, or the unfortunate person sitting next to me, for at least half the flight, my palms growing clammier as we gain altitude. I look around at everyone else on the plane who seem to be taking it all in their stride, calmly browsing the in-flight entertainment or taking the opportunity to grab a quick forty winks, and I feel alone, and a little bit silly.

Max – 9 Months Old

I can’t believe it but another month has passed and Max is now 9 months old. I actually didn’t get around to posting his 8 month update for a number of reasons. Firstly, not much actually happened in terms of development, it was a bit of a slow month. Related to this I actually had a bad month in terms of my emotions. I was left feeling like Max was behind in reaching certain milestones, and in turn this made me feel like I was failing him as a Mum.
