My first year of having two kids has come and gone with a big party for my daughters first birthday over the weekend. So the hardest part is over apparently.
A Mum and an Accountant
I know I'm not the first person to be a mum and an accountant nor the last. I don't want this blog to be patronizing or offensive in anyway but hopefully some mums or potential mums might be able to relate to some of these blogs. It is simply my thoughts and how I'm getting through some of the juggling acts. Also, I know that in a few years I will probably have found something I enjoy doing or some sort of work life balance and will be in a less stressed out place but until then, or as I get there, I think I will vent all my frustrations out on these blogs!

I’m not sure if I’ve become lazy or maybe my priorities have changed. After my first burst of getting my website set up, I’ve just let everything slide again. I know after my first daughter, I enjoyed having a year off but I was ready to go back to work but on a part time basis and my career wa
As my daughters are starting to sleep longer through the night (not all night yet though!), I’m getting time to work on my business. The fun part of designing a logo and setting up a website is what I’ve been doing for the last few weeks. My instinct was to go for pink and purple with lots of f
I am so glad the summer holidays are over! Looking after my niece and nephew as well as my two girls was hard work and it was only 2 days a week. I have the utmost respect for teachers and other child carers.
I’ve got so much to say but almost nothing has happened that I don’t know where to start. Hopefully, I’m in the process of getting my continuity practice agreement with someone fairly close to home thanks to emails I’ve received from accountingweb members. Once I get that, I should be able to a
Good news on the accounting front, my training records have finally been accepted by ACCA.
