That’s what I’ve been up to … what’s the juggle I hear you ask? The mummy juggle of course! Still not sure then let me explain …
I have H who is now a mere eight weeks from his second birthday, I work on a freelance basis in marketing, I run Dandelion Lounge http://www.dandelionlounge.co.uk I also run my home, kitchen, laundry, H’s childcare, Husband and try to ensure thank you, birthday & anniversary cards & gifts are with the right people for the right date. Usually this is a fairly hectic but balanced weekly pattern, I can’t say routine because I don’t really “do routine” and working freelance isn’t a routine work choice – which is why I like it.
Anyway, there I was at the beginning of January in dark, cold, mid credit crunch Britain thinking I’ll be at home concentrating on home, family and Dandelion Lounge – no one will have budget to use a freelancer … wrong, diddly, wrong wrong … bang, squeak, squeal … that would be the sound of the wheels in my life going off the rails! The last three of four weeks has seen me on trains before 8am, my son staying over with Grandparents, me working back into an office (I usually work from home visiting offices for meetings only) and worst of all me wearing a suit – I hate suits. What are suits all about?! They are such a grim requirement of corporate life – the whole power dressing thing has always alluded me.
Its been a crazy month! A bit disappointing at times, exciting at others, but all in all a great month! If the mumy juggle sounds familar to you I’d love to hear your highs and lows!
