We all have those moments, don’t we – that point in between meals when you get the munchies big time but don’t want to cook or prepare food. For some people its elevenses – a little something to tide you over to lunchtime. In our house, the problem area is three o’clock when the children first get home from school but it’s too soon for tea. And I know more than a few mums that curl up with a snack or two (and a glass of wine) later at night, in front of the television (yes, you, I’m watching…..)

If your child is about to head off to travel the world on a gap year, you may have some concerns about how you’ll stay in touch while they’re away. Luckily, there are plenty of ways that you can reach them and they can reach you, quickly and cheaply. This article will look at the various ways you can keep in touch with people wherever they are – and how you can share your child’s incredible experiences in far-flung places.
Email is, without a doubt, the easiest and cheapest way to stay in contact with your child whilst they’re away. While your child is travelling, they won’t have to look too far too find one of the countless internet cafes that have sprung up around the globe, so you won’t have to wait long for a reply.
When I took over the Mum’s the Boss blog, I soon realised that the blog posts that are absolutely the most popular are the cake recipes.
Now I love a home made cake as much as the next person, but I can’t honestly say I do a huge amount of baking. I wanted to wow you all with my signature cake, but my brain went a total blank. So I had a chat with my very dear friend Angela as we met (for coffee and cake) in Costa one day.
Your signature cake is the mug cake – she said. Don’t you remember you sent it to me a couple of years ago and my waistline has never really forgiven you.
There are certain times of your life where this is more so than others! Unfortunately I seem to have to make mistakes to learn, and even more unfortunately you often have to watch your children make predictable mistakes in order for them to also learn the lesson. At present these mistakes tend to follow the theme of:
‘Someone will get hurt’
‘You will lose it’
‘Not a good idea’
As a general rule, working mums are probably one of the most selfless collections of human beings you are ever going to find. How many times has a mum gone without her lunch to pick up the shopping for dinner that night, or skipped on her exercise class to make sure that her child makes it to yet another sporting event?
As more people have begun to telecommute or work from home, the home office has become increasingly common. Having a home office offers a number of benefits, such as financial savings, privacy and organisation.
It’s never too late to get on the road to financial success. There may be no such thing as miracles or overnight successes, but with a bit of forward planning, determination and hard work, you could turn your fortunes around and improve your wealth and overall financial happiness in the long term.
