I explained in yesterday’s blog that I decided to take the whole of August off in order to have a proper summer. So on 1st September I dragged myself reluctantly back to work….
This year the children and I were determined to have a proper summer, after last year’s summer that went wrong. Read on to see if we achieved what we planned…
So you’ve taken to motherhood and decided that it just won’t fit in with the job you did before maternity leave. Or you’ve just received your redundancy cheque and decided to go it alone. But what home business should you choose?
Just over 70 per cent of small to medium enterprises (SMEs) in the UK describe themselves as a family business. Started out by father and son, or husband and wife, at first sight it seems like an ideal solution to finding a great business partner, but working with your nearest and dearest isn’t without its pitfalls.
I wrote in December about my garden makeover project. At that point the garden was just about completed, but the “home gym” was still very much a work in progress. I think there are quite a few of the family (certainly both children and even me at times) who believed that we would never get ourselves together and finish this. But it is finally done.
Willpower is something that we all need and seems to be lacking at this time of year. Two weeks into January and the resolutions are starting to crumble. The first cold days have come and suddenly that urge to go running or go to the gym is not as strong as it was last week. Comfort food is calling, and some of the old bad habits can start to sneak back in, just for a day at first, and then…..
So here we are at January blues time – not even a week back to work, and already the media are trying to convince us that January is the most depressing time of the year.

People start businesses for different reasons. Some do it because they have been able to spot a gap in a market for a product or service that they’re both passionate about and able to provide, others because they have the drive and determination to start their own company and to make it successful, while other businesses are started because people just want to be their own bosses.
Are you leading the life you want to, or do you feel as though you are just going through the motions each day? You go to work to provide for your family, you come home and spend time with your kids and yet you feel as though something is missing.
You may be surprised to know that thousands of people feel the same way. They love their families but just can’t put a finger on what it is that is missing.
To really feel as though you are living your life completely you need to feel fulfilled. Feeling fulfilled leaves you with a sense of pride and accomplishment. You are satisfied each and every day and it shows in your actions and your thoughts.
