I have always been one of those annoying people who likes to be organised, that is probably why I chose a career as a Legal Secretary/Admin Assistant (pre children). Being productive however can be tricky especially since my children started school. During the early days when I had a toddler and newborn we spent our days going off plan, routine…

So Ready…

It feels like the children have been home for years but at the same time I cannot believe how quickly the summer holidays have whizzed by. We have crammed a lot into the last 6 weeks, August hasn’t been the best month weather wise but we made the most of it with days out, lazy mornings, late nights, being busy…
