Hello to all my lovely readers,
It is the beginning of the Easter holidays and the children have just broken up for two weeks. Like most working mums, I am unable to take all the school holidays off work so I am compromising by working 2 days this week and 3 next week.
Work / life balance is a constant battle that I am faced with every single day. I know that I am not alone with this dilemma.
Listen to my Life in Colour podcast below, with friend Hollie, where we discuss the life of working mums.
It is really difficult to get the balance right. I have always worked and I love my job in publishing, which is why the boundaries have become blurred.
The other thing to consider is finding time for ME! My life is mostly consumed by work and being a Mum and again I think many of you will be able to relate. I have written blogs in the past about what I do to break away from the stresses and strains of life. I definitely use running and Zumba as forms of escape. I also get a lot of enjoyment out of blogging and the conversations it sparks.
In sum, I have no regrets about being a working mum. It is a hard balance, some weeks I get it right and some weeks I don’t. I feel it is important to work in order to pay the bills, but also to teach our children that if you work hard you can also play hard.
Enjoy the Easter Hols,
