My 90 Day Goals April to June

If you caught-up with my last post about my 90 day goals, you’ll know that I feel strongly about checking-in with myself, reviewing where I’m up to and re-setting my goals if necessary. As we’re over 3 months into the year and I’m about to embark on some sort of “maternity leave”, I thought there’s no better time to reassess my goals for the next 90 days, April to June.

Now, I’ve got quite a large life event happening in this quarter…I’m having baby number 2! Eek! And this time, I’m self-employed, with no formal maternity leave and so will be working-out how to be a working mum, grow a small business and also have some quality time with my children. Not a lot then?!

Juggling being a Mum, Blogger and Business Owner – Can you have it all?

This isn’t something I’ve really written about before, yet being sat here, first week back at work, with my daughter enjoying an extra day in nursery (and me being wracked with guilt for the first two hours of the day) and a growing baby bump, I thought it seemed a fitting time to reflect. I’m a Mum, Blogger and Business Owner and I’m not quite sure when that all happened…

5 Tips to Help Feel Motivated

Need some help to feel motivated? We’ve all been there! Whether it’s in life, work, weightloss or anything else, we all have moments where we feel like we’re sinking and we lose motivation!

As you may be aware if you follow my instagram or twitter, I’ve been away with our daughter for nearly a month, in Italy. We are lucky to have family retired there who are more than happy to have us for lengthy visits each summer. It means we can have a holiday, but also just live out there, work remotely and have support with childcare. It really is a lovely situation and since going freelance and since hubby started his own agency, we try to maximise the flexible-working.

Before the holiday

Before we left in June, I was maxed-out, mentally! Our little one has never slept through the night more than two nights in a row and she’s nearly two, so we’re always sleep deprived. We were six months into a total home renovation (The House Project) and it felt like it was never going to be finished and we were 3 months into selling our old home. That, teamed with running our own businesses and bringing up a toddler, meant that we were both burned-out. Exhausted.
