Hello there, thanks for stopping by 🙂
My name is Clare and welcome to my blog. Almost three and a half years ago my husband and I were blessed with a fantastic little boy, who for the purpose of this blog is referred to as Monkey. He really is the light of our lives. I am also a career girl, always have been ever since I graduated with a BA honours degree in Business and a major in Marketing. I really do enjoy my job and I am in love with motherhood. Financially I was always going to go back to work, so the question I have been asking myself ever since is it possible to have both?
Determined to reach the right balance between the two its been an interesting ride to date, sometimes its not as even as it should be, and there are days when I don’t feel as though I do either role particularly well. However I am getting better at not beating myself up about the odd mistake and accept that everything is a learning curve and that parenthood is the most wonderful journey of all.
The purpose of this blog is to share some of the activities that Monkey and I get up to. The intention is that the majority of these can be replicated quickly and simply when time is short, or when you are juggling the pressures of everyday life and need a quick fix of sanity, or if you are a career mum like me you can still satisfy that urge to create.
I hope you find some ideas that will give you more quality time with your little ‘monkeys’. I am also currently pregnant, with baby number two due in May 2016. We have not had an easy journey with this second pregnancy since I have bee diagnosed with Antiphospholipid Syndrome or Sticky Blood. I am now considered high risk and we have had several set backs over the last couple of years. This has lead me to start to expand to writing about my experiences under the Pregnancy Category. I hope that if you are going through something similar or suffered with multiple miscarriages too you will draw some comfort from my writing.
