Being reflective….

There has definitely been lots of pondering as summer draws to it’s end.

First up we have our blog carnival founder, the marvellous Helen Lindop  who considers whether  it’s true that women can never  have it all and whether equality in the work place has yet arrived! Tracey Jane shares her thoughts from her Support 4women blog about Moving on. Gillian at Expand your thinking blog is also feeling reflective and asks Doesn’t everyone have their tipping point? I certainly did – the day my son smiled at me that was it for me and &71/2 years later my days as a stay at home mum are ending. Here I am writing to say a big THANK YOU in my post this month.

My lovely life coach friend Grace Marshsall always asks good questions and her post this month reflects on Balance and Sanity- is it possible?  Grace I wonder this frequently!  Sally from the Lime mag speaks out in her blog about Special needs and isolation and reflects on her journey to launching her magazine.

Veena from VIP pregnancy reflects on the recent riots that have shaken us all and talks about her experiences of Being a single mum in relation to this. Definately makes you think. I think the riots have made us all reflect and hold our little ones very close.

Some brilliant business tips are being shared….
