Hello everyone, how are you doing?
As a business mum myself I don’t find the summer holidays easy. How about you? It is 6 am as I am putting this together and actually that is pretty normal working hour for m at the moment. The kids are off school , I work form home don’t/want and can’t afford child care so I do my work around the children. At 5 and 8 they don’t nap but during ‘screen time’ I work, before they get up and after they have gone to bed. It’s not easy but I love that I get time with them. I’m tired but happy! I ‘ll kick start this carnival by sharing My top ten tips for business mums in the school holidays
Hope you’re doing okay! Let’s see what’s going on in the business world’s of you mums this month…..
