Returning back to work...

You may, or may not have noticed the blog and social media platforms have been very quiet the past few months. The reason? S has started school and therefore I threw myself back into work. I struggled to find any part time work when I started looking in the summer months ready for a September start so I made the leap and tried full time. Monday to Friday, nine to five.


Its now been two months and I've decided full time isn't for me. The guilt of having nothing to do with school, no communication apart from a few words in a book and how tired the girls are after a day in breakfast club, school and then after school is just too much. After dinner there is then no chance of getting the girls to sit down and do homework, and weekends I see in my head for days out to make up for the time we've lost after school. This can not continue.

Petit Bateau Clothes Review

The latest review is not a normal type of review for us. This is a clothing review. Eek! If anyone knows me personally they know I love basic clothes; a good pair of jeans, comfy trainers, casual tee and a comfy hoody. No names, no big budgets and no latest fashion. Then Petit Bateau got in touch. They offered us the chance to try out some of their autumn/winter clothes. With the budget we decided to kit J out with a new outfit or two, then S can get the use out of the clothes eventually too. (Yes I am a tight mummy!). Out of the large range on the website I picked a pair of jeans. Jeans are a wardrobe essential, and not cheap when you buy decent jeans that will last the test of children and time, we where then left with enough budget to choose two tops. I fell in love with one, and J chose the other.
She loved trying them on, feeling like a model. However posing for outfit shots was not her strongest point. Probably didn't help that I chose to snap away whilst her friends played nearby. Here is one of her pose's. (She is not going to like me in 5 years time, Teehee!).
