One of the hardest things about being a mum is balancing work, home and parenting. Now just balancing it, but dealing with the guilt that comes with it, no matter what you do. Before Maxi was born I was determined I would go back to work full time we even paid for the months nursery, but then he was born and had a health scare and I changed my mind. We moved 300 miles to make sure that I could be a stay at home mum for the first years of my boys lives, but I understand that isn’t possible for everyone.
Living in the Frozen North of England, trips to London for meetings or events mean that I need to find places that are great for working from, where I can connect. It is one of the reasons that MadDad has been busy researching laptops and that we are going to shop for laptops as an easy way to work on the move. Once you’ve got your equipment you need to find a comfortable and convenient place to work. I try and make all my appointments and meetings on the same day, so often have time in between them as commuting to London for me takes such a long time.
