hie ho, hie ho…

So this is kind of funny.

I was going to blog tonight about working mothers… the part time question… the child care question… but I'm still working. 

(It's 10.45pm, I worked all day today, picked the kids up, gave them dinner, got them showered, stories read and into bed, sat and ate pizza and drank a glass of wine with Ad and our friend Charlie, and now am back working. I love it. That's the problem. Please tune in for this tomorrow.)

Meanwhile here's a photo of one of my favourite dogs in the world, Amy, who my darling friend Catriona belongs to. (No, I didn't get that muddled up.)


Mothers of young children who love their jobs and are trying to work as well as mother. 

A dog's breakfast?

See you tomorrow!

i’ve been doing it for so long now – and on my own- that i am sitting here thinking ‘ oh it’s not so bad’ but then i know no different!

but then i am not one for housework- that was the first thing to go…

one thing i have found helps with the guilt , i mean balance, is to try and leave early one or two days a week and grab the boys and take them to the park for a while before starting the whole dinner, bath, bed routine.
i get a lot out of that.

That is one good dog. I freely admit I am not a dog person, but I am an AMY person. I can’t even think about how old she is and how much longer she has left for this world, it makes me too sad.

Your “you might also like” seems to be turning up some interesting posts that I have previously not read. Always love a good dog pic.
