Diary of a WoMo

WoMo fitness: on your bike

WoMo fitness: on your bike

As WoMos I think we will all agree, the one thing you need on a constant basis is energy. Sometimes there are those days when you feel like you are walking through mud. It’s exhausting. Then some days you whizz through every bit of the day with a spring in your step. If you're anything like me, it isn’t sleep dependent either. I can have days where I’m firing on all cylinders on a bad night’s sleep.  Sleep helps of course, but for me, what really makes the difference is exercise.

What do you actually do when you go to work, Mummy?

What do you actually do when you go to work, Mummy?

Over breakfast this morning my middle one pipes up: Mummy, when are we going on holiday?’ I explain we are going in 2 weeks. We are off to North Norfolk for a week. She then continues: 'Are you working until we go?’

I explain that yes, Mummy will be at work every day until we go but then we will have a fabulous time all of us together, and Mummy won’t need to go to work from Norfolk. 

It goes on: 'What do you actually do when you go to work Mummy?’ This is where the hard bit starts...

Meet the 'Delinquent Mothers Club'

Meet the 'Delinquent Mothers Club'

I have a group of girlfriends and we call ourselves the DMC. It stands for Delinquent Mothers Club.

It was named as such after we met at a 40th birthday of a school mum. We’d never met each other before but for reasons we only discovered later, we gravitated towards one another after a few glasses of champagne.

We realised we were the only full time working mothers in the room.
