New Year resolutions... Are they for you?
Last week was a really tough week. One of those weeks when you think I just can’t do this anymore. The purpose of WoMo Network isn’t to say you can ‘have it all’ and it is all easy, it is to find a shared resource so that whether you are having a good week or a bad week, you have somewhere to find support.
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.
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...
