I am starting this blog today as an outlet for my observations, frustrations, ramblings and joys of being a working mother.
I have two wonderful children, boy-child is 10 and girl-child is 8. I love them very, very much. I have a supportive husband, without whom I could not function. We also have au-pair#4, a lovely German girl who lives with us, but more about that later.
I have a full-time job. I have always worked full-time, apart from maternity leave and one year sabbatical some years ago. I love my work and I am good at it. I make a difference. I make no apologies for working, without that activity I would go insane.
But, it's not easy. Sometimes it is very, very difficult. So, to vent some of my frustrations, I have started this blog. Even if I am just talking to myself, at least it's an outlet.
