Rant of a working mum

I am totally missing in action and it annoys the hell out of me!  Now according to The Free Dictionary the definition of rant is, “To express at length a complaint or negative opinion“. So here I go. I am soooooooo busy.  Work seems to be coming out of my ears.  I cannot recall the last time…

Beer cracking time

I cracked a beer at 12 noon today.  Did I mention I was in charge of my 2&1/2 year old?  Rest assured I did not give her one!  But as for me, it is Melbourne, I am on my last week of holiday, and the mercury is at 36.1 ºC.  I feel like a reckless Uni student, having…

I have to inspire twice this month

I had every good intention to squeak in my on-going changing inspiration for each month, in August.  But alas time altogether got away from me. The joy of being a full-time working mum to a toddler when it is crazy busy at work.  However I am going to do my utmost to hit the mark…

And I missed May too!

Slippage, just like April!  So a blog goal of two for June.  Here is the first. “You are confined only by the walls you build yourself” I love this.  How often do we hold ourselves back from doing what we really want to? Often thinking that all is out of our control.  Or we can’t…

Missing in action

How do all you Mums and Moms keep up your blogs?  I have returned to work three days a week, and have been back for the last two months, while Dad is currently home full time.  But since going back to work time seems to have vanished in some science fiction fashion.  The four days…

A day late and a dollar short…

Well more like 90 days late! But I always believe better late than never, particularly in this case. Our multicoloured life nominated me for an Very Inspiring Blogger award. I’m always blown away when someone thinks I’m doing ok. Now the rules of accepting the Very Inspiring Blogger Award are: Display the award logo on your…

What’s in a name?

I have decided to rename my blog.  I spent an age at the start trying to think of a clever and catchy blog title for which I could also get the matching email address, hence why this blog has been entitled womaximum.  And even then the email address needed a 1 in it! As someone…

Tick tock, stop the clock

Well the clock is ticking down very fast now; in 27 days I will be back at work.  Hand on heart I do not want to be there.  It is funny, I came into motherhood thinking that the early part of having a child was something to get through, dirty nappies and not much else.…
