Maternity Leave Guilt

I was hoping to be able to talk about maternity leave guilt on local radio recently but the irony was that I had to work. I had a client meeting I couldn't miss to duck off to furtively call a live natter about one of my favourite subjects (being a working mum). It...

Hello! I’m Vicki, a working mum from Brighton in the UK. I am married to a wonderful man and we have a little girl who is 2 years old and since I went back to work when she was just 9 months old, I have been wanted to write about our day to day life because it’s hard, yet amazing, but HARD yet very, very awesome – plus I used to write a travel blog but we don’t get much of that action anymore so need to brain dump my musings somewhere!

My Breakfast Showdown with a Toddler
