I have been doing the school run for a couple of months now and with a baby in tow too have had my fair shares of running out of the door, running into school, running pack with his lunch box. We’ve all been there right? Since going from doing the school run 2 days a week to every day I have had to sort myself out a routine otherwise I think the stress levels were about to send me a funny shade of purple.

I have to say using chemical free… View Post
