Some days I feel like I’m absolutely smashing being a Mum and other days I feel so overwhelmed I want to hide in a corner and hope it’s all gone away when I emerge. Sound familiar? Being a parent is hard, there are just so many things to think about; school admin, washing, what’s for dinner, your job. Ever feel like you’ve got so much to do that you don’t know where to start so you don’t and then kick yourself for it later? Me too. If I happen to be having a high anxiety day aswell then I can…

Social media is awash with organisation, cleaning and routine content at the moment. It’s fashionable to have your clothes rolled instead of folded, it’s cool to name your cleaning products and you are living your best life if you manage to get your hands on the last Zoflora bottle in the shop.
