I worked as Human Resources Specialist, Warehouse Manager and in my last field as a full time job in Supply Chain Management. When my youngest was born and we moved closer to my parents I knew that none of the jobs mentioned above was possible.

    The latest about this single married mother

    Summer is here for sure now. Most days we have around 30 degrees and at lunch time when the sun is at its hottest we hide behind the curtains with the air conditioning on. This is when I wish their dad was still here. He is way more entertaining than I am and more full of life. I am so boring these days…I don’t even do that much crafting with the girls anymore. I was getting there a couple of months ago just after my gallbladder operation. I think I was slightly happier than usual and was even starting to look after myself – regular trips to the salon for…

  • Parenting Pin-It Party #128

    Halloween is at the end of this week so I bet that you are all preparing in some way or another for it. Although I didn’t “celebrate” as such before I had the girls I am now preparing for two Halloween parties for the end of the week.

    Parenting Pin-It Party #119

    We are slowly approaching cooler days and although it makes me feel sad that the summer is almost finished I am looking forward to the autumn days. I was born in the autumn and it’s my favourite seasons of all. For me is when the start of new beginnings – a new school year, a year older for me and my husband. This week I am hosting the #pinitparty and have to say I am looking forward to see all your crafts and autumny posts. It was Helen’s turn to host but she is still on holiday. “Waves! Have fun lovely!” Out of last weeks entries I decided that my favourite…
