Sunday Soundtrack 1: Eargasms

We’ve had some beautiful weather in the UK recently. As all British people will agree, when the sun shines, we make the most of that precious molten heat. So this weekend I’ve taken a step back from work, closed the laptop and spent some time outside with the kids.

That small piece of time out has been a wonderful thing. It’s freeing, like shaking off chains and stepping into a world that’s bright, vibrant and full of life. It got me thinking about the activities I do away from the web, which leads me to the topic of music.

Reflections Of A Working Mother

Reflections of A Working Mother

As a female working full-time while my partner takes care of our children, I often feel as if I have something to prove. In our home the traditional roles are reversed to the point where I’m the bread-winner, the hunter-gatherer. I pay the bills and keep a roof over our heads while he does the school runs and keeps the… Read More
