But You're Just A Mum

'But you don't work, you're just a mum'

Sound familiar? Let me just tell about some of the jobs I have had:

Conference Coordinator:
Organising the annual Social Science Conference for a University. This involved logo/image design, marketing, deciding on key themes to be addressed, finding, persuading and coordinating professors/lecturers from across the UK to come and speak for a nominal fee on their field of expertise.

Things I wish I'd been taught at school

Assume everyone will love me.

Now I am not saying for a second that I think that wherever I go people will love me. But there is a great deal to be said for learning this one single social skill of assuming that whoever you will meet and speak to, you will naturally get on. I think the technically correct terminology for this is 'assume rapport' and it is a really powerful tool for going into new situations such as meetings or interviews or even parent/toddler groups with confidence. I always struggle with the advice that you should try and picture people naked when you have to give a talk or do an interview - I mean what the heck is that about? Why would I want to have that image in my head? So so much easier just to assume that the situation will be easy and relaxed; you will be a success and that you are an instantly likable person. I find that when you truly start acting like you believe this, it will actually start to become a reality.

I'm excited! Today has arrived. The kids are off school, the hubby is off work, the housework is on hold and an estimated 2 billion people will be pressing the pause button on their lives to watch history in the making as our very own Willy chops and Kate Middleton get married.

Now I have always had a slight affinity with Will as he was born on the same day as me - which I know sounds slightly ridiculous as every 365th person shares the same birthday. But I remember as a four year old that this royal baby had been born on MY birthday - and so I felt ever so slightly special. So there we are - Willy and I are on 'special mates' terms and as such I kind of feel like today my little brother is getting married.

Conformity (and Pink Pancakes)

Is it just me and my slightly rebellious spirit - or are there are a lot of illogical rules 'out there' that people seem to follow mindlessly like conforming robots.

A Frazzled Yummy Mummy

Parenting can turn you from super-sizzling career woman to frazzled but yummy mummy. I'm not entirely sure at which point the transformation takes place. I think it might just be a change in the way the brain works that occurs at conception and becomes increasingly obvious once your precious bundle of joy arrives.
