Recently I saw an article which said that millennial women were worried about out-earning their partners . It got me thinking.

In fact, I appear to have become some sort of semi-functioning zombie. As mothers, we are all warned about the early… Continue reading Sleep? What’s that?
Wouldn’t it be great if we could go back in time and offer ourselves some insight into what was to come? I have been thinking and reflecting a lot recently, so I decided to write myself a letter filled with the things I wish I had known when I was 17.
