  • Mother Daughter - a special bond
    Mums and daughters have a special bond, it's a girl thing!
    But like any relationship it takes an investment of time.Sharing words of wisdom, caring for each other as only women can and experiencing life together with the many emotions and 'first's'.
    Here's some of my favourite quotes:
    “A daughter is a mother's gender partner, her closest ally in the family confederacy, an extension of her self. And mothers are their daughters' role model, their biological and emotional road map, the arbiter of all their relationships.” ― Victoria Secunda

  • Becoming a host with Look After Me
    What to do, once you’ve withdrawn from the daily duty of putting bread on the table? Have you ever wondered about turning your home into your business?
    A wonderful Robert Palmer song sums it up in the opening line; “the fight to make ends meet keep a man on his feet”
    Despite our moaning about the traffic when we were obliged to travel to the office every day - maybe now we miss it! Without the deadlines and obligations which in turn give the drive to get started in the morning; what to do with all that available time? Sure for some there are family demands, clubs or volunteer commitments that help fill the day but those activities take up time and money and give back – let’s say - a non-material return on investment .
