Has becoming a mum made you more bitchy? 

Today I had a fight with a girlfriend and I am unsure whether or not I was too hard on her. When I was younger, I used to let things go easily.

How To Be An Organized Working Mum

It’s not easy being organized when you aren’t working from home, especially when you’re a mum. Since going back to work, I’m finding that a lot of my house chores are falling behind!
