Have you ever observed your single, child-less friends? From a brief glance, you’ll notice they splurge happily on the latest trends; they can often be found working out at the gym or stretching at a weekly Pilates class; and they have time to relax over a glass of Chablis with colleagues. Delve deeper and you’ll find painfully high stilettos, a fabulous little black dress and matching lacy underwear all ready for that just-in-case, last minute night out with the girls.
Contrast this with your life. As a busy mum, you’re no doubt wearing Marks & Spencer’s safest...

Some days I swear I'll change my name,
Never wanting to hear that word "mum" again.
Mum, can you do this? Mum, can you play?
A word I hear hundreds of times every day.
Whilst taking a bath or even sat on the loo,
Mum, can I come in, can teddy come too?
Mum, I am hungry,. Mum, if you please
and other riveting questions like these.
Mum is the chef, the cleaner, the friend,
Mum is the "baddy" in games of pretend.
Mum's there for a cuddle whenever you weep.
Mum reads you stories...
Dealing with negative people is always an arduous task. Being around someone who is extremely negative can be physically and emotionally draining, no matter how positive you try to be. When exhaustion sets in, it is easy to allow their pessimistic and depressing mood to take hold of you too – but there are ways to avoid falling into this trap!

If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.
If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.
If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.
If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.

Listening to conversations and working with clients, it is clear that when times get tough, people divide into one of two types. One rises to the challenges of the times ahead and adapts accordingly. The other backs down and withdraws from the uncertainty they face.
The choice facing us all is simple: you buy into the paranoia and the media’s...
Tracey Wall,, finds helping others is the perfect way to live a wonderful life. Tracey lives in Cheshire with her husband and five year old daughter.
During a holiday on the west coast of Wales, I realised my life was not the perfect picture I envisaged it would. From the outside, everything seemed wonderful. I had a caring husband and a beautiful daughter who both loved me very much. Not only that, but I had a highly successful career working in management in the finance sector. With the support of my family and friends close by, life really couldn’t get much better.
