Chilled out is maybe not a word that people would automatically use to describe me, but I am definitely working on it.  Consider it a 2011 project.  When you start taking some time out for yourself – which is a necessity for a mother, not a luxury, then you start to realise how good it is for the soul.  And you also realise that every still gets done.  The world doesn’t come to an end.

I read some really good tips on a blog carnival a while ago for working mums – things like invest in a slow cooker and I can’t remember what else, it’s making me very un-chilled out trying to find the website link.

Anyway, the picture is of my lovely mum.  She has always worked hard, run a home, brought up children, let those children come running home a few times, stood them up, brushed them off.  And I don’t think I’ve ever heard her raise her voice.  Not that I can remember anyway!
