Today is a big day for so many Mama’s, sending their babies off to big school for the first time. I’m feeling you! We start next Monday and the dread is kicking in. As much as I’m ready for a ‘break’ after the holidays, I’m going to miss having my boy home with me during the week. I hope you’ve got something nice planned to take your mind off it. I’ve got your Monday morning cuppa read sorted anyway…
With our houses returning to an eerie quiet, I thought I’d re-launch an original feature I started way back in 2012 for your mid-morning cuppa read. I love hearing from real Mums about their tips and advice, so I’ve brought back Mummy Monday – and today’s Real Mama is the ever so lovely Rachel from Rachel Bee Jewellery. A fab lady I’ve been ‘social’ with since M was a wee babe, who designs beautiful jewellery and seems to be up at the crack of dawn most mornings creating and making with her gorgeous boy. Who has clearly inherited his Mama’s creative genes. (check out her insta feed)
