A Squiffy History of how it became to be :)

A Squiffy History of how it became to be: 🎁🎈🎊🎉A bit of motivational spiel on the run up to my 5th year in business birthday 🎁🎈🎊🎉 *fires a massive confetti cannon*  This blog was actually supposed to be published yesterday, but, being a ‘work-from-home-housewife’ my little boy was ill at nursery so I had to swoop in and take him to the doctors then spend all afternoon wiping tears away and watching Peppa Pig episodes back to back. Anyway, as you were Jess…… ;)  Once upon a time, whilst being barked instructions at by someone no more qualifed nor experienced than myself, a thought manifested in...

#SquiffyMum : Interviews with Two Mum Bosses

In this weeks blog I have interviewed (rather DM’d some questions!) to two lovely ladies who run their own businesses whilst bringing up the small people (I don’t mean vertically challenged, I mean kids) to give an insight and different views on how they juggle and cope with kids and biz. I am always interested to see what ‘life hacks’ people come up with when they are raising a fam against the constant pull of a business, plus I am super nosey and its always good to hear the experiences of someone in the same boat. The first lass up is an old...
