About a month ago (see review of April 2018), one of my friend showed me her bullet journal. I had heard of them and had seen a few ads on Facebook but I had never seen one in real life. She told me that she started hers because she was always doing 100 things at the same time and was doing a bad job of keeping track, thus becoming notoriously unreliable.

May has flow by !
It’s been a difficult month, mostly because work has taken over my life. We did have a lot of nice moments throughout the month and overall, I think it will remain a productive month at home and work.

He left on Friday morning when I was at work and returned on Monday night after bedtime : I therefore had to care for the girls on my own for 4 consecutive bath and bedtimes, 3 mornings and 2 full days.

This week has been one of the most challenging in my career so far.
After an intense series of strategy meetings, I received some pretty comprehensive feedback from my boss.
That feedback was not positive and it was not on a point of detail.Read More »
Since I became a mother, the urge to protect the planet and be a more responsible consumer has grown much stronger. I really want to do my best to protect the environment and reduce our carbon footprint. I also want to do my best to keep my family away from harsh chemicals and pesticides. Yet, sometimes, it seems so out of reach. Not that I am trying to find excuses, but a lot of environment-friendly options are time-consuming and as a Mum, time is scarce…Read More »
