With a term break just around the corner there is so much to look forward to.  Lazy mornings with no plans to rush for.  Long bike rides through nature reserves, cake baking afternoons and of course, a reprieve from lunch box packing.

I’m not sure I was born to be a Mother.   I mean I love being a mother, I love my children and of course, I love being part of a family.  I’m just not sure it’s the job I was born to do.  Actually, maybe it’s not the mothering part…perhaps it’s what comes along with it. It’s not fun to be…
