Talking TalkMum

May 8, 2013

TalkMumI’ve been meaning to write for a while about what I’m now doing work-wise, and for various teeth and sleep related reasons I’ve not quite got round to it just yet. I will soon, but in a nutshell I officially finished maternity leave at the start of the year and have been freelancing part-time since January.

One of the things I’m working on at the moment that I absolutely love is a community management role editing TalkMum is a collaborative blog set up by the people behind the Pregnacare range of vitamins, designed to talk all about issues around trying for a baby, pregnancy, and being a new mum (so, pretty much right up my street then…) It involves working with some fantastic writers, including Fran, Rachel, Kiran, Eleanor, Nat, Marissa, Fozia, Anna and Cath.

The new theme for May launched today – it’s birthdays, milestones and memories, and you can read lots more from previous months in the February, March and April round-up posts.

(And if you’re reading this and would like to know more about getting involved with writing, or want to write a guest post, just drop me a line).

On the nursery side, thank you for all the lovely helpful comments about Eliza settling in, it seems like so long ago! She now absolutely loves it and will even bring me her shoes and bag on the morning of her nursery days. The best part of any working day though is always the really long hug when I pick her up, and seeing how animated she is, with crazy hair, covered in food, and babbling away on the journey home.

Photos: big thanks to the TalkMum bloggers in March.

    I’d love to find some work that I could do from home and around the boys. That’s the holy grail when you’re a mum, isn’t it? I don’t want to go back to work but I do want to work. Just have to find that special something to spark my brain back in to life.
