No longer a DINKY, not a SAHM, maybe a MWOTHAJTTKIAT (mum working outside the home and just trying to keep it all together). I have three small kids, one tall husband, one office job. Love cake, coffee, wine & shoes. But I'm not shallow I promise. I'm passionate about finding ways to continue working without taking more from my children - working smarter rather than longer, and looking for ways for working mothers to support one another.

How do you run from a monster? Will I be able to get to the cinema early enough to get a good seat for Harry Potter? What’s the deal with Feminism? What’s the best way to spend a Sunday afternoon?

The Meaning of Life will have to wait until I figure out how to rearrange the theme…. Welcome to my world!
It’s funny how one brand new sparkly moment triggers a domino effect of memories.

I also love to travel and read. I’ll be the first to admit that I have a great love for Twitter, and YouTube, as well as audio-editing, Social Media Marketing and PR.
I'm a Year Creative Multimedia student in LIT Tipperary. When not studying or working (I'm a typist and a part-time radio presenter), I like to avoid doing housework by travelling to nice places, drinking coffee, and taking photos.
