Our Blog

Each week, our wonderful team of bloggers share with us their experience of balance their careers alongside busy home lives. The following are particularly relevant to the current circumstances of the pandemic in the UK.

Dolly's blog: London baby. And it goes a little something like this… After 15 months marooned in a scenic but achingly dull corner of rural Wiltshire (devoid of non-supermarket retail, decent coffee and anything that could sensibly be described as a restaurant) I am back!  LONDON BABY! 

Sonya's blog: Friends at two metersMy son started school in September 2020.  Whilst it was in the midst of global pandemic it felt completely natural and my son adapted extremely well.  There was the understandable anxiousness of any parent of whether he will settle in, whether he will make friends, and how he would adapt to attend school every day as opposed to a couple of days a week at nursery.

Ally's blog: How did we do that? This week my employer sent out a fairly lengthy questionnaire to everyone in the firm to ask us about how we thought we might want to work once the pandemic restrictions are no longer in place. It’s an interesting question - given a blank page, how would I want my work life set up to be?
