Mother of 3, opted out (or shall we say sort of pushed out) of the workplace when 1st child was born and have been trying to keep on top of my life since: managing the household, caring for my children, trying to raise them with good values and by good example, as well as managing 2 house renovations in the meantime.
I have had rotten pregnancies (which resulted in 2 wonderful children), followed by postnatal depression, been plagued by a knee injury and am seriously overweight and under-motivated.
I am on the brink of changing that:
