Lunchtime survival for the conscientious working mum

June 23, 2015

Mums out there who have recently returned to work after maternity leave will join me in remembering the good ol’ days of maternity lunch.

3 Little Buttons Blog

It’s my ‘do-something-day’ and as I have been pottering away doing my ‘something’s’ I stumbled across this. My magic button from the not-so-distant past, and sure enough, still tucked away in my iPad notes I found a little something I wrote on my first day of receiving it.     Woohoo! I whooped, as I brandished my new shiny London Underground ‘Baby On Board’ badge…
