HELP... I need a nanny...

I can't believe it's been over three weeks since I wrote in my blog. Things have been so busy that I didn't even get to make time to blog.

A new season for me meant having my own business.
Yes, I already was an AVON representative but becoming an AVON Business Developer is something totally different. There's much more work involved: a lot of admin ,a lot of driving to meet reps and deliver orders and books to the reps and a lot of training, recruiting and searching for ways to grow my business.(since it's the only income I'll be having for now)
It's exciting but can be so consuming at the same time.
I'm still trying to figure out if this is really something for me.
Yes, ir does give me the opportunity to be home while working.
I can do my admin work with one child on my lap. I can take a short break just to change a nappy or make a bottle.
But on the other hand your home and work are all mixed up. You can't leave your work at the office and then come home to focus only on your kids like you do with a normal job. It's like you have your work with you all the time.
Even though I'm planning days off on which I don't work or do as less as possible. Somehow it stays on your mind sometimes.

And ofcourse there's even less time for house work and then there are times that I have to deal with deadlines and the kids have to wait.
So the truth is I can't do it all by myself.
I need a mommy helper, a nanny , a house keeper. Someone to mainly do the house work but also mind the kids when I have to work or at least help with one of them. Someone who can play with them and give them some love and attention when I can't for a little bit of time in a day.

I love searching on internet. If you search well and long enough you will normally find the answer or the information that you are looking for.
So lately I've spent a lot of time surfing and reading on the internet.
Especially for my current 'job' to find tips etc. And I've been searching for a nanny.

It's a strange idea and in a way I wish I didn't have to but I'm grateful that I don't have to work fulltime and put the children in a creche or with a childminder. Maybe one day hubby will earn so much that I won't have to work....We'll see.

But we also want to buy a house one day and so for now I 'm planning to seriously make an effort to get as much as I can out of my role as an Avon Business Developer and with the grace of God, I believe that I will be succesful.

I've found a website online and found a woman we are interested in.
I hope all goes well and that we can come to an agreement.

Then we have to get her room ready and get the girls room done and then I've got myself a mommy helper.


That will be such a relief, because it's hard not to get stressed nowadays.

So wish me luck.

Do you work from home ? Do you have paid or unpaid help ?

I'd love to hear about your experiences.

I still love writing so I'm going to try to squeeze in time to write on here regularly.

Have a great Sunday.

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.

Mummy, I need your 'pookie'

It’s World Breastfeeding Week from August 1st to August 7th 2013 and this year’s theme is Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers. You can read more about it on The focus is on community support, particularly in the form of peer-to-peer support.
To show support for World Breastfeeding Week, the Irish Parenting Bloggers group is holding a blog march about varied breastfeeding experiences, including experiences with breastfeeding support in Ireland. This inspired me to write a post about breastfeeding as well.

My breast feeding journey
When I was pregnant with my first child, I decided that it would be a great idea to combine breast- and bottle feeding. But in the hospital they convinced me how healthy and important it was to breastfeed exclusively and then I decided to go that road. I got a breast pump to express milk so my baby could get a bottle with breast milk when I was out and about or for the scarce times that I would leave her in the care of h…
