Since Olive started school full time in October, I’ve been working more of a full time basis during the week. I have been trying to get myself into a routine for my 9:30-2:30 hours BUT I must admit more days doesn’t always equal greater productivity. I’m becoming more and more skilled at the art of procrastination! BUT what I do have over those working from an office is I have great flexibility.

I totally can I just need to go back to my schedule later in the day when the children are in bed. Flexible working promotes well being.
