I have been a stay at home mum since my oldest was born 6 years ago next week. Three years after she was born I dove into the world of writing as a Blogger and Published writer. Thus began my working from home, in a very flexi way. Last year (2019) on top of what I was already doing I became a formal working mum from home, like a salary at the end of the month kind of space. I have a 20 hour job, that requires me to go in for 3 hours once a week for staff meetings. Rest of the time I work from home as I also mother my two youngest and pick/drop my oldest to/from school (before COVID-19). I also teach at the same time – run Integrated Living classes as well as speak in various forums.
Thanks to COVID-19 many working mums – both full time and part-time have found themselves at home. Doing full time care work and formal work at the same time – or should I more honestly say EXCPECTED to do full time mothering and formal work at the same time.
So how do you do it? How do you make it through each day without going wacko?
Here are 3 hacks that have worked for me and are still working.
