Working Life 2016 was born out of a desire to make a major life change. My children were born in 2014 and 2016, and when my second daughter arrived I felt an overwhelming pressure to leave my job in HR Management. I started to establish a career in writing, and have been fortunate to write for for The Guardian, The Motherload, the Same journal and various other websites.

I have felt grateful that I have the opportunity to do this whilst spending most of the week with my girls, before they enter the education system. It has been a pleasure to document the highs and lows of writing and motherhood here.
