Word of the Day:
EXTRICATE – free from constraint and difficulty

Tip of the Day:
Now earlier I spoke about balance, to a large degree, is about doing your best with what you have rather than yearning after something else moms it can be very difficult so moms this tips are for you …
1. Get Real - Don't fantasise about some idyllic pre-feminist housewife existence. You can't help your kids if you're holding down three jobs to pay the bond on a husbandless house.
2. Negotiate - Try to work half-days. Demand flexitime. Insist on a compromise. And don't tell me that following this advice will compel employers to discriminate against women; I've seen how much work gets done by men during test cricket and rugby matches.
3. Use your resources - Don't use technology to punish yourself with higher standards; use it so you can be in two places at one time.
4. Multitask - Ironing isn't too bad if The Kumars at No 42 is on TV, and I haven't burnt anything... yet. And if you clean the house really, really fast, it counts as an aerobic workout and you don't have to pay gym fees.
5. Rope in your spouse and children - Realise that husbands, children and significant others frequently have no idea what is required of them unless you spell it out in excruciating detail.
Quote of the Day:
Richard Dumb - Don't follow your dreams; chase them
It’s time for me to love and leave you. You must have oh so super Tuesday. Let’s chat again tomorrow…Much Love…Peace.
