Pregnancy: Not for sissies

I knew from the first time I met my gynae that the risk of miscarriage during the first trimester is high. I just never thought I would be the 1 in 3. Nevertheless, I shrugged it off and, after a little bit of time, that little blue and white stick showed the message we wanted…

Have you met the Panic Monster?

Procrastinate? I do. I wait, wait, wait (not sitting still, but not prioritising very well), and then PANIC. If you’ve ever done that, even once, you need to watch this. Watch it, meet the Panic Monster, the Distraction Monkey, and learn how to put them to sleep. Ready to change your life? Go on then…

Not the Clinton you usually hear from

In September, Hubspot hosted their annual Inbound conference. It’s a little far from home, so I had to catch the action online. Of all the talks, and there were many great ones, this was by far the best. It wasn’t about marketing, really. It wasn’t about digital media. It wasn’t about content, either. It was…

Confidently Working

As seen in this post by Mindy Kaling on Glamour.com – We do a thing in America, which is to label people “workaholics” and tell them that work is ruining their lives. It’s such a widespread opinion that it seems like the premise to every indie movie is “Workaholic mom comes home to find that…

This is what it is

This is what it is

A lot of what I don’t like about blogging is the overwhelming flood of imagery representing crisp, clean apartments – desks in particular – the gorgeous, cute outfits, the flawless skin, and the overwhelming sense that things are, for the lack of a better word, fabulous. Sure, there are mom blogs that talk about the…

How To: Get to work looking human

I’ve been writing this post for a while. It was meant to be the best guide to getting to work looking human that there ever was. A glorious guide for everyone needing to get up-and-at-’em quickly, but still look sort of decent. Until I got to work last week and was asked if I had…

9:15 – 4:55

There is an overwhelming influx of bare-minimum workers in the workplace. Are you one of them? Are you a clock watcher? Are you looking for any way to become insta-famous, quickly, in lieu of hard work? It got me thinking about two separate things that, increasingly, seem to be linked: work ethic and the effects of social…

Not so-NB

This morning, following the realisation that our sound system will not fit in our new lounge, debate ensued. Do we get wireless speakers? They’re quite pricey, but so cool, and sound is so important. I mean, there’s no point to TV, or music, or even life itself with out a decent sound system… right? It…

My name is Robyn and I’m a workaholic

To be frank, I’m not. I just really enjoy what I do, and what I do never shuts off. So I never shut off. Things I have heard recently, on repeat: “Don’t take it so seriously, it’s only work” “You need to learn to switch off” “It’s official, you’re a workaholic” I’ve also been laughed…
