The NHS has been facing ever-increasing pressures in recent years, with slashed budgets, staff shortages and lack of resources taking its toll on the quality of care. One of the many ways we commonly see the impact of these pressures is in waiting times for GP…
The day you’ve dreamed of for years has finally arrived! Your little girl is all grown up and has chosen a partner to start her life with, and you are officially a MoB -- Mother of the Bride! While congratulatory remarks are appropriate at this juncture, so are a few…
This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…

Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I was born in 1960 and had my children in midlife when I was nearly 42 and 45. They are now 4 and 7 years old. I was so profoundly affected by the unique experiences of having children over 40 that I researched and launched flowerpowermom.com and flowerpowermom.com/wordpress to inform, entertain and share the experience of midlife parenting. I also offer over 40 moms a free monthly newsletter with books, news, and what's on.
What is your blogging philosophy?
I believe in writing the raw truth about motherhood over 40 because I feel that--although much is said about conception and pregnancy for older moms--not much is being put out there in the open about what the parenting process is really like when it includes significant life changes such as perimenopause and menopause. At the same time, I'm always in search of my "inner Erma Bombeck".
I have been blogging since...

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
Welcome Fellow Mommie,
I have a total of five kids and working from home is my only choice. I have make raising my family my number one priority. But in addition to spending time bills have to be paid so I work from home. I am a social butterfly but do not have a lot of time.
So when I found Mandura business opportunity it gave me the ability to work form home, start with a small investment of $30, make myself and my family healthier by drinking the product, help other mothers make money from home, and I make money from home. Check out www.mandurawealth.info. Never would I have thought that I could find something that is a true work from home/internet based business and make money to pay my bills. This is a great business to add to your current income portfolio.
