The perfect bag for working mamas

I have two jobs; being a mum to my three trouble-makers and being a blogger. As I type this, Wills is asleep next to me and the girls are in their ballet class – prepping for their show in a few weeks time. Every Tuesday I use this time to catch up with emails, write first drafts of posts, and …
