I read another depressing article in the Daily Mail Online about how women ‘can’t have it all’ when it comes to career and motherhood. I find this kind of article the worst, probably worse than seeing the streams of airbrushed models strewn across the pages of glossy magazines, beacaue I know that is unrealistic…I am old enough and wise enough to know what ‘real’ women’s bodies look like, but there is nothing more crushing, or more negative to portray, than telling women they simply can’t ‘have it all’.

Weddings can be expensive. Only recently I saw a blog from a bride-to-be in distress who'd been up all night decorating invitations by hand in an attempt to save money. Her mission, to stick to a wedding budget of under £5,000.
