I often have moments, flash backs of something that happened years ago or what I thought the future would be like. I’m lucky that I married someone I was at school with (although we weren’t loves young dream, we got together when we were 26) and have lots of friends from my school days and 20s meaning that some days, life is just one big reminiscence. I wonder what the younger me would have thought about my life now? Here are some things I would share if I had the chance to go back:

You will never join the Mummy Brigade
The thought of NCT groups and sitting around in coffee shops discussing babies/schedules/in-laws/schools etc, filled me with dread. I do not, for a second, regret not doing NCT. I may have 2 children but I don’t feel like a ‘Mummy’. Some days my clothes come dangerously close to the London Yummy Mummy circuit but then I remember they’re either hand me downs or have holes in.
