The Diaries - Where is Love?

Tonight I sang one of my old fav's from Oliver Twist, "Where is Love" to the boys as they fell asleep. I have always (as one would) associated this song with an orphan boy looking for his real mother. But now that we are looking into Adoption it made me think while the words where coming out of my mouth. What about the child who is looking for love? Who's circumstances don't permit it? Where is that love?

Where is Love?
Does it fall from skies above?
Is it underneath the willow tree
That I've been dreaming of?

Where is she?
Who I close my eyes to see?
Will I ever know the sweet "hello" 
That's meant for only me?

Who can say where she may hide?
Must I travel far and wide?
'Til I am beside the someone who
I can mean something to.
Where is love?

The Diaries - The begining

The beginning of a mum is quite easy to mark, the beginning of a mumtreprenuer? Mmm not so sure, it starts somewhere between feeding children, changing nappies, looking back at your past job and looking forward to the future.

There are moments, when you think, "if only I had this" or "this would work much better if it looked like that" and the next thing you know you have your idea, you manage to find a bit of time, and so you business begins.

For others, there is this creativeness that just seems to switch on once you have kids? I am not sure what the magic is behind it, but I love it! And when you channel that creativeness into your passion, you have the start of something exciting!

So this is the story of one mumtreprenuer, the ups and downs, the fun and drama! A diary full of life and inspiration for those just starting out, and a good laugh for those more "experainced" in this field.
