The weekly round-up is a bit late this week as I had a rather busy week of it last week helping to organise a charity fund-raising event, football presentation night and karaoke all on the same night – it didn’t help that I (stupidly) decided to bake 48 muffins, a quiche, make a trifle and a whole host of other things as well so I’m afraid this post got pushed to the back-burner so my apologies for that!
I hope you have had a good weekend. I enjoyed mine even if it was a little hectic! And I hope Monday has been good to you. Keep an eye out later for another post with some exciting website update news!

For example, with getting ready and travel time a 1 hour meeting may really take 3 hours. This article has some great tips to think about if you’re a chronically late person like me (although I’m getting a lot better, honest!)
This list covers most of the basics you’ll need to hone your time management skills. Whilst there’s nothing massively new here it’s a great list to give you a quick refresher on becoming more productive.
