When you make a life change, as I have, it is important to have a plan on how you are going to succeed in this. The first thing I did was look at the goals I was going to set myself.

Having struggled with a pram, I got out and asked if she would like a hand.

Re-evaluating goals is important to all professionals. As some of you may have noticed, I have been missing for a few days. The reason was simple I was knackered. We have had a couple of hectic days and I wanted to chill on the sofa with a good book, rather than write. All writers need to chill and attend to their own needs sometimes. It is good to recharge your batteries. Over time I realised my goals have changed.
