Jam everywhere – Life’s little niggles


Being a stay at home mum can have it moments. It’s great to be able to be there 24/7 for your children, to know that they’re eating properly and they’re happy but let’s face it – sometimes it would be good to know that you’re not the only one who hates finding jam everywhere except the jam jar!

Having young children means that it’s a rare occasion to leave the house having had time to actually choose what you’d like to wear that day, apply your make-up and check yourself in a mirror. When you have a busy life it’s the little things that can mount up and ruin your day. Instead of bottling everything up you’ll be glad to know that Triumph are encouraging the UK’s women to get online and get things off their chests!
