Help my wish came true (no it's not "Please change the Frubes ad")

New life... not just a song by Depeche Mode

(And now that's my earworm.) I've been off-blog for what seems like weeks now. Reason? I'm being made redundant from my job of 12 years. Time to start anew. Time to follow my dream (teaching).

Time to change my blog from Humdrum Mum to Benefit Mum? Scrimper Mum?


I need a change in blog tactic - or do I? Help!
