My corner office 👩🏼‍💻 not as fancy as it sounds when you're actually just squeezing yourself & and a couple of machines into the corner of your bedroom in the hope that you can work and not wake your children. Night shift is about to commence ✂️ ◼️

“Although it comes with it’s own set of difficulties, being freelance is the only way I can juggle my responsibilities to my son… But I should not be amongst the privileged few. All mothers who want to work should be able to work to provide for their families, themselves and their future.”
.
O. M. ACTUAL. GEE. This new bit of #DIFTK writing from the hugely talented photographer @pennywincer is EXACTLY why I started this project in the first place and is exactly why I continue to keep it going. You’ve got to read it. Just read it. Read it NOW. Link in bio.
.
Penny is a melbourne-born (now south east London dwelling) interiors and lifestyle photographer and mum of two kids — one autistic and one not. And, in my humble opinion, could very easily setup a side hustle as a writer. Penny you are BRILLIANT. Please give her a 🙌 and a follow.
.
As usual, would love to open up the conversation on this one and hear from any of us who have / are juggling similar challenges. Has freelancing allowed you to work while caring for your kids? Would love to hear about your experiences in the comments.

As a happy accident I continued on my marble theme yesterday as I was fortunate enough to need to go to Seven Sisters tube and was able to check out the amazing hand made tiles by Matthew Raw @mattrawworksinclay and @assembleofficial. Truly stunning work, I particularly love the curved tiles, such craftsmanship & beauty ◼️

Spice up your kitchen cupboards by substituting dried herbs and spices for essential oils.
.
Essential oils give a more intense flavour and are fresher to use use in your cooking than their dried counterparts.
.
These oils are powerful, a tiny bit goes a long way. Start off with just a tiny bit of oil on the top of a toothpick stirred into sauces and dressings. .

This one goes out to the risk takers. To those stepping up, stepping out, stepping into the UN. FUCKING. KNOWN. To anyone whacking-it-on-their-credit-card and hoping someone will buy it, to anyone booking that extra day of childcare even though the work isn’t there yet, to anyone (possibly literally #pelvicfloorissues) peeing their pants and doing it anyway — good things are coming your way people. Just hold on. #DIFTK #riskybusiness

I'm more than a little bit enamoured with marbling, particularly vintage marble patterns like this one, if I found this in velvet I would possibly loose my mind (and then cover myself in it) 😍 ◼️

Taking full advantage of my mum visiting from Aus & have stopped by my new fave cafe without the boys for a quick coffee and to plan my final fabric selection for the first range. Such a luxury to sit in a cafe and enjoy the experience rather than worry about who will spill what first! ☕️📓 ◼️

The boys are finally in bed and I'm about to get working for the evening. Pretty excited to have a play around with this machine (it's been sitting unopened in a box under my kitchen table for over a month) I just hope that the excitement doesn't lead to frustration at figuring it all out 🙃◼️

Many moons ago when I was in high school, I dreamt of studying at the London College of Fashion. Being in Australia, and growing up in a working class family, I knew it was probably not going to happen. So instead I went to the local fashion college & studied full time for 3 years where I met great people & learnt tonnes about the fashion industry, particularly the practical stuff, which I loved. I've been reflecting on the last 12 month (thanks to @guiltymothersclub) and realised that last year, despite it being pretty rubbish in lots of ways, I actually also achieved a lot, including making my ancient dream of studying at UAL : London College of Fashion, a reality 💪🏻 Also, the second pic is my outfit from that day which I accidentally captured walking up the stairs. PS I promise I'm much happier about this situation than I look! ☺️◼️

I’ve been HEAVILY hinting about this for what feels like forever, but it is time people. IT. IS. TIME. The #DIFTK Shop is GO! *shits pants*
.
Yep. I’ve designed some stuff that I, ME, would like to own and that I’m hoping some of YOU might like to own too. The crux of the shop is a REWARD CHART (complete with freelance parent achievement stickers!) for us adults to whack on our office walls to help us recognise all of our amazing achievements in lieu of actual colleagues and managers and appraisals. Because shiny stickers and massive carrots aren’t just for toddlers people! I really, REALLY hope you like it. 🤞
.
Link to the shop is in my bio and all of the stuff is available for pre-order at the minute. The plan is to get any orders out to you by mid-Feb LATEST.
.
And I want to make it SUPER clear that all things #DIFTK won’t be changing here one bit. There’ll be the usual rants, moans and 🙌👊👌💪 99% of the time, just with the odd post pointing people to the shop. If you’re not interested in it — ignore. Simples. Try to see it as the odd sponsored post, except that post is sponsored by… me?! #crossesfingersandtoes #sofuckingscaredrightnow

Hello DIFTK-ers!

I have been follwing Frankie's @diftk for quite some time on here and Facebook.  Today there was a suggestion that people could get some new Insta-spiration by checking out some different profiles. 
As quite a few new people have followed I thought I would just say "Hi" and introduce myself.  I have been freelancing part-time for 2 years now after working for 12 years in various corporate marketing & sales roles.  My focus is very much on supporting SoHo and small businesses with their marketing efforts, whether that be copy-writing, digital marketing or specific campaign execution.  I look forward to getting to know about your businesses over the coming days!

Christmas debt. Tax bill. Not one but TWO regular gigs no longer mine. It’s very much a case of new year, new overwhelm. I’ll just be over here, comfort eating a headless chocolate santa in my loungewear. #newyearnewWOT #theonlywayisUP

The girls go back to school & nursery tomorrow and it’s time to break the holiday habits that have crept in. It can be hard to get going again... I’ve re-joined Slimming World and am doing couch to 5k but after one final festive shindig with friends last night, I’ve had to have a word with myself this morning to make sure I get up and out the door to my yoga class. I’m determined to keep moving this year and not spend long periods of time at my desk. The beauty of freelance life is that I should be in control of all of this. The Fitbit is back on my wrist though so I can’t kid myself anymore!

Oh haaaaiiiii there stranger!!!! 👋 How are we?! What's going doooown?
.
Right. Let's kick of 2018 as we mean to go on shall we with a KICK ASS CELEBRATORY post for @michaela_writer who the randompicker.com gods selected as #patonthebackclub winner for 2017. 📣🎉💃🍾👌 WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP. Here’s what she said about her year...
.
“SO needed to read this post tonight! In a bit of a mood and need to pull myself out of it and join the #PatOnTheBackClub as I’ve achieved a LOT this year and deserve a break! I’ve left my job, moved cities from my beloved Bristol to Leicester to be closer to family, retrained to be a #DigitalMum and got my first freelance client before I even graduated.”
.
When you work on your own and you’re knackered from life/kids — particularly at the end of the year — it’s so. damn. easy. to completely fail to recognise all that you’ve achieved; to only dwell on the negatives. Well Michaela, take it from us: you are doing an utterly BRILLIANT job. Please DM me your address so I can get a little care package out in the post to you to let you know, that as far as we’re concerned, you are #DIFTK Employee of the YEAR. 👊
.
Everybody else — FUCK ME WHAT A YEAR YOU’VE HAD. It was a genuinely amazing to read through all your comments here on IG and over in the Facebook group. The stuff you are achieving, off your own backs, in these snippets of time between play dates and school pickups, is just incredible. Keep up the good work!

Oooooooh YES. We’re doing things a little differently this month. Granted it’s only the 19th and all sorts of wonderful stuff could happen in the next 14 days but come with me people… Let’s see this year out RIGHT by celebrating all of our 2017 achievements (no matter how big or teeny tiny small) so that we can ALL give each other a big, phat, virtual pat on the back. I wanna see those 🙌 out in full. force.
.
For me, seeing this little community of ours grow has been my biggest achievement this year. THANK YOU to all of you for sticking around and making it what it is. Worrying about my tax bill on my own is just depressing, worrying about my tax bill with you lot around is... less depressing. 🤣😉
.
As per usual, anyone that participates will have their name thrown into a ‘hat’, someone will then be selected at random and sent a little something special in the old snail-mail to let them know that — as far as we’re concerned — they are #DIFTK EMPLOYEE OF THE FUCKING YEAR 💥. I’ll also give them a virtual shout-out here. This is also open to members of the #DIFTK Facebook group FYI, so anyone that comments there will also be thrown into that aforementioned hat.
.
Gladiators – you will go on my FIRST whistle. #DIFTK — you will go on my SECOND whistle. Toooooooooot 📣

Dear Clients, I know the office Christmas party was last Wednesday, and that Margaret in procurement only works part-time, and that the go-to ending for emails at the moment is “let’s catch-up in the new year”. But us self-employed parents are still going, still trucking, still reaching for the credit card to buy that shiny new hunk of plastic our kid’s so deeply require ahead of the ‘big day’. So, if you could just sign off this project and get that invoice pushed through this side of Christmas, you'd really take the stress out of the next couple of weeks and actually make our YEAR. 💃🙌🎉 Thank you and happy Holidays. Frankie T, On behalf of the #DIFTK crew.

A lot of love for this man.  He’s held the fort while I have a big project on.  The number of set backs I’ve had has been ridiculous, (computer crashes, illness, power cuts, etc).... I haven’t left the house in a week, except to take broken car to garage 😳. Argh!
Anyway, it’s nearly there, and he’s still here, and the baby is not only alive, but loving having spent these last few weeks with his Daddy.  Definite bonus for us both being freelance is that we can take turns on the parenting as suits. Fewf.  I cannot wait to spend Christmas with these two.
Thank you @willoshaw 💛

Anyway, it’s nearly there, and he’s still here, and the baby is not only alive, but loving having spent these last few weeks with his Daddy. Definite bonus for us both being freelance is that we can take turns on the parenting as suits. Fewf. I cannot wait to spend Christmas with these two. Thank you @willoshaw 💛 . . . . #love  #family  #diftk  #daddy  #work  #freelance  #snowday  #boys  #breastfeeding  #motherhood  #workingmom  #deadlines  #parenting  #christmas  #holiday  #ineedaholiday  #dontforgetdads  #equalparenting  #1yearold  #toddler  #fiancee  #snowday  #winter

I know we’ve been pretty darn quiet on here recently - we’ve had a MASSIVE run of illnesses and the kids have needed to be the priority; after all, we’re doing this FOR the kids not INSTEAD of them - but we’re delighted to announce we’ll be back THIS SATURDAY @komedia_bath for #familyxmasfest hosted by the wonderful @kin_bath. It’s £2 per child (adults are free) and includes this amazing face painting in the price! There’s loads of other fun for the children as well as local stalls helping you get your present list all wrapped up for Christmas. It’s a total win-win! #familyxmasfest #kin_bath #komedia #familyfestival #facepainting #fashpack #christmasshopping #diftk #organickidsclothing #orkidsorganics

While time is TIGHT these days — NO, friend-without-kids, I can’t come out for a leisurely brunch, DO YOU NOT KNOW IT’S A NURSERY DAY?! — having my son has given me a real kick up the arse when it comes to getting. shit. done.
.
And I don’t know if it’s because we’re approaching the end of the year, or because @mutha.hood was talking about it in her stories today, or because I’ve had a bit of a breather with work this week, but I’m really appreciating quite how far I’ve come in the past two years; how much easier it is for me to get work done during those pockets of time; how I’m learning to switch my creative brain on and off; to accept that producing SOMETHING is better than NOTHING.
.
And it feels damn good. #thingsareontheup #canyoutell

These awesome ladies! 😍

Our team works remotely but once a month we get together in person. Usually we spend it workshopping our latest challenges, or thinking about how to improve our working practices and make sure remote flexible working is working for both us and for Happity. But today we gave ourselves a treat and went ice skating together instead. 😬
.
It felt pretty decadent doing something fun just for ourselves during school hours, but god was it worth it!! The ice rink outside Tower of London is a new one, but it was a super scenic location and a good size too. Highly recommended. 😄
.
(PS - the reason we are standing that close together is because we're clinging on to the side for dear life!)

MORNING! I thought maybe it was time for a selfie to introduce myself to any new followers (and I've just had my annual haircut so... 🙈). I'm Saskia, I'm a mum to two little boys and a copywriter, editor, and online content creator for business owners in the kids/family sector. If you're ready to drive more parents to your website and convert them into customers, give me a shout! 😀👋🙌

Well well well...what can I say about last night? It was BLOOMIN’ WONDERFUL is what I’ll say. Frankie, our fearless leader of the brilliant @doingitforthekids_ community hosted her first getogether, where us DIFTKers  united, many of us for the first time. That’s right, we jumped out the squares and actually got to say hello and talk. It felt like a giant blind date, BUT after a few minutes of chatting you felt like you were talking to friends you’ve known for years. We covered all subjects, fitted in between laughs and hugs 😝
•
Frankie - what you have created here is fabulous, you know this, deep beneath your modesty and loveliness, it is fabulous. Last night showed that for sure. We’ve got your back...always, we’re your Avengers 😉
•
Lovely to meet my fellow DIFTKers - Claudette @motheringfunday , Cori @corijavid , Rose @freelancers_cookbook, Juliette @juliettetoop , Hannah @hvraymondstudio , Amanda @thekindredcreatives , Nicky @nickyraby , Dahlia @entreprenursery , Kate @small_and_wild_company , Holly @hollyjunesmith, Camilla @the_village_hall , Lucinda @nurturingmums - I’m sure I’ve forgotten people (I’m so sorry). You were all so lovely. I wish we could’ve talked all night. 💕

Until next time.....

A shout-out to the #diftk crew who, right about now, are probably all getting into their Christmas jumpers or 'jeans and a nice top' combos. I am really sad that I can't make it to London tonight to meet up with fellow #freelancers - a heady mix of illness, work and general lack of funds mean I can't join in with the festivities. I was going to wait until after bedtime to have my drink, but it's been such a crap few days, I've had it already! So I hope @frankiet and pals raise a glass to the lost souls, and I shall raise my cup of tea and commiseratory gingerbread man right back atcha. Have a FAB time! #sadface

After shooting all week it's Saturday with the smalls.  Have a good one peeps.  Shout out to all the single parents trying to both enjoy the weekend and do all the things.

Clearly, this child is overwhelmed by the beautiful height chart mural @fritsyreagan and I made at my local health post. I hope this becomes a visual reminder to the community, a child’s diet influences their height and stunted growth can be prevented. Thanks for the idea @funkyrach89 and @ncc09200

Until literally Y.E.S.T.E.R.D.A.Y. I was the sort of person that didn’t have insurance for their phone. It was an expense I could never. quite. justify. and, if I’m totally honest with myself, thought was all a bit of a con. As long as I didn’t smash the thing, it would be fine right? RIGHT? 😂😭
.
But if the past couple of months have taught me anything it’s that things smash. They smash HARD. And I need to prepared for shit going wrong whether I like it or not. So, I finally bit the bullet. I am now the proud owner of a shiny new insurance policy for all my work-related gadgets outside the flat and, crucially, Professional Indemnity insurance for my work. This, alongside the life insurance we already decided we had to have after the kid was born.
.
Maybe I’m just getting old, maybe it’s the recent shit show that has been life, or maybe having kids just makes that sense of responsibility all the more real. Either way, seeing the little confirmation screen that read “your business is now protected” resulted in an audible sigh of relief. Relief from stress that, until that moment, I didn’t even know I was carrying...! Anyway, I’ll be sucking up that £18 a month for the foreseeable. Begrudgingly for the insurance, but gladly for the reassurance.
.
And as @familyrule summed it up so succinctly  in a message yesterday - "What the fuck was I thinking not having sorted it for so long?" 👍 My. Thoughts. Precisely.

Anyone else needing this reminder as they start the week? Coughs, colds, and a baby sleep regression in this house mean I'm feeling behind on life. Must breathe and remember this! 💛💛💛💛

Let’s gloss over the fact that last month’s #patonthebackclub didn’t occur at all shall we 🤤🙈 and just meld the last two months together? SHIMPLES.
.
So, September AND October. Hit me with it. How was it for you? I want to see your achievements over the past couple of months below (no matter how big or teeny tiny small) so that we can ALL give each other a big, phat, virtual pat on the back. Let those celebratory emojis riiiiiiip. We all know how much joy they can bring to a colleague-less, knackered, self-employed parent.
.
As per usual, anyone that participates will have their name thrown into a ‘hat’, someone will then be selected at random and sent just a little something in the old snail-mail to let them know that — as far as we’re concerned — they are #DIFTK Employee of The Month. I’ll also give them a virtual shout-out here. This is also open to members of the #DIFTK Facebook group FYI, so anyone that comments there will also be thrown into that aforementioned hat.

Pukka. Let’s DO this. 🙌

Or perhaps I should have titled this ‘juggle’. My first experience of working from home as a freelance social media manager during half term. I've nearly made it to the end of the week. As hard as it's been to remember to switch off from work at times, it has been a brilliant reminder of why I started down the path of being my own boss. Days spent enjoying time with the children and evenings burning the midnight oil. Exhausting but worth it!

I'm looking for examples of brands that have been commercially successful thanks to their Instagram strategy. I'm specifically interested in brands that target parents and/or health & well-being brands. Are there any you think I should definitely include?

The concept of VAB or Vård av Barn is quite extraordinary to people living outside of Sweden. Being paid to look after your sick kids (essentially) and your employer being compensated, too. It’s by no means a perfect system but it makes up part of the backbone to a seriously family friendly, work/life balance. No stigma about calling in to work cause the kids are sick or pressure from your employer for not being “productive”. Compared to the, sometimes, incompatible work/family life/strife in places like the UK. Will I ever not be in awe of the *semi-sorted way the system supports families in Sweden #flexappeal #flexibleworking #DIFTK #lifeinSweden *I acknowledge MASSIVE flaws in the system, too. But, compared to most evolved govts in Europe, Sweden’s idea of social welfare is pretty advanced. We’ll be talking all things VAB on the podcast tonight...penny for your thoughts? Ok, maybe a Gummi bear instead. 🐾
