Why are we putting so much pressure on ourselves?

Why are we putting so much pressure on ourselves?

I’m freshly jobless and have been in a somewhat pensive mood over the last few days. In a strange way, having more free time has made me reflect more on the way we use our time and the sheer amount of pressure us mums (and dads) put on ourselves.

Review: Discovering my ancestry with Living DNA

Review: Discovering my ancestry with Living DNA

Have you ever wondered where you come from? I have always had an intrinsic interest in my family history. I’ve spent hours, days even, scouring genealogy sites. I’ve put together a huge family tree and learnt a lot about my ancestry. Whilst in parts I’ve got back as far as the 13th century, I still have a thirst for knowledge.
