Are you a freelance mum? And would you like to share 'how you make it work' with The Early Hour readers? I'm launching a new series called.... drum roll..... THE FREELANCE MUM. And I'm looking for women to feature. So if you're interested, or know another freelance mum who might be, leave a comment about what work you do (want to keep it varied) and I'll send a DM shortly. Chars!
