Flex Appeal - My Story

Flex Appeal - My Story

Mother Pukka has recently launched  Flex Appeal. A ‘crusade’ to challenge the status quo on the current limited flexibility open to parents.

5..4..3..2..1..Blast Off

We’ve passed the first week. It’s a little bit like that first week after having a baby. You think you know what’s coming.  You’ve planned and prepared. You’ve listened to stories. You think you’ve got it covered. In reality, much a like a tiny crying baby no amount of planning can prepare you for it.    Some super brilliant things happened. Firstly, we sold hats!! Yippee. Secondly, we became part of the Rattle Baby Disco with our first stall and thirdly we got asked to be part of Dot to Dot on the 19th and 20th June. Oh and in amongst that...
