Hi. I’m Melissa (Mopie) – a pretty normal mum of two (Casper 5 and Jemima 3). Wife of Tom and adorer of 2 cats (Bungo & Bobble). I also have a start up.
Having spent most of my career in the City, the inevitable time came when young children and a full time job started to rub uncomfortably against each other. So in 2016 I packed in the City job and decided to set up a company of my own.
The idea for SpareMyTime was born during an evening with friends lamenting how terrible we all were at getting anything done at home, in fact we didn’t even know where to start. We all were in the same position – time strapped home dwellers with small children and no idea. Now, a year and a bit later, SpareMyTime is a reality – you can search, book and pay a host of lovely local smaller service providers via the website with the knowledge that we’d happily use them in our own home; we have 4000 followers on instagram and are about to launch our new mobile site in September.
The blog is our next adventure and I hope it will be helpful resource to all of us who live life on the run. Somewhere reliable to head when you’re looking for a useful guide or inspiration. Please keep in touch and let us know how we’re getting on or what you’d find helpful and we’ll be sure to include it.
