I've been incommunicado for the last little while but I've just finished the first 6 weeks in my new job. It's been a colourful few weeks.....we've weathered scarlet fever (Little B), a horrible cold (me), working out the best hours for me to work (who knew it would be early starts and early finishes??), hiccups at school and Mr B travelling overseas for work for 3 of those 6 weeks. But we've soldiered through and made our way through the puzzles.
have to say that I love my new job. I'm lucky enough to work with a
dedicated bunch of people who are passionate about what they do...in
this case working with prenatal, postnatal, paediatric and youth mental
health. I work as a PA and the work has been interesting and flowed
beautifully. So far the biggest juggle has been my home life and I have
an even greater respect for my mum who raised my brother and I while
working full time. She was a great role model and hilariously I find
myself turning to her tricks of managing a household 25 years later. And
I only work part time (30 hours per week)!!
getting back out into the "real world" of work has also been a total
eye opener (which I hope to post in the next few weeks).....things to do
with food, waste, community....things that have challenged me
personally and made me think about carbon footprints and being the
change you want to see in the world.
I still find the home juggle tiring...fingers crossed
though that I can get back to blogging!! I have to say I admire working
mummy bloggers...how do you find the energy at the end of the day???
