Back in May I blogged about how I was looking forward to return to work - it is now the reality. Back in full effect. I am leaving breathing and thinking about the new routine we have in our lives. The summer is a little bit more complex - involving childcare and collecting / dropping of kids all over the place.
And I am enjoying it. I'm enjoying my actual job - it challenging, keeps my brain ticking over, keeps me interesting. I'm enjoying the meetings and the coffee breaks and the lunchtimes. The commute is not too bad. The dropping off kids is ok (if a little stressful) but they are also having fun. They have spent time with friends and family. Little one has really settled into nursery after a bit of rocky start.
I am happy and proud to be a working mummy. Sure at time its difficult and I am racked with guilt as my children are left without for the day. But they are being cared for, looked after and generally made a fuss of for the times they are out of my care.
Its fun being a working mummy. I really enjoy it. Im sure if the job was not enjoyable or the commute hard or the people not nice it would change my view of things. Right now I am happy playing my role, doing what needs to be done and keeping everything ticking over in my head.
I feel a little guilty at times. but mostly I am happy, the boys are happy - that's what counts - right?
