Back to work…


So I’m back at work tomorrow after maternity leave. As you can see from the photo above, nine month old kindly visited my offices with me a couple of weeks ago and helped me to settle in.

Wish me luck – it’s a mixture of emotions, as is usually the case when experiencing the end of something and beginning of a new era.

We’ll all have a good time. The girls will love it with their excellent childminder, and my brain will thank me for putting it to some more involved use again (which hopefully will mean I won’t accidentally leave the inside light on in the car for two days, walking past it repeatedly and not noticing, thus running my battery completely dead).

Plus, I go back for three days per week, so still have two days (plus weekends) with my girls. Now which will be the hardest work? Discuss!

  1. I remember going back to work after mat leave and I hated it. I think it helps that you’ve got a job you enjoy and a fab childminder you trust. The girls will appreciate you all the more for it. Good luck, stick a tissue up your sleeve and don’t look back xx
