So this week I went back to work. How do I feel? Ok(ish).
I went back on Monday, and it certainly felt like I had never left but in some respects it was like I was a newbie again. Socially I feel becoming a Mum has certainly changed things, your not invited to gatherings, people seem like they don't know what to say to you, its like you've become a different person to them. When in fact, your the same person who likes a good night out and a gossip - Maybe its me that's changed? I have been out of the loop for seven long months.
Its been lovely to see friendly faces and so it has been nice, but feel I have a long way to go before I re-establish myself.
The work was the same as before, that certainly hasn't changed. I work in a school and I really love my job, but it doesn't come without its challenges. Wednesday was a horrible day, horrible lessons with students who are most certainly ready for there Christmas holiday. That day I cried alot. BUT I felt so much better for doing it, I spoke to fellow colleges who knew how I felt and it put me at ease that this was perfectly normal to wobble every now and then.
On Wednesday it was a big day for Darcie she had a trial at her nursery which Jamie went to, apparently it went really well and Darcie thoroughly enjoyed it.
Thursday, was an even bigger challenge for Darcie. Being left on her own at Nursery for a couple of hours. How did she find it? Again she was fine. She painted me and Jamie some pictures and had some lunch too. My little Star.
This last picture is of a hat
Jamie Darcie made for me at one of her weekly groups. So Cute.
I owe so much to Jamie, he is mainly looking after her whilst I am work and he is doing a grand job!
Well just tomorrow to get through (Which also happens to be the "end of the world") and then two weeks off for Christmas.
