Work Wise


Back to work today. It went very well. Sheena's Nan made it very easy, because she came to look after Sheena at our house. My boss made it easy too, because I am working part time (15 hrs a week) - but I can choose to work from home, or in the office, AND I can work when it suits. I am very lucky, and I don't take it for granted - not many employers are that good. As best I can, I will try to keep it pretty structured and work specific days, so that I have a good separation between work and home-life.

I wasn't very enthusiastic before I left for the office, but once I was there, it felt great to be in my own space. Work was good, and I came home completely refreshed. It has been 8 months since I had more than 3 hours away from Sheena.

Sheena was excellent with her bottles, and she also had good naps, so her Nan wasn't too exhausted by the end of the day. This is a photo of Sheena and her Nan when she was 1 day old.

The best thing of all about today, was that there were absolutely no dramas to speak of. It doesn't make for the most interesting blog post, but I enjoyed it immensely.

How wonderful it is to have such a flexible schedule. I am sure you were ready to hold Sheena as soon as you arrived home.

Glad to hear the first day back went smoothly! You are lucky you work for someone who can allow you to be flexible with your work hours! I'm sure that helps a lot!

Your Sheena is such a doll! So glad that you have such a great job with flexible hours - that makes it so much easier to be a working mum :)
