I am about to dip my feet back into the world of part-time work and I am nervously excited. It’s not too many hours as I still have three children at home (my eldest starts school next term), but it’s a regular commitment. I have been freelance writing ever since leaving my job as a newspaper reporter, just prior to the birth of my first child, so it’s not like it will be a huge shock. And I have an amazingly supportive husband. It will be a juggle, but I’m all for change and growth and new challenges. Never say no to new opportunities, is my motto. Mostly, I am so chuffed to be asked – it’s come completely out of the blue and has given my ego a little boost. And ego boosts are good for the soul.
So, it looks like I’ll need to get that new desk after all and set myself up in a special spot in the house. Watch this space and I’ll let you know what it is next week. Yay to the new start!
Have you got any tips for returning back to work?
Ps: I’ve blogged over The Hoopla today about reality tv show Wife Swap, come say hi if you get a moment.
