Starting my new career

I was meant to blog yesterday about my painting workshop on Saturday, but I haven't even had a chance to download photos yet. So will soon.

Today was my first day at work. Well techinically I've been at work for the past 3 years or so - playing housewife is work, but you just don't get paid for it. Terence keeps saying I just finished my 3 year holiday, but no, I don't agree. Being a housewife is simply not the same as being on holiday - well if it was, where are the palm trees and my suntan? So I should rather say today was the start of my new career. Oh yes, that sounds much better :-).

Anyway, I was meant to be there at 10am (tomorrow will be the normal time of 8:30) and so we still wanted to try and fit in with our normal routine and so by 7:24 we had both kids dropped off and we came back home and wow, it felt so weird sitting and waiting for 9:30 to arrive so I could leave for work.

My day was good. I have quite a few new things to learn and pick up as they are quite a specialised business and they have very specific processes I will need to follow. Of course impatient me just wants to get to the point where it is all very familiar and I won't need to rely on somebody to get things done, but hopefully it won't be too long. I do think I will enjoy it a lot and everybody that I work with seems really nice (even the two people I haven't met yet, but chatted on the email today).

So here goes - my brand new adventure!

All the best for the career change! A change is as good as a holiday, so perhaps now it will feel a bit like a vacation??? :-)

Why is it that men think being at home with the kids is a holiday???
All the best for your new job.
