Well, another weekend over...not that it matters at the moment, all the days of the week merge into one on maternity leave and the weeks flow by quite freely. This would be fantastic were it not for the fact that August will be here before I know it and I'll have to get my ass back to work. How on earth will I be able to leave my baby and who would I leave him with? Perhaps I should start researching into childcare but I'm living in denial that I will ever have to leave him at all. Darn that pesky lottery....about time my numbers came up.
It's been quite a busy weekend as we're putting the house up for sale and the estate agents are coming to take photographs today. The house is, (almost), sparkling but as well as negotiating a very eager husky and an 11 week old baby, (12 weeks tomorrow...woohoo), I will have to move various things around that we couldn't live without whilst he takes pictures.....this should be interesting. The husky is moulting big time too so I hope the gentleman doesn't arrive in his bestest suit trousers or else he'll be leaving with an additional white hairy patterning on them!
Back to the issue of childcare, is it really financially viable to return to work these days? I mean, I'd be spending so much on childcare that I'll be working for a third of my wages if I go back full time....it doesn't make sense to me.
I'd be very interested to know your story about returning to work, or not. Any regrets?
The sun is shining like mad outside and it would be criminal to stay indoors today. I need some milk anyways so off to the shops I trot or I'll miss out on my 20-a-day brew habit!
