Now the kids are back at School, I am finally getting myself back into some form of routine and it feels really good. In just three days I’ve managed to get a crap load of jobs done and hopefully come this time next week when E starts her ‘morning’ School routine I might just find a little time to myself.
Despite E being out of the house for only two hours each afternoon I still miss her terribly and it doesn’t matter how many people tell me that she’s settled and safe, I cannot help but to worry. Our little Princess is no longer a pre-schooler, she is now a fully fledged four-year old with attitude and shiny, patent school shoes to boot!
Little Miss Tude
Kids grow so quickly, how on earth did I let four years slip through my fingers so sodding quickly? I would do it all again in a heartbeat but as we aren’t planning the pitter patter of any further feet in this household I’ll have to make do with the memories.
I’ve managed to swap a few shifts around at work so that I can spend the time that I do have with my children actually with my children rather than behind a bar. That’s the beauty of part-time work I guess, it may pay peanuts but I rather enjoy it and for the time being it seems to suit our circumstances.
It’s a funny old World, until I was made redundant years back I valued my career far more than its true worth. It was only after having children that I realised what was truly important. No matter what the pay scale, no matter how stressful or important a job is said to be, I will always value my family far more than any career choice.
Swings and Roundabouts.
Hopefully now that I have all this time to myself each day I may be able to modify my CV and with a little luck attain a more financially suitable role which fits in with our family routine. I can only dream right?!
Either way, there is no job which could ever be better than that of being a parent. Watching my kids laugh, learn, love and live is the most rewarding, satisfying and heart-warming job I could have ever asked for.
