Over the last 6 months, its been really playing on my mind on how bored I am, especially as both of my sons are now at school full time. My major concern is not having appropriate child care in the summer holidays, also deep down I have felt a little scared, I don't want to fail my family or a future employer.
Out of the blue, I had a message from friend, someone I used to work with. They need someone to help, however it is only a temporary position. I knew I could do the assignment with my eyes closed, so I jumped at the chance. The best part is I can work from home.
Last week, I went to the corporate offices at London Bridge for a couple of days training. It felt really nice to be welcomed by so many lovely people, training went very well. I took to the work like a duck to water. This last week I have been working full-time from home, its been great. I wouldn't say its been easy, working from home has meant I have had to prove to myself to be disciplined, not too many tea breaks and having to keep myself focused. I have a my little office set-up in my frontroom, looking out onto my street, Absolute radio has been keeping me entertained in the back ground.
My body has had to get used to sitting down for hours at a time but apart from that it is going very well. I am really pleased this is a start in the right direction, that I had wanted, actually what I needed. I hope to find something more permanent when my assignment finishes. Most of all it is nice to feel useful and get paid too.
Also, I have to give 110% kudos to full time working parents that keep their blogs upto date... Working in full time employment. It is really difficult to work, run a home and write a blog at the same time. My sons only went back to school on Friday, I haven't found time to keep up with my blog, I've been too knackered to write, its been impossible. So massive respect too the parents bloggers that do!
