Can you believe it, first day back at work after over two years and my little boy has a fever! So I've booked an extra day of childcare for this important day and I'm thinking about whether to take a sickie or not! Yeah, not a good look. Fortunately, I have a wonderful husband who ended up staying at home for the day instead and I'm sure this is just the first of many days where we pay for childcare but don't use it.
Mind you, it was gorgeous, when our son waved goodbye to me saying, "Mummy go to work. Matt Matt stay at home with my Daddy."
As for work? It was lovely to see old faces and have everyone welcome me back with such enthusiasm. Totally exhausting, trying to catch up on new systems and get the old brain into gear, but good none the less. Another good point? Perhaps my hands will get softer again since I don't have to wash my hands a million times a day every time I touch something or have a cup of tea... all the little things count :-)
