This time last week I made a cryptic reference to stuff that might be happening here in chez Jem – because I know how much people like cryptic posts and don’t find them in the least bit annoying ;)
Well, I think I’m probably OK to spill the beans now… I am returning to work. Proper work. Not in my pyjamas work. (Just kidding, I get dressed every morning. Eventually.) I have been offered the senior web developer position at the marketing agency I used to work for, which includes a pay rise (which I’d like to say would be blown on cheesecake but will be spent on childcare, yay!) a new job title and responsibility of a person. Oooh~
I’ve been thinking about returning to work outside of the home since before Christmas. While financially I’ve had an amazing 18 months or so – which was probably more luck than anything else – I have been slowly losing my mind at the isolation and lack of peer support. In fact if I’m honest, my post in July about missing working outside the home was probably the beginning of the end.
So err, there we go? :) Guess I make a sucky WAHM after all.
