I started a new job this month, first time in work for just over five years. I’ve spent so long looking after the little ones, it’s time I went back to work. Bob has started year 1 and has been very settled all the way through.
I’ll be doing a mixture of shifts so I can still do the school run and homework sessions. And of course some nights I can still tuck my girls into bed at night, if I’m working I like to take a sneaky peek at them sleeping.
I’ve done a few weeks already at work and my word do I ache, in places I never know could ache. My current biggest ache is in my left shoulder, plenty of hot baths do work wonders. Also I’m on my feet all day long, so my legs and feet ache, as long as I put them up at home I’m doing OK.
In the first week of working I bashed into a table and have the biggest bruise ever (which I still have) it was so painful I could hardly sleep on that side. I’ve cut my finger on something, no idea what it was and needed a plaster.
I’ve met some really nice people and can chat to them as part of my job, but it is hard work, harder than other parts of the place I work. I’ve also met so extremely rude people, it doesn’t take much to be polite even when an honest mistake has been made and apologised for (even given item free to make up for it).
my lovely bruise, isn’t big (this was after two weeks).
