Yesterday I returned to work after being off/unemployed since December 13th. I can honestly say the feeling of dread that hung over me since receiving the phone call last week was like a dark heavy cloud of gloom. Don’t get me wrong, I realise that in these recessionary times I am very lucky to have a job. I appreciate the fact that my hours fit in with my children’s schedule and that I need only work part time to make ends meet.

The thing is I am employed on a part time casual basis and m bills are not! I am being to tire of receiving a phone call on Monday and being expected to be in work on Friday armed with a lesson plan and any necessary resources. 

The environment I work is quite challenging and equally as rewarding when things go well. However, there is no real support network and it often feels like I am working in a vacuum. 

So it was with a heavy heart that got out of bed yesterday and began my morning routine. Until this little fella joined me in the kitchen that is!

This is my gorgeous 10 year old and he has the most beautiful sunny disposition you could wish for in a child. It is very rare that he starts the day without a smile on his beautiful face. He arrives into the kitchen each morning with a sleepy bed head and a huge smile and sings and jokes his way through the morning. His sister isn’t always as pleased with his jolliness! 

Day 3 down……97 to go! Stay happy!! 🙂

Pull up a chair and have a browse while you're here. All the best, Karen
