This one is my favourite, I love the typewriter book plate that I purchased from Broadway last week. The photo was taken before I went to London with the school back in May to see Matilda, which by the way was fantastic. I felt that I needed to document my working life before having Charlotte and that I gave up my career to have her, which was the best decision of my life, and I don't regret it one bit. Whilst writing the journalling it made me realise that maybe I would like to go back to work (part time - I would still want to be around for Charlotte) and that it would be a shame to let all that experience and knowledge go to waste. This will soon be possible as Les will be retiring in September. The only drawback is that I've had nearly 8 years off and my confidence levels are pretty low (lets face it you don't need much confidence as a stay at home mum!). Also who would take me on, 8 years is a long time and the way the econmic climate is would anyone take the risk in employing me. Lots to think about - but one things for sure I don't want to be a dinner lady for the rest of my days, some of my colleagues have been doing the same job for over 20 years, I just can't see myself being there that long. Not that there is anything wrong with being a dinner lady, I work with a lovely bunch of ladies who are all very kind and a real laugh and they help to keep me sane.
Right I'd better run, thanks for listening to me moan on.
