Where are we? Working, playing, hiring a nanny, and somehow muddling through (thanks to Jim! we’d be a mess otherwise). I’m going to be part time from now until Christmas and we’re feeling very positive about me going back to work – along with slightly overwhelmed.
Last week I was on a field course based on the gorgeous Moray coast – this was probably our most spectacular day although the rain held off for the entire week and it was a great experience. Four nights away from the boys is the longest I’ve ever been away though and it was strange. Strange how quickly you can snap back into pre-kid lifestyle – I wasn’t looking over my shoulder for them all the time like I thought I might. And strange in how present they are in my head, as well as my heart – even the experience I got out of the course was influenced by the fact that I was more motivated because I was making the sacrifice of not seeing them to be there.
