Well, the first week back is over and dealt with - on the whole, nowhere near as painful as I had anticipated! Thanks in large part, I suspect, to the fact that V was still on holidays and "on hand" to deal with daycare drop off/pick up that first day (plus making dinner, doing the groceries etc) bless him. ❤️
I am enjoying being back very much, and my new workplace and colleagues are lovely. I will admit to having a bit of a moment on Thursday afternoon, when I just couldn't stop thinking about E and how she was doing - typically when we arrived to pick her up from daycare she was happy as a clam. She has settled right in to the whole two-days-per-week thing, such a boon that we have such an amazing daycare and such lovely carers - knowing she is perfectly happy and well looked after means I can focus on work without stressing over how she is going!
Was extremely spoilt with some lovely kikki_k goodies at Christmas - some of which are now gracing my new home away from home!
A splash of colour for Thursday!
Sensing a common theme in these photos? Much coffee has been consumed - as my boss said, you can't be a lawyer without coffee and red wine, and he speaketh truly!
One of my lovely girlfriends nominated me in the Hello Petal giveaway, for a bunch of flowers to celebrate my return to work - thanks Liz! 😘 They are beautiful. I felt very special.
It's definitely too early to call it, but I am going to say, so far, so good! Here's to next week and hopefully things continue in the same fashion.
