After working part time for the first 6 years of my children's lives and then being blessed with 4 years at home with them full time, I have now rejoined the workforce.
I applied for a full time job last month, along with between 300-400 other people... and after a rigorous selection process, I was one of 12 who was hired, blown away!!!
So last week I started back at work full time, with misgivings and uncertainty right up until the moment I walked through the office door.
How would I last all day?
how would the kids cope with after school care?
how would I get time to blog, craft, waste time on the internet, pin???
(oh and clean, cook...blah blah blah, Im a terrible housewife anyway so that won't change..hehe).

I arrived, found the training room, sat down and spent the week being blown away by the incredible company I have been blessed to get a job with.
Turns out I do the working full time thing pretty well, so far... and so does our family!
We are loving the big changes and adapting well. It is forcing us to be super organised (super!) and we are working together to make it all happen.
We decided to make meals on the weekend to pop in the freezer/fridge for the week to reduce stress for all of us at the end of our long days. Tonight it was a blessing!
I am on a massive learning curve with three weeks of training before we start 'doing' the job.
I continue everyday to be impressed by the company and can see it will be a job I really enjoy and a workplace that is committed to looking after, supporting and growing their staff.
So that's me. As we settle into our new roles I will probably find more time to squeeze in a bit of crafting and blogging but for now its all about us... our little family adapting to our new pace of life.
I have a whole lot to share as life has been so busy of late... sudden trips to NZ, moving house (again!), some yummy recipes, meet ups with lovely bloggers, how I've survived without sugar for the last two months... yep, life is pretty much all go here!
