The Honest Guide To….Going Back To Work
I’ve done it before, I’ll do it again. She says. Still doesn’t make it much easier. If I hear, “But you’ll be fine,” one more time.. People are only trying to help. I KNOW I’ll be fine, Lily will be fine, we’ll ALL be fine.
I’m going back to work. After 8 months off. Lily turns 8 months old this week.
I’m lucky enough to have been off work as long as Lily’s been alive due to her premature arrival into the world – Had I gone overdue it could have been less, but still – Its never enough time off, is it? I’m sure most mums would always like more time off with their babies. Having said this, the 6 week Summer Holidays with both baby and an 8 year old seemed to draaaaaaaaaaaaaag on some days.
Don’t get me wrong – there are definitely things I’m looking forward to about going back into the corporate world; so I’ve made a list of these – I may need reminding of the below come Monday morning at 8am.
Finally, I’ll just be me, Hannah Fouassier, again. A Colleague, an employee and most people probably won’t give two hoots that I’m a mummy - I’ll need to limit the amount of times I talk about the children throughout the day.. that’ll be a tough one.
After all, How can anyone NOT want to know the colour of Lily’s latest poo? A thick auburn-browny, just incase you were wondering..
Wish me Luck!
