Phew I made it through my first week back at work, and yes it was tough. I have cried and spent most of the week missing the girls but now its the weekend and I can spend two whole days with them. I am looking forward to it! I am going to make every second count.
My girls are with their Grandma today and I feel a lot more at ease when they are there. I find it easier to concentrate and get work things done. I still miss them but its a lot easier. I feel ever so lucky that the girls have such a close bond with my Mum and my Dad and that they are able to help look after them when I am at work.
I also had some good news today and that is that I have paid of my student loan, in fact I have overpaid it and am due some money back. It is a great relief to have finally paid it off. I set myself a target of paying it off by the time I was 30 and its great to have achieved it.
I am awaiting my girls coming home from my parents house and I cannot wait for a cuddle to mark the end of the first week back at work.
This day I love the end of the first week.
