After much discussion, Sam has dropped his hours at work. This means a drop in money but is something I think is right for us as a family.
He will be starting another course with the open university in October and needs more time to study especially if he decides to do 2 courses.
I also want to be able to spend more time together as a family while T is little as time seems to go so fast now. Being able to do stuff midweek will hopefully mean we can avoid the weekend crowds.
The change is happening from the 1st of August, and I am really looking forward to it, all I need to do now is pass my driving test so we can take trips out as a family.
T has his first settling in session at nursery tomorrow and then next week he’s off to nursery and I’m back to work, it’s something I have mixed feelings about.
I think T going to nursery will be a good thing, he can mix with other children which he enjoys and get to try lots of new things. I will only be going back to work part time so I will be home with T more than I am at work I’m hoping it will be a good balance.
There’s just a few things I’m worried about. Getting organised the idea of being up and out of the house before 6:30 isn’t something I have had to do in over a year, luckily Sam will be doing the nursery run in the morning so I will only need to get myself ready and out the door.
How I will find being back at work, the place isn’t great for me emotionally and there is zero chance of progress but they are giving me the hours I want and it pays the rent at the end of the day. I am also looking forward to catching up with work colleagues as well and being able to drink a hot drink while its hot and have a set lunch break.
