From stay at home mum to working mum...

Today I made the transition from "stay at home mum" to "working mum"... After just over 11 months of maternity leave I started back at work today. The big news about this is that I didn't go back to my old company... After a lot of to-and-fro-ing we couldn't settle on a job description that suited both the IMO and me. In the meantime I had a couple of other job opportunities arise and I eventually settled on one of them. So today I started as a Senior Regulatory Analyst with Verve Energy (an electricity generator in Western Australia). It was an incredibly hard decision to make, one that I agonized over for weeks!

It's really hard leaving my little boy each day and only seeing him for about 2 hours a day... But me going back to work means we will be able to give him a whole lot more opportunities that we would otherwise! At this stage I am just doing 3.5 days a week, but this will ramp up over the next few months.
