I know I’ve not posted for a while, naughty me. I just thought I’d check in and say hello!
I just wanted to write a quick post about how I’ve been feeling recently. As you know, we’re now in May, and the company I work for have a fantastic maternity contract. However, I’ve been off for nearly 6 months now, and shortly my money will drop to Statutory Maternity Pay, which is terrifying. I know a lot of people don’t have as good maternity contracts with the company they work for, so I’m actually quite privileged to have been paid good money for so long, to essentially look after a baby. But, the time has come for my pay to plummet, and for me to think about returning to work soon.
Now, I’m not looking forward to returning to work, for multiple reasons, the main one being that I don’t want to be away from my little best friend. (I am looking forward to having my full pay again though.) So, because I’m not looking forward to returning to work, it’s just playing on my mind that I have a few weeks left where I can do what I want, when I want (within reason because a 5 month old only lets you do so much…)
It’s just a scary thought and i’m just going to try and make the most of the time I’ve got left where it’s me and my buddy all day everyday, because I’m going to miss her so much when I’m not here 24/7.
