A Working Mum
Ooooh, I have had a busy day! A fornight ago an advertisement for a part time family support team member offering specialist breastfeeding support appeared in a children's centre where I do some volunteer peer support. I applied. I got an interview. After slogging through the snow to nursery and then school and then the centre I just had time to swap my wet wellies for some smart shoes. I had a haircut last weekend especially. I bought new trousers (and managed to escape the house without snot or banana on them). I was grilled (or it seemed like it) by the head at school and the centre manager. I left feeling there were so many things I wanted to say but forgot. I felt like I had completely fluffed it. I got a phone call an hour later. The post was mine, did I still want it? YES!!!!! It's just two school days a week and they have allowed me to work termtime to fit in with my own children. I am over the moon. I start next week. I haven't stopped smiling yet.
