Back to work

I am back at my desk, everything and nothing has changed!

Biggest change is that IT security have finally closed direct access to twitter and livejournal :-( Am hoping i can use the email blogging function...

Good things
My colleagues welcomed me back warmly, I have a bouquet of roses on my
desk and I brought croissants for the team.

Annoying things
I still feel ill and am absolutely exhausted and it is only 14.20! I
can't get my outlook calendar from home to copy.
I have 521 emails to read :-(
It has taken me all morning to get my laptop to work again, to install
all the required new apps.

Ah well, baby steps.

I've been wondering how you got on. Baby steps is right. And roses on your desk? Wow!

Thanks! Today was okay, but still found it hard to adjust. Tell me it gets easier! I feel so tired adn weepy this evening.... How did you cope going back full time?

It gets easier. Promise. :)

I eased myself in very gradually to full time work. The crazy-but-generous way in which you accrue annual leave while on maternity leave meant I could work a three-day week for a while. And things were made easier for me because mr dodo has been Max's full-time carer - no mad rushes of a morning as we all try to get ready for work/nursery. Of course, that means when we do start our new routine in a couple of weeks, it's going to be fun ... but I'm sure we'll get used to it.

How's the rest of the week going?
