Thank Goodness it's Friday!

It is a good feeling to get to the end of my first week back at work! Each day has got a little easier and I have got less tired. Major accomplishments include actually having got to work each day (I was tempted to stay in bed on Weds and pull the covers over my head and forget the crazy idea about working again!), clearing the 550 emails in my inbox reconnecting with colleagues and learning about their current projects, plus preparing for a meeting on Monday regarding my next big project.

Downs? Realising that even though I don't work Mondays, I already have 3 meetings booked in which can't be moved, so have had to talk nicely to mr.ncot so that we can swap days off.

On reflection, it feels good to be back, to be using my brain and ticking my way through my todo list. Even though I have a beautiful photo of the three of us on my desk, I hardly think about my gorgeous little lad (and big lad) during the day, but get very excited when it's home time.

And now? Time to go home :-)
