I found out this week that i got a job i REALLY wanted, it's a full time position (desk job) but i'm really nervous about it.
I haven't ever held a full time job before and it's the first 'real' job i'll have had since having my DD in 06, I've been incredibly lucky to be able to stay home with her all that time.
How do the working mums cope with being away from their kids so much, This job is a min 40hrs p/w (works out to 9hours a day at work plus another 60min travelling time). The start and finish times will vary but i'll very rarely be able to take my DD to or from school anymore and i'll miss almost every school event from now on. It only hit me tonight how much i'll miss out on!
I am looking forward to the job, it's something i know i'll love, i am just torn between my heart and my head.
