this mama life

Hello everyone!

Just wanted you to know that I am alive! ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, I am still here juggling kids and their school activities and husband on his FIFO schedules.ย  Also after almost three year hiatus from working environment I finally decided that I am ready to get out of the comfort of my warm bed and dragging my lazy behind up to….work!back to work

Yeah…it’s not easy I have to admit, especially the days that I have to work full-time from 9 to 5.30.ย  Those days that every single minute is worth it, especially when I know I have my little monkey waiting for me to pick him up from training and another monkey is at home.ย  And it’s winter here. So it gets dark quick.ย  Then when I get home I gotta deal with cooking and helping them with homework. Oh, and the dog also wants my attention.ย  And husband is not always available.ย  So, I think you will understand if I am a bit crazy some days :p :p I take my hat off to all the working mums and single mothers who work full-time job!

So, why I want to get back to work, you might ask? Well, the opportunity was there and I thought my children is not that small again like couple years ago when I decided to work ( and ended up in a big mess for everyone ), they are big enough to ride their bike some days from school to home and to their training center.ย  Also, even though it is nice to have the life of the lady of leisure, deep down in my bone I know I like to earn my money again, to be a little independent financially.ย  I am lucky enough this time that I get to work mostly school hours, except those two days that I have to work full-time.ย  Plus, I am doing what I love most, I work in fashion, I like to make people especially women feel good on their appearance and body. I like to dress women and make them look beautiful.ย  I am looking for a stress-free job, a job that I don’t have to bring it with me home and caused headache. I’ve been there and done those years that I got to deal with dead-lines and worried about this and that, so no more of it. I am not looking for high career and big responsibilities, but I also don’t want my brain to go kaputt and rustic at all.ย  So I am doing what I love and make me happy and get satisfaction out of it. It’s just good for my sanity and soul ๐Ÿ™‚

Like my boys said, ” I kinda like you working again Mum, yeah it’s a bit not easy for us but it makes us more independent ”ย  or ” I like when you work Mum, because you always have a funny story to tell ”ย  While my husband’s response was, ” This scares me a bit cause I’m concerned about the extra pressure it will add to you and the dilemmas you’re gonna have working out the kids’ schedule. But ok do it because it should help with your sanity!”ย  Haaa….blessed him to have to put up with his crazy wife! ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, that’s the story of my life lately.ย  I hope you are good where ever you are in the world, and fingers cross I can sit down and share more stories with you.ย  Thank you all for reading this little piece of my mind ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a lovely Thursday everyone!
