Dear Daisy, It is your first day at school...

The big return to work

I went back to work this week, something I've been dreading for most of my maternity. But I knew I had to return at some point.

For those of you that follow our blog you'll know I started a brand new job rather than returning to my old one, so it's all change. I expected to feel sick Sunday and be a real Debbie downer but to be honest I was fine. 

For my first few days I needed to be in London, away from home and over night. To make things less anxious Ben and Daisy came with me and so I wasn't completely alone after work and I didn't have the anxiety of leaving my baby girl for too long alongside the anxiety of being the new girl too. I'm very lucky that my husband did this! 

I also expected to be sat there in the office thinking about them all day and wishing I was there rather than working. I did think about them and I did message them a few times. But it wasn't as awful as I thought it would be. A big part of it was down to her being with her daddy and only being a few miles away but am so maybe I'd just built myself up to think it was going to be awful!! 

To be able to have a nice hot drink and not have to be jiggling Daisy up and down or playing peekaboo whilst mopping up yogurt off her was quite a novelty! Also adult conversation and having to engage my brain back into work mode was nice too in a funny little way. I'm sure this will wear off though!!!!  

I guess this is just a post to say thank you for all of your messages and support in my return to work, you were all right, it's not so bad after all. 

Love, Hayley xxx

      I have recently purchased a keyboard, I am very happy with it, I recommend it) . The Logitech K380 driver and software allow you to connect the keyboard to a variety of devices.
