Ever since I had Oliver I have never been alone... I am forever chasing children, telling them to stop doing what they are doing, and trying to mould them into little human beings and even when I am left without them for a short time, I generally spend time thinking about when I have to get them back.
Today, however, I am alone...
Oliver started childcare today.
I was intent on starting him in daycare for 1 or 2 days this year as it will give me more time to do WeePantz things, and also give me a little time to myself as well as giving him the chance to develop socially and learn things through activities I can only rarely be bothered cleaning up (such as painting etc).
I then had the opportunity to go back to work 20hrs a week so Olly will now be away from me a little more often as well as giving me the opportunity to earn money for the things that all women crave like shoes. WeePantz will still continue, I just crave outside time as well, and this job will pay for the childcare as well!!
So today, I had my first shift back in a cafe (I didn't break anything so thats a positive) it was lots of fun, and I cant wait for my regular shifts to start :) So now I am alone, no one to tell to stop picking their nose or to get out of the fridge. I can go to the toilet on my own and can have a shower without an audience.
Loving it! I can also work uninterrupted on some big orders I have also had and a little idea for the shop (I'll keep you updated for that).
So until tomorrow, I am going to go and enjoy my solitude, sew without one child as the "pin lady" and the other being the "reversing button boy" and get some work done!!
