Returning to work...

My blogging has been few and far between lately which I'm not happy about. I'm feeling the need for a bit of a break at the moment as there seems to be so many things going on.

The Mother's Day Stall was a huge success and I'm now concentrating on a slightly smaller project, being Chloe's 8th birthday party next Friday night. And for the first time in Birthday Party History in our household, I am not going to do it all myself...I am hiring some entertainers to do it ALL for me. We're having a Pajama Party with twelve little girls, so I've hired a couple of teenage girls who will run the show. Then we're having pizzas for dinner, followed by birthday cake. I think this is going to be the easiest party ever!!!

Also, I had a call a few weeks ago from a company I used to work for before I had the kids, asking me if I was interested in coming back to work part hours, two days a week (whatever days I choose), good money...ummm....yeah, I'll take the job!!! They are a large Insurance Broking firm and I'm starting with them next week. I have to say, I'm VERY nervous. My main concern is for the kids (I think that's what they call 'Mother Guilt'!!!). I don't want them to be negatively impacted by this in any way. And I'm pretty sure they won't be, as things will remain constant for them. I will still drop them to school on both work mornings and pick them up one day. Then Glenn will pick them up the other day so that I can work until 5pm. They are very excited about daddy picking them up one day a week (BUT I don't think they're as excited about daddy preparing dinner for them!!!).

I need some time for me to settle into this new routine, so things on the blogging front will be quiet for a little while.

Time for Celebration!!!

Well, it was a HUGE success. We made the most we've ever made at our Mother's Day Stall today and I have to say, I was just a little bit proud. The stall looked really gorgeous...until it poured with rain!!! Only for the first hour or so, then it cleared...thank goodness!!! We were absolutely overwhelmed with cakes, cookies, relishes and homemade things which was fantastic. Apparently they've never had so many baked goods and potted plants before.

Anyway, I'm off to put my feet up for the first time in a while. Then I'll be getting stuck into organising Chloe's 8th birthday Pajama Party in two weeks!!!!!!!!!! Which I think will be a walk-in-the-park compared to the Mother's Day Stall!!!
