Hi to all the working mums out there!!
I have been enjoying reading the posts as I just returned to work yesterday after nearly 12 mths off. It has been a huge decision however at the end of the day we have financial commitments and myincome will really help out. I am working 19 hours a week, 2 and half days so should be a good balance. I too work in a profession whereby I need to use my skills and the industry is constantlychanging and I do enjoy working in some capacity. But it is really hard to leave Harry, I have a great Child care centre where my 5 yrold went and he will do 1.5 days in Cc and 1 day a week with grandma so best of both worlds.
You really need to be organised I find but there are so many positives to working as well as being a mum, if you can do both is a challenge but very rewarding
Good luck, Lianne
