Now she's three she'll be starting nursery in a couple of weeks. I went online to get the term times and added them to my calendar thinking I was being very organised but it just sent me into a panic... I was adding dates for next July when baby E won't be a baby anymore *sob* and when we'll be thinking about K starting school. I'm going to file that away in a dark recess of my brain right next to the niggling thoughts of when my maternity allowance ends and I'll need to somehow find work and childcare that I can fit around two little ones, if it is even worth going back to work.
I had to look into working while you are on maternity leave. You can do up to 10 days paid work, which the Department of Work and Pensions call "keeping in touch days", without affecting your maternity allowance, so even if I find that I can't cope I'll not be missing out.
So if it's a bit quiet on my blog you know why. Wish me luck, I'm hoping the stress may help me fit back into my jeans!
I'm linking to Lakota's Ta-dah! Tuesday, even though it's Wednesday... I'm such a rebel. I think making cakes and landing work is worth a ta-dah!
