It's only Thursday, but it feels like it should be Friday.  

Anyone else?

It should be Friday, then the weekend should skip Sunday just had enough of my boss (she didn't my dh so we have no money for food cause I paid the bills without knowing he had not been paid). I have half a bottle of wine to drink.

(If the boss says anything she will wish she didn't)

Oh yes.

I worked Wed-Fri and Mon-Wed this week where as I normally work Mon-Wed, and I feel exhausted.  Work is at a very very hectic stage, so today when I am not working I have answered emails for a large part of the day.

Getting back to the work/school routine has been hard.

Thankfully DS is loving being back at school, but with the move to middle school getting the hang of it has been hard work, probably for us more than him

Hi all!

Balzac that sound wonderful, I am jealous .....

I'm back at work after a years maternity leave...more than a year actually, as I tacked on some annual leave at the end. So that's been an adjustment!

Sadly a horror file which I left with my replacement ...hoping he would finalise it- has come back to haunt me... cry1.gif ...I had hoped it would be finished, but no!

I'm a lawyer for one of our national broadcasters .... I do a lot of their technology contracts ..transmission services agreements and such...they are huge contracts and a nightmare to manage....

All the lawyers in the department have to do prepublication advice which is really interesting....that's vetting stories for defamation, contempt of court etc.....I enjoy this aspect of my job, the transmission stuff....not so much....

Have you resumed your studies AV?

Not quite.  I have started in my field placement for the year, but classes don't start until later in the month.  I am hanging out for them with growing desperation!

Ha! I know what you mean...I kind of had mixed feelings about going back to work, and leaving Ds2 in the hands of his carer....he is my last baby  - I won't have any more- so that's a chapter of my life that is now shut. I'm really enjoying work, and the intellectual stimulation that comes with it though...I tend to get myself in a bit of a " holding pattern " when I'm on mat. Leave, I'm actually far more efficient ..at everything (work, home life) when I work! Very odd, but that's how it is...

JRA...I know what you meAn getting back into the school routine, DS1 is adjusting pretty well, but the mornings are a blur, school lunches, packing bags etc...and now I have to have myself half presentable for work!

Minime4me.....that sounds like an awful situation! I hate it when payroll can't get their act together.....the reality is many people live pay packet to pay packet and if they miss a pay it leaves them high and dry...hope you can sort it out....

#13 Mitis angelam

I've hated my "maternity leave" - if you can call it such - with a passion.  I feel trapped, depressed, anxious and generally miserable.  DH runs choir practice on Thursday nights and doesn't usually take DD, but he got home today and I told him to take her, for her sake, because I was absolutely at my wits' end.  And she's not even a bad kid, she's great!  I just want with every fibre of my being to be focussed elsewhere.

So, yeah...bring on semester!

Hi all.

I just found out I have been accepted to do some postgrad study!

I am elated. I've been hitting refresh on my inbox about 50,000 times waiting to find out.

Sorry people are having a sh*tty time but yay me.

Also, Balzac, I am so jealous! And on an unrelated note, is your UN supposed to sound like "ball sack" because that's what I think in my head when I read it. It's like aww, good old ball sack.

Yeh, I totally get this. I find mothering (full time mothering) relentless .....there's an article ...I'll try to find the link....which spoke to this really well.....but already I find myself engaging better with my children than I did when I was with them full time.....

Pooks, that's great news ...what are you studying?

Hi all.  I would love a drink.  Except the wine is in the fridge and I am trapped under a hungry, sh*t-machine of a son.  And the remote for the TV is in the other room.  This is bad.

Enjoy your break, Balzac!  

Ange, I hope things will be better once you get back to study and work.  I'm already finding motherhood relentless and I'm only a month in and he's a relatively good sleeper.  

Eta congrats Pooks!

LB that sounds like quite a cool job.

Oh, work...don't get me started.  I've done as much whingeing as I should in any one thread.

It sounds as if new motherhood is treating you about as should be expected, though, Greenbag?  How are you surviving?

Banana.. Ballsack.

The kids are all tucked up, DH is away for a few nights, and I am debating between tv and a good book....if I opt for book, then it becomes real book vs. iPad book. I think I might finally invest in a kindle or some such piece of technology.

Then of course, the choice is also red, or beer. I am thinking red, but I do so hate to leave some in the bottle. This is my biggest issue for the night.
