Back to work full-time

At the start of the year, I returned to work full-time. In June last year, I returned to work 3 days as part of my transition back to work after having been on maternity leave for 1.5 years. I was job sharing and it didn't feel that bad. In fact I really enjoyed going to work on the days I had to.

Since returning to work full-time, I must admit it is really stressful. My team is under staffed at the moment and it is a very busy period. I had not realised how much the company had expanded while I was away. Unfortunately with the expansion, current processes and staffing pose an issue. In addition to that, my little boy still wakes up at least once every night. 

But the main heartache I have is that I miss my boy so much. He is at such a fun age now where he can talk and interact and do silly things. He is also becoming helpful by helping me throw things in the bin or pass me the tissues when I am too lazy to get up. Isaac happily does these things for me. Such a good boy! 

So why work full-time or work at all? Unfortunately at this stage we need the finances to support our housing projects and our ageing parents who have intentions of moving to Melbourne. Whilst we have the benefit of full-time employment in such a fluid economy, best to make full use of it! 

I hope one day I can stay home more or be closer to home. 

For now, I shall press on and not give up.

We are moving

We have bought a house and are selling our current place. We have really enjoyed living here but I guess it is time to move on to a bigger and better place :) 

So sad..will definitely miss our neighbours and all the good memories we have had in this house. 
It was the first house we bought and it is also Isaac's first home. We still have a number of months before we move. In the meantime, we are trying to sell our house and have to style and keep it presentable. It's a bit hard to keep your house so tidy but as I work 5 days and Isaac is at childcare 5 days, it is much easier as we are hardly at home.

Here are some photos of our home :)

Myuna Farm, Doveton

Had a wonderful day at the farm on Australia Day. Went with our friends Jia Yun, David and their daughter Isabelle. Lots of animals to feed!

This cow almost ate Isaac's hand. After that he didn't want to feed any more animals. 

Look at them looking at each other. So cute!

Holding and patting rabbits and guinea pigs but they were very hard to catch.

Enough walking, why not a 3 dollar train ride? Fun times!
