Going back to work after MAT leave

Yes thats right, I am going back to work. I took a full year off on my Maternity leave. My maternity leave ended back in September however due to the amount of holidays I had I managed to stay off until now. This week sees my return and I have to say I am nervous.

I work for Virgin Media on the Business customer side, I am worried I will of totally forgotten what to do. There are so many commands to remember when logging on to customer equipment and diagnosing faults and fixing faults. I am sure as soon as I get back into it I will be fine though and will wonder why I have been worrying.

I will 100% not be neglecting my blog. The blog will carry on being as strong as ever and I will put the time in after work and more later nights.

I am looking forward to going back only 2 days a week and seeing my friends there and having some adult conversation. Little Man will be at school and Bubs will be at Nursery one day a week and with my Mum the other day. I am just glad my Mum can help out otherwise I just would not be able to return to work. Childcare costs us £260 a month for Bubs going to nursery one day a week!

I shall update a Little later on in the month to let you all know how it is going.

Have you recently returned back to work? How did you get on?

    I hope your first day back goes well, I bet you soon get back into the swing of things and feel like you have never been away. Nursery is so expensive I had to give my job up after having J as having two under twos meant full time childcare would cost more then I earned xx

      Yeah nursery is so expensive. Were lucky the Little Man is now at school so its like free child care. If we had 2 kids under school age I would never have been able to go back
