After the Noise
Do you hear that?
That is the quiet that arrives after school holidays and the children and Kevin are all safely back to their assigned school/nursery/work arrangements.
Working from home is wonderful, but never more so after 2 weeks of juggling deadlines and children, play dates and conference calls. That moment when I wave them off and I am left to just get on with it is bliss.
But it was fun and I know in about a day and a half I will miss them terribly. Due to my increased workload in the run up to Blogtacular, the kids are in childcare pretty much full time. The school holidays were a good chance to just hang out with them and play, putting work aside as much as possible (so very hard for a workaholic like myself). It did remind me of my early days in business when I would work late into the evening. Kevin tells me I was grumpy all the time and after these 2 weeks, I can tell he is right.
Today, I will be just pottering along, catching up on deadlines both imminent and missed and enjoy the peace and quiet and bask in the novelty that the only snacks/drinks/toilet breaks I need to sort are my own.
