I am so, so sorry I have not been around. As you know I am now working Full Time from the new site, an hours commute each way, and to be honest it is absolutely killing me. By the time I get home I am only spending 45 minutes with Aidan before he goes to bed, once he has gone I have my chores to do and then finally sit down to something to eat and a rest.


On Friday I was told that my request for Redundancy was approved should I still wish to take it. I thought long and hard over the weekend, was I mad to even think of leaving a job in this climate, would I be better off sticking with it, would I regret my missed time with Aidan?
In the end I decided that I have never heard anybodys deathbed words to be "I wish I had spent more time at work" so I told my boss on Monday that I would like to take Voluntary Redundancy. All I am waiting for now is my leave date :-)

Its going to be scary, at times it may be quite hard financially. No matter how hard life gets, I will have a life and not just an existance spent on Motorways and missing my family. Aim initially is to be a stay at home Mummy, getting bump number 2 is a work in progress! If that doesn't work out then I will get a part time job, I've looked through some job sites and theres actually quite a few things I could do.

Will keep you posted!
