I think thats all I can really say to sum up my feelings at the minute!

I want you to picture that Eeeeeeeeek in 2 ways and then I will talk you through it!
First Eeeeeeeeek is done in a "oh my word how scary" way, as in "Eeeeeeeeeeeeeek theres a really big spider".
Second Eeeeeeeek is in a "whoop whooop Im so excited" way, as in "I just found a £20 note!"

So now you have those in mind ( I will colour code them!) let me explain!

I am now into my last week at work, my Redundancy leave date was moved forward and I finish on Friday, they will still pay me until May 31st and I will be oncall so to speak in case they have any dramas. But all staying well as of Monday I will be a Stay at home Mummy. Feeling a bit apprehensive about finances, even though I will get a fairly generous pay off in June. I worry if I will manage to budget well? Will we ever manage to have treats again? How will I find talking to nobody but a 3 year old for most of the day? What if I have to admit defeat and accept that I am not the person I thought I was and I'm not able to be a Housewife! And then I think how much I am looking forward to keeping my home, baking again, crafting and all the other things I currently do not have time for.

I feel that the whole Family will benefit from me being at home. Whilst I have been commuting I have been so tired and have had no energy for anything, Chris has had to help me a lot by cooking most meals due to my unpredictable hours and doing the bulk of the Childcare. By me being at home I can take over the household tasks, meaning he will not be as tired. I will not have a back log of chores that takes over my weekend preventing me from having Family time, meaning we can have picnics and fun times.

Yes I think it will be hard at times, its going to take a lot of work and planning but on the whole I am very excited by my New Job :-)
