First day back at work
It felt a bit like the first day of school... my nervousness heightened everything, and walking around the familiar space felt quite surreal. I kept thinking, "It's here: the day that felt so far away. It's today."
Actually, it was the perfect day to ease into this next bit of my life. Sunny, crisp, serene.
After a year of maternity leave, I expected to be a bit more unsettled leaving my little 'un behind. But after a slightly wobbly start, talking too fast and rather high-pitched on the phone to my husband, a coffee treat from a dear pal/colleague, and three bandaids for my big toe blister, I knew it would all be fine.
