First and foremost I have a bit of exciting news, I can access my wordpress account from my ancient work computer so normal blogging will continue in my lunch hour. In fact given the distractions I face at home I’d be surprised if you didn’t see more from me now I’m sat at a desk in peace. It’s likely I’ll throw in the odd face/outfit of the day but for the most part there will be product reviews a plenty as per usual. Another rather lovely thing I discovered today was my Save The Date for the Cosmo Blog Awards in my inbox. I’m so thankful to everyone who nominated/voted for me, as I’ve previously mentioned I’m under no illusion a ‘nobody’ like me can win when I’m up against such internet heavy weights as Fleur De Force and Zozeebo but hey.. it’s pretty awesome to have been shortlisted so I’m very happy with that! Whether I’ll actually attend the awards.. I’m still on the fence. I’ve spoken out about events in the past and I really just don’t think I fit in with the blogging crowd. That’s not to say they’re not all lovely I just don’t know any of them and it’s tough to break in to an established group when it’s potentially one of the only times I’ll ever meet them. I’m far less confident than I may appear on screen and going down to London for the night totally alone is more than a little daunting so we’ll see. I’d love to go I just don’t know if I have the metaphorical balls to rock up unaccompanied.
Shockingly I have little to say about my first day back in the working world. I enjoyed getting ‘dressed up’ and I totally agree with all you Mums that promised me it would feel like a holiday compared to staying home with baby.. I had chunks of time today when I actually had nothing to do. That never happens at home, believe me! I dropped Milo off at his childminders without a tear and have remained cry free all day long which is perhaps the biggest surprise.. I’m very much looking forward to a big squeeze when I get home though. It was Ella’s first day of year 2 today as well, I’m informed it went well and she came home with no coat or bag so just an average school day for Ella. On the whole I was pretty much dreading today (and have the stress breakouts to prove it) but it was a piece of cake, I am almost looking forward to coming back tomorrow and already can’t wait for payday!
