Let’s just let that sink in for a minute… tick, tick, tick.
I’ve got a full time job and I can’t tell you what it is yet, but it must be pretty amazing to drag me out of my happy little freelancing zone, don’t you think? Yep, it’s pretty amazing… and daunting. I haven’t worked full-time since 2004.
This week was my first week and I’ve been going into the city on the train and wearing make up and eating lunch in cafes and shoes. I’ve been wearing shoes every single day. Crazy, I know.
Most of the time I’ll be working from home, but some of the time I”ll be wearing the make up and the shoes and going into the city and doing the commuter thing. In my mind that adds up to equal parts exhilarating and exhausting. There’s your work/life balance right there.
I’ll fill you in more in a couple of weeks.
In other news, I’m a volunteer tonight at the Sydney Oxfam Trailwalker, clocking in for the 7pm – 3am shift. It’s exciting to be part of this wonderful event, despite being incapable of walking the 100kms myself. Those who can do, those who can’t support those who can. That’s what I reckon anyway!
Other things that had me this week:
Reading – The ‘new starter employee handbook’. OMG, it’s true!
Writing – just here.
Making – friends at a Northern Beaches blogger meet up that I invited myself to. I don’t actually live on the Northern Beaches, but loads of really fab bloggers do, so I went and they were even more fab than expected.
Wishing – I had less self-doubt and more chutzpah.
Loving – the almost-here blossoms on our cherry tree. Spring is easily my favourite season.
Wondering – what I’m doing, getting a big person’s job.
There aren’t really that many Aussie bloggers on my radar who aren’t afraid to stick their neck out and tackle the controversial issues. We can all be a bit samey-same-same and that bothers me a great deal. Luckily I found Amy from HandbagMafia. I love Amy’s balanced, passionate writing, her clear viewpoints and her openness to consider every side of the story. She is clever mixed with thoughfulness and that’s a very addictive combination to read. Go say hi and I promise you will want to stick around.
Have a lovely weekend and happy reading.
PS – Do you work? At home or away? What do you do? How many hours?
Needing some hand holding!
