As you may know, I’m starting back at work next week. I’ve been off since last November and I’m going back to a completely new project that I know nothing about so I’m a bit nervous. That’s before I even start thinking about T going to nursery for the first time, worrying if he’ll take as long to settle as E did and trying to work out how to get both boys ready and out of the house before 8am while actually looking presentable myself.
I’m expecting next week to be a bit hectic and not to have too much time for blogging myself so a handful of lovely ladies have kindly agreed to do some guest posts for me on the subject of work and motherhood. I hope you’ll pop by and show them some love.
The fact that all my guest bloggers are approaching the topic of work from a different angle made me think that we’ve probably all got something to say about it and that can mean only one thing to a blogger…you’ve guessed it… a Blog Carnival. It would be lovely if you could linky up a post about work. If nothing else it’s a change from thinking about Christmas ;).
It can be about being a working mum or giving up work to stay at home. Why you like it or why you don’t. It could be about the worst job you ever had or the job you’d most like to do or even what you wanted to be when you grew up. It could be a serious post about childcare provision or maternity leave rights or you could go for a funny interview anecdote or describing your boss from hell. You can write a post specially or you could linky up something you’ve written in the past if you like.
What do you think? Sounds like a plan? I’ll open up the linky on Monday (19th December) at 9am and it’ll be open until Friday (23rd) at 5pm, a full working week (for us NHS types anyway) so drop by anytime to linky up and to see what everyone else is posting. If you’d like to grab the badge from below and include it that would be super but it’s not a requirement.
So hope to see you all on Monday then. X
