I’ve now been a working mum for a full week, which actually means just two days per week as I’m employed part-time. Although to be honest I’ve been working a lot more than that in order to get on top of everything – I’m sure you know what it’s like with a new job!
I’m the Social Media Manager and Content Writer for Dickins Edinburgh – a company that lets peoples’ homes to Edinburgh visitors. They started renting out homes during the festival way back in 1998, but now it’s all year round. The office is just a 5-minute walk from home, which I really appreciate.
So far I’m really enjoying work and haven’t even had time to worry about Lana. Not that I need to worry, she’s well taken care of by Matthew’s parents. Still no signs of separation anxiety either, she just laughs and waves goodbye when they pick her up in the morning! I have to admit that it’s pretty amazing to be able to sit down for a whole day without having a wee person demanding your attention non-stop, but at the same time I do miss my little frog!
Although I’ve only worked for one week I can already understand the feeling of guilt about not being there for your child that so many mothers struggle with. Don’t know how mums who work full-time do it…I respect them even more now! Don’t think I could manage more than two days per week at the moment, I’m way too dependent on Lana haha.
Anyway, I’ve included some photos of some of the homes in Edinburgh that Dickins rent out. Have to say this new job gives me a serious case of flat envy – not good when you’re wanting to buy a place yourself and can’t afford anything nearly as nice as these gorgeous homes! (I’ve picked out the ones I like the most, not all flats are this luxurious btw!)
What do you think? Which one is your favourite? 🙂
Time to watch an episode of House of Cards. Hope you all have a great start to the week!
