Unhappy OMG, I start work on Monday.....

Well I guess it was only a matter of time (6mths to be exact) before I returned to gainful employment. I had been getting used to being a lady of leisure too. All good things must come to an end, so I'm told ( but why).

I shall only be working 2 x 8hr shifts to begin with, well I have to get back into it gently. But how am I ever going to get myself up & out by 6am. I've been surfacing about 10am for the past few months.
Think of the money, think of the money, will have to be my mantra.
Wish me luck people.

You will be fine
I mean, how different can it be?
And if those pregnant ladies would just hold off until 10.30 am or so, you should be wide enough awake to assist!
karma for your new job

I usually end up in bed by about 9pm, (late night tonight!) as I have to be up at 7am after 2 months of dossing, so karma to you my friend to join the working ranks! Good luck for Monday.

Thanks to you all. I have got the text books out so I can refresh the brain cells. I can remember the "catching" bit but what else does a midwife do (tries to force her two brain cells to meet)!

I'm liking the idea of IV bolly can I have some please?

Hope your job's going well Karen.

love Annie x
