I've got serious blues about going back to work so please remind me of all the GOOD things about returning to work...

Adult company
Adult conversation
Finishing a not drink
A break from house work
Identitity as someone other than a Mum
Having control over your day (ish)
Not being at someone's beck and call

I could go on forever...

that should read hot drink!

If you liked your job before then you'll be fine. First couple of months will be hard.

A good list! Although I don't do that much housework anyway...blush

The thing is, I was beginning to hate my job before I got pregnant, which is why I am DREADING it so much.

I think the thing I am most looking forward to is being able to have a lunch break which doesn't involve retrieving bits of finger food from the floor...

Not just adult conversation - uninterrupted adult conversation! Good luck grin

I rmember that moment and it it is truly depressing! But it is so lovely to:
go to the toilet
drink coffee
go to the pub on friday lunch
anything previousl;y mentioned...

I booked the nursery to start a day befrore i started work. I blubbed big time then went off to have a decent hair cut/manicure. I had a moment of panic as I was convinced I had left the baby somewhere!
