Work have asked me to find a north west case study to go with an article about women who have children first and then go on to start career from scratch Does anyone know anyone in north west who this applies to who might be interested in talking to me about it? I think it would be really interesting ...
Oooh Lizzer - not sure actually. I'll have to ask on Monday. My email is email@example.com. You can either send me your email or I'll post on here Monday morning to let you know.
I know what you mean Jbr - I thought that at first. But then thought some more and reckon there must be loads of women who start out certain that they want to concentrate on their family straight from school/college/uni - then change their minds. Guess it#s the same as throwing yourself into a career determined you'll stick with it and then deciding that you can't stand all the juggling any more and pack your job in (which is how I feel 50% of the time).
Don't know how anyone else feels, but for me when it's all running smoothly I think I'm luckiest woman alive to have job and kids - then the wheels come off and I wonder how I ever thought I could do it all in the first place.
When mine are both at school, Sept 2003, I intend to start college to learn a new trade of some sort. I did dental nursing and secretarial but would like to learn something new don't know what yet though. I might try an NVQ in childcare.
