A working girl

Well we have some changes happening at our place this week.

After 3 years at home raising her daughter, Amie has started fulltime work (out of necessity rather than want!) And Ruby has started daycare.

Anyway, Amie is working in a nursery, in the 'rose' department. She has a few scratches to prove it! Seems to be enjoying it (it's only been two days) but will take a little while to get used to the change. The early mornings (she starts at 7am so needs to be gone from home by 6:15am) is indeed a challenge. I'm sure she'll get used to it once she has her first pay packet! She has survived for 3 years on very very little money, so it will be nice for her.

Ruby is loving daycare so far! Comes home pretty tired each night, but that's to be expected for a long time yet. She's only just three after all. She's made a few little friends already.

Now that Amie is working fulltime, it means I will have more chores around the home to do (I work part-time so it makes sense) We have ooodles of washing, and that in itself has been a challenge this week. It's easy to get it into the machine, but good organisation is needed to get it out on the line, in again AND folded and put away!

Anyway, I'm sure it will all be a positive move for our family!

I know what you mean about the laundry. We've had good, hot drying weather but I keep putting off going out into it to hang the washing.
