I’ve been a bit of a part timer this month but I couldn’t resist the Britmums blog prompt, which is SO appropriate for us right now:

Changes ~ What major (or minor) changes have happened to you this year that have made a difference in your life?

You may have noticed that I haven’t been as active as normal on the blog, website, Twitter, Facebook…. well, just about everywhere really. That’s because the changes are coming thick and fast at MilkChic Mansions and I’m struggling to keep up!

Professionally, I have had to deal with a lot of negative changes over the last year. I have been trying desperately to get back to work since the end of my maternity leave, but over the last couple of months, I have had to accept that it is just not going to happen with my current employer. As not working isn’t an option, I now need to figure out what happens next and try to make it work around both small one and my current fitness level.

Physically, the change has been more positive. My back improved after an operation in May, but unfortunately the improvement isn’t enough to save my job. I’m waiting on another operation and am still hopeful I’ll run marathons again one day.

As a family, this year has been a better one. We are grateful that we’re all in good health. We’re still operating on a shoe string, but despite setbacks we are definitely wrenching back control.

It all pales into insignificance this week when we will move from our cramped 2 up 2 down terrace to a bigger house where small one will get her first bedroom and the garden is safe enough to play in.

Packing boxes is driving me insane, and I’m desperate to get some work done on the websites but it really feels like the first positive step towards happier times.

Normal service will resume at MilkChic next week – I’ll be the annoyingly cheerful one banging on about homewares, the joy of cupboards and other inane house related drivel.
