Working mum

So I started work on the 11 th last month and am starting to get used to it a little bit.Although I still wish that it was possible for me to work less or to work from home.The baby is still so small.(almost 8 months now) and I just wish I could take care of her more. Now I have to do with one day parental leave per week.
Well, I'm grateful that I have at least that extra day.
And ofcourse I was looking forward a lot -literally counting the days lol-to my first payment. Yay !That was nice ,but with having to pay the rent and other bills and the child minder and so on, it was all gone pretty quickly.
I just got myself a 'modern mum' magazine and just lots of food etc and two skirts from sales for the baby and a toy for dd1.And a 3 euro blouse for church. But hubby got me a nice coat,which I only wore to church because it's too cold to wear it when I need to take the bus home from work.
So today is my weekly day off. Dd1 is off from school so we all got to sleep late except for dad who needed to go to work of course.
It's good to have some extra rest in the middle of the week.
I'm starting work everyday at 7, so I have to wake up really early and am exhausted everyday. After work, I go to the creche around 4,feed the baby and then take her with me and then pick up dd1 and take them home. And then I cook dinner and by that time I haven't got much energy left.
So I hope this day off in the middle of the week will make a difference.
This is the first time I really stayed home with minimal activities, so we'll see.
I just did a little bit of cleaning .I wanted to do more but I needed to give the baby attention as well. She has a runny nose,is coughing,has nappy rash and is teething. Poor girl !I'm really happy I can be home with her today.Praise God !
Wow, only two more days work and then it's weekend again. Yay !
All you working mums, hold on the weekend is almost there.
And everyone a very blessed week !

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.

Mummy, I need your 'pookie'

It’s World Breastfeeding Week from August 1st to August 7th 2013 and this year’s theme is Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers. You can read more about it on The focus is on community support, particularly in the form of peer-to-peer support.
To show support for World Breastfeeding Week, the Irish Parenting Bloggers group is holding a blog march about varied breastfeeding experiences, including experiences with breastfeeding support in Ireland. This inspired me to write a post about breastfeeding as well.

My breast feeding journey
When I was pregnant with my first child, I decided that it would be a great idea to combine breast- and bottle feeding. But in the hospital they convinced me how healthy and important it was to breastfeed exclusively and then I decided to go that road. I got a breast pump to express milk so my baby could get a bottle with breast milk when I was out and about or for the scarce times that I would leave her in the care of h…
