Welcome to my blog

In this blog I will write about everything that has to do with being a mum and a woman. It will be about my personal experiences as well as about things that I find interesting and which I want to share. It will also be about my faith in God.

No longer an employee

Yesterday I sent a resignation letter to my employer. This means that I will not be returning to work in September as I originally planned.
After I sent the letter I sent messages to two people whom I want to purchase things from for Nevaeh-Divine. LOL
I barely have any money coming in, but I believe that God will provide. Because He promised that He will.
I’m not sure what’s next but I know that it’s going to be good.
We’re thinking of moving back to the Netherlands for a while and so I’m probably going to work again next year.
I’ve seen an advertisement from the same company I work for but than in the Netherlands so I might apply but I don’t want to start straight away.
And we’ll have to look for a house but there are two houses from family which could be an option.
We don’t really want to leave here but there is probably better medical care for Ixora and there are a few other pluses like I can finally try to finish my law study, as my father would’ve liked me to do.
Even though he is no longer with us, I want to make him proud and I know he really wanted me to finish my study.

Also it will be good to be close to family and friends again. It isn’t definite yet, but now that I no longer really work here, the chance is very big that we might move back in a few months.
So we’ll be here for some more months at least. For a moment, I thought ‘oh no I’m unemployed now’ but I had to remind myself that I’m actually self –employed LOL even if I don’t see that much money coming in.(yet)
And oh boy, I am now joining all those other SAHM ‘s (okay rather WAHM’s) something I wanted so much but didn’t believe we could afford. Oh well, I didn’t really have a choice.
My employer couldn’t give me less hours. Not even 4 hours per week less, no parental leave at all, because they have a lack of personnel. And we would then need childcare for all three kids for a couple of hours in the afternoon.
So I didn’t really have a choice, but I believe that we’re going to be alright.
By Gods grace we will. Because He promised to supply in all our needs according to His riches in glory and I’m going to stand upon that promise and have all I need. Amen?
After my additional maternity leave started and I didn’t really have an income anymore, it was quite hard. I wasn’t used to not having money anymore, not being able to buy stuff, bills not paid.
I couldn’t wait to go back to work just to have money, especially because I wanted to buy things for the kids and wanted to be able to do things with them.
Now I’m more used to it. I’m taking it easy now, trusting the Lord.

Seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.
And now that I’m not going back to work, I’m actually quite happy because if I’m honest I love being a mom and I’d rather have the chance to mother most of the time than to work 40 hours per week. So I’m happy I can do that for at least a few more months.

So what am I planning to purchase now?
Nevaeh is almost 6 months and we’re finally going to start spoon feeding her so I want to get her a bumbo seat with tray. I wanted a bumbo seat ever since Ixora was a baby but I found them much too expensive so I never got one but Nevaeh is already sitting even though she gets tired after a while and can’t sit for long so it would be ideal for her.

This baby reminds me of Nevaeh-Divine a little bit. (apart from the hair)

I can’t wait to start her on solids because she seems so hungry lately. Poor kid.
And then she seems quite bored as well. She grabs everything to try to play with it. So also something I never had for the other kids: I want to get her an activity centre or rather the Graco Fun rock Entertainer.

Well, I hope it works out. I’m buying them second hand of course.
I hope to have them both by next week and that she will really enjoy both of them.
(I will post the rest of my wish list soon.)

Have a great weekend.

Love and blessings,
